Unlike other surrounding villages near the Belgard parish, Redlin did not attend church in Belgard Stadt. Residents went to church in Körlin, whose records–outside of the military garrison church books–did not survive. This book chronicles land ownership in Redlin from the first mortgage and inheritable leases. I suppose by today’s standards, this could be considered similar to a property abstract.

While the script can be difficult at times, individual names are typically easy to pick out and appear frequently throughout the books.

Help us make these records more accessible for researchers worldwide. If you can read old script, we would love your help to make the entries in these books searchable. Please consider donating your time, even if it's just for a few pages. (We also use Google Sheets so you can see where the last person left off and where the work needs to be continued!)
