Re: Stettin, Pomerania Church Records
Posted by: Robert T. (ID *****5817) Date: January 18, 2006 at 10:00:06
In Reply to: Stettin, Pommern Church Records by Betty Frey of 60037

Betty, Stettin was an overwhelmingly Lutheran city with six Lutheran churches and only one Roman Catholic church. Following the expulsion of the original German inhabitants of Stettin following World War II and the repopulating of Stettin with Poles, all the Lutheran churches (including St. Gertrud's) were of course converted to Roman Catholic churches. To my knowledge, St. Gertrud's records are now in Berlin.

If you live near a Mormon Family History Center, you can obtain and view there on microfilm the records of St. Gertrud's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Stettin, covering the years 1603 right up to the end, 1945.
