I can't open imagens of a database in Germany. How can I solve it?
Can you share which database so someone can take a look and give you a precise answer? Not all record sets can be viewed from home. Some can only be viewed at an FSC (FamilySearch Center), an Affiliate Library, or only in Salt Lake City. It depends on the contract with the record holder.
Hello, Im glad someome read this!
I'm having trouble with germany births and baptism.
"Deutschland Geburten und Taufen, 1558-1898", database, FamilySearch
Unfortunatelly this textbox doesn't allow the link.
This forum allows a link as long as you don't try to isolate it: https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1473000
First, on the collection landing page, "Due to privacy laws, recent records may not be displayed." That's a catch-all phrase to cover any eventuality. Since these are from the 19th century and earlier, privacy laws don't come into play, but the contract with the record holder may.
I searched for a random name to see a relevant DGS (digitized film number). Opening that film number within the series, the message is vague rather than the specific "You can see this record at XXXX."
Since it is a German record, that probably means it can be viewed on one of the German archive sites. The same information may be available on other (paying) sites. For example, Ancestry has some German baptismal records.
And that collection pulls from a variety of locations and denominations. If you provide a specific record/person you are searching for, someone may be able to give better advice.
I always forget which denomination (Catholic or Protestant, which in Germany was usually Lutheran) is on the pay site Archion and is therefore index-only on FS.
I'm having trouble with germany births and baptism. Like this link below, it has some informations on it, but I need to check the whole document.
Here's the catalog page for that church: https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/278651
The images are not on FS because they're behind the paywall on Archion: https://www.archion.de/de/suche/?tx_sparchiondocuments_spsearch%5Baction%5D=list&tx_sparchiondocuments_spsearch%5Bcontroller%5D=Search&cHash=319ecd318aafaf37fcee3de55d0ef37d#searchResult
(Maybe I'll remember for a few weeks that Archion has the Lutheran records.)
Thanks for checking @Julia Szent-Györgyi. I thought that was the case, but I was on my way out the door to my FSC to indulge in limited access records of my own.
How can I see this catalog?
I'm looking for Friedrich Wilhelm Müller, August Müller son's.
I gave the link above to the FS catalog page, but I don't think it's the kind of page you're looking for: it just tells you where the records are from (Kokocko, a town now in Poland), where they were microfilmed (in Berlin), the broad types and year ranges of the contents of the microfilms, and some basic information about accessing them. The film with the baptisms is not available at all on FS to public (non-LDS) accounts like mine, while the film with the marriages and deaths has an index available only. Judging by the results I'm getting from searching that film, what's indexed from it are the marriage records only -- that is, they did not index the indexes.
I see that Archion's search results are not designed to be saved or shared, unfortunately, so to see what they have for Kokotzko, you'll need to type it into the Location field at https://www.archion.de/en/search/. You'll see that what's available online is a baptism index, baptisms, marriages, and a burial index.
It looks like their prices start at about 20 Euros (for one month and 50 downloads: https://www.archion.de/en/price-list/).
