Baptism Index, 1748-1793
By Rosa Raiman
Introduction and Instructions
On the following pages you will find a list baptisms from the Church of St. Michel in Soufflenheim, Alsace, for the years 1748 through 1793. The list contains over three thousand records.
This index is the work of Rosa Raiman, who spent many months compiling it from LDS FHL Microfilm 740080, completing the work in April, 2001. We believe this is a comprehensive list of every baptism available on microfilm during that period. The data was converted into web pages by Brian J. Smith, who is also the author of this introduction.
If you find names here that are of interest you, we recommend that you look up the original microfilm record at any Family History Center. You will find additional information not contained in this index, such as the month and day of baptism, the names of godparents, and in most cases the father's occupation and town of origin. No doubt you may also discover some errors, for which we apologize. The source documents were handwritten and often difficult to read, so no doubt some errors crept in during transcription.
A few notes:
For questions and comments about this index, you are welcome to contact Rosa Raiman or Brian J. Smith. If you have information to add, we would be glad to receive it.
