Latin Marriage Entries in Parish Registers

This post is a stub entry, and it will be added to as more information is available.

Sample 1

Five consecutive entries from the Kirchenbuch Wasserliesch 1752-1797, microfilm 560,289, no.1, page 1. This priest used a very minimized text for marriage records.


Anno 1752
11ma January Petrus Weber filius legitimus Philippi Weber et Elisabethae conjugum ex Oberbillig et Helena Meyer vidua Joannis Frank ex Reinich

13ma January Mathias Greif filius legitimus Petri Greif et Conjugis Seick [?] ex Waweren et Anna Barbara Turck filia legitima Pauli Turck p: m: et Susannae Conjugis sua ex Lursch

29ma Junii Nicolaus Braun viduus ex Lursch et Anna Schuman vidua Mathia Reis ex Lürsch subscriptis Graf in fidem JBadamy Cur: in Waßerlursch


Year 1752
11th January Peter Weber legitimate son of Philip Weber and Elisabeth married couple from Oberbillig and Helena Meyer widow of Johann Frank from Reinich

13th January Mathias Greif legitimate son of Peter Greif and married wife Seick from Wawern and Barbara Turk legitimate daughter of Paul Turk predeceased and Susanna his married wife from Lursch (modern: Wasserliesch)

1st February Heinrich Seiler legitimate son of Johann Georg Seiler predeceased and Elisabeth his wife from Konz and Susanna Werrel legitimate daughter of Ludwig Werrel and Barbara married couple from Lursch

3rd February Johann Breser legitimate son of Hubert Breser and Clara married couple from Lursch and Anna Maria Lambert widow of Mathias Scharfbilllig from Reinig

29th June Nicolaus Braun widower from Lursch and Anna Schuman widow of Mathias Reis from Lursch undersigned [testified] by the Count in faith J. Badamy curate in Wasserliesch

  • Note that none of the marriage entries state specifically that the marriage was solemnized. That fact is inferred by the title of the volume, Heiratsregister.

Common terms

anno (year)
conjugum (married couple), conjugis (married wife)
et (and)
ex (from, indicating a place of residence)filius legitimus (legitimate son), filia legitima (legitimate daughter)
-ma (suffix indicating an ordinal number)
vidua (widow), viduus (widower)

Sample 2

Two consecutive entries from the Kirchenbuch Wasserliesch 1752-1797, microfilm 560,289, no.1, page 19. With more information comes more variety. I provide several pages of examples.
