Mennonite Births in the Gross Czyste, Culm Catholic Church Records: 1800–1808

LDS film #162323

Glenn Penner

During the majority of their time in Poland Mennonites were required to register their births, deaths and marriages with the local Catholic Church. Despite frequent protests, this requirement continued after that part of Poland became the province of West Prussia. In some cases these births, marriages and deaths were recorded by the Catholic Church. In the case of the Catholic parish of Gross Czyste births from 1800 to 1808 have been recorded. All Mennonite births are identified. The records have many entries which contain Mennonite sounding surnames. These people may have had Mennonite ancestors. However, those entries also include the godparents of the infant, which the Mennonite entries do not have.

The birth records are particularly important since the Mennonites in the Gross Czyste parish belonged to the Mennonite congregation of Schoensee. The Mennonite records of Schoensee disappeared at the end of WW2 and are very likely gone forever.

Note that there are a few cases where a birth is entered twice in the record. Both entries are only reproduced here if they differ in some way.
