The list of registers is available in the PDF format. After opening and expanding the "bookmarks" it is possible to skim through the chapters of individual churches.

When ordering the registers, please always specify the call number of the volume, the time span it covers and the information on the type of the register. In case of microfilms, please state also the number of the archival box.

Explanatory notes:
Call number (e.g. DUCH N1) contains the abbreviation of the parish district, type of the records ("N" indicates births, "O" indicates marriages, "Z" indicates deaths) and serial number.
The type of register available is mentioned in the last column of the list of registers : "M" indicates that a microfilm copy of this register is available (the last column indicates its location). "D" indicates that a digital copy of the relevant register is available on the screens in the Reading Room. "KNIHA" -  indicates an original register which must be ordered with a 3-days notice (Reading Room). „POSKOZ" - indicates original registers which are physically damaged and cannot be made available in the Reading Room. You can order a free microfilm copy (the delivery time depends on the workload of the  photographic workshop by the time you submit your order).
