      There seems to be an inference that only the Catholic church would have used
      Latin in its records, which is untrue. For long periods, especially prior to
      the 1840s, Latin was the language used for all church and other official
      records regardless of religion.

      Doesn't matter. The Catholic church kept all the records. In the town
      films
      I looked at, the Evangelical church was built in 1774. Prior to that the
      Catholic church recorded birth marriage and death records for the
      Evangelical
      folks as well as their own. As a result I was able to get back to 1668 with
      my
      Evangelical family through the Catholic church records. Don't overlook them

      because your relatives weren't Catholic. There was a slight over lap, from
      about 1774 - 1784 or so that I found both churches recording the same
      events. Was
      interesting because at times one would give more information than the other.

      Also interesting to see that vast majority of my Kristofiks, who were
      Catholic, switch over to the Evangelical church after it was built. I
      suspect there
      were some hard feelings back then to see half the congregation switch over
      to
      the Evangelical church.
