German Immigrants in American Church Records - Vol. 19: Missouri (excluding St. Louis County); Edited by Roger P. Minert; Ph.D., A.G.; 2016; 761 pp; Hard Cover; Every-name index; Acid Free Paper; ISBN 978-1-62859-093-7; Item #FR0653.

Dr. Minert and a team of researchers at BYU are currently involved in a project wherein they read and extract Americans' German vital records from historic local church vital records. These church records often pinpoint German origins in the "old country." Places and dates of birth, marriage, and previous residence in Germany are commonly found in these records. Dr. Minert estimates that 65-76 percent of historic local church records give an immigrant's exact place of birth. Entries found in the volumes include people born in Switzerland.

Typical entries from the St. Johannis Evangelical Church, of Berger, Franklin Co., Missouri are as follows:
  • Elisabeth Jacke b. Niderwil, Zofingen, Switzerland 29 March 1829; d. Berger, MO 29 Dec 1894; bur. Berger 31 Dec 1894; m. - - Lauer. Ref: Deaths 1894.
  • Carl Heinrich Ludwig Bruening b. Haarburg, Sachsen (province) 7 Aug 1827; d. Berger, MO 15 Jan 1895. Ref: Deaths 1895.
  • Johanne Louise Horstmann b. Brockhagen, Westfalen 12 Oct 1837; d. Berger, MO 1895, age 57-7-12; m. 1869, Karl Kautz. Ref: Deaths 1895.

The first 18 volumes of this ongoing series were published by Lewis Rohrbach of Picton Press. Following his death, Family Roots Publishing contracted with Dr. Minert to continue publication of the series - starting with this volume, which deals with Missouri church vital records.
