A Few Marriage and Death Records

Amsterdam, NY
Montgomery County, NY

Compiled by Lisa Slaski

These records were found on the same pages as those of interest to me (surnames Gerling and Droege) among copied records from the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church of Amsterdam. They were nice enough to peruse their books looking for specific records for me. The marriage records are all old style German handwriting. The death records are mostly typewritten except for a section for 1916 and 1917 deaths as noted. If you write to the church, please be patient - their staff is limited and it may take a while before they respond.

The site coordinators have no further information about these records, e.g. what years they cover. The names above come from information received as a result of one individual's research request to the church, and she knew her ancestors were affiliated with this church.

For your own family search, you need to contact the church yourself. Please provide them with some concrete information to go on (i.e. probability that your family attended this church, e.g. "so-and-so was married there in the 1920s," "I know my grandmother was baptized there and perhaps her other siblings born 19xx were as well," etc.). Bear in mind that vague "fishing expedition" requests tend to go unanswered by busy church staff, historical societies, libraries, etc.

If you do receive vital records information about your relatives, or copies of pages, please consider sharing with other researchers by adding to the list above.
