Church record extractions for German Protestant Immigrants in SE Wisconsin

Church record extractions for German Protestant Immigrants in SE Wisconsin

Classification: Query
There is a new research tool available for those genealogists looking for their Germanic ancestors who immigrated to SE Wisconsin. A new book has been published (the 5th in a series) titled:

"German Immigrants in American Church Records: Vol. 5 Wisconsin Southeast Protestant"

This volume is a compilation of extracted names from church records in SE Wisconsin. It is not an extraction of every church record. It does not include any individuals born in America. It is an extraction of only those immigrants born in Germanic areas.

Of note, it includes an extraction of immigrant individuals in the records from Trinity Lutheran church in Freistadt - who's records are not available to the general public except by contacting the church directly. Also, it lacks any Lutheran churches in the city of Milwaukee (St. Luke's in South Milwaukee is the exception).

The book does not include every Protestant church in SE Wisconsin, the churches included are:

A description of the organization that put the books together (and where to purchase the book) can be found at: (and by-the-way, I have no connection to the printing company or the organization that compiled these books.)

I am going to see if I can obtain a copy of the book through the inter-libraby loan program at my local pubic library.
