Canton St.Gallen Genealogical Records
The format of the detailed data for Canton St.Gallen differs from the format of all other cantons for historical reasons: the page in this more detailed format has already been written several years earlier than for all other cantons.
Almost all St.Gallen Church Records have been microfilmed by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; these films may also be viewed at the State Archives (prior booking of the film reader is strongly recommended). Records of several parishes have been completely extracted (at least for certain time periods) by members of the St.Gallen/Appenzell Genealogical Society, and look-ups are offered.
For genealogical records other than church records, filmed by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, check the list of communities.
A list of all communities of Canton St.Gallen provides links to webpages of almost all community administrations, usually including the "Zivilstandsamt" (= Civil Registry Office) which needs to be contacted for reasearch after 1876 in most cases.
