On further planning for the church records in Schleswig-Holstein:

According to information from an employee of the North Church's State Church Archives, the church books of the Altholstein church district are to be put online at the end of 2021 or 2022; the same applies to the Dithmarschen and Lübeck-Lauenburg church districts.

The timetable for the Plön-Segeberg church district is still open, as discussions are still being held here about digitization.

The church district of Hamburg-Ost (including the former church district Stormarn) was supposed to be digitized in 2021, but due to the Corona pandemic, this will drag on until 2022.
That's encouraging news! Thanks Dieter!

I have very vague information that one ancestor came from Bremen (born before 1710). Are there any indexes to search for names in the area?

Susan, this is for sure not "best answer", please unselect it laugh But thanks anyway wink

Hallo Maria,

Bremen is a big problem. It has an own Lutheran state church and concerning to my information is Bremen the only of 20 German state churches who is until now not member of the archion project.

That mean, that there are now records avaible on archion for Bremen and that there will be no records on archion until they joined the project.

And for information, archion has no indexes, you must search the church books page by page.

Thank you Dieter! It's a bit like Riksarkivet in Sweden I guess. With as little information as I have to go on, there is no rush to go to Bremen's archives. wink

Unfortunately no.

A couple of considerations - at that time, "Bremen" referred not just to the present-day city of Bremen, but to the duchies of Bremen and Verden (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bremen-Verden). These were the former territories of the prince-bishopric of Bremen that had been secularized in 1648. Thus, someone from "Bremen" might actually come from 50 miles distance from the city (I have seen this usage in Norwegian as well as in German sources).

There are probably hundreds of parishes in this area, very few of whose books have been digitized so far on archion.de and only a single one on ancestry.com as far as I can tell. For the ones on archion.de, there is no machine-searchable index, and even the individual parish books back in the early 1700s were generally not manually indexed. Thus, finding a baptism means paging through the parish books hoping that you stumble on the baptism. And without knowing which parish to look in, that is beyond "needle in haystack" tedious.

As for an index to names that German genealogists have put into their family trees, see http://www.gedbas.de. It does feature a number of Heinrich Rogges, but I'm not sure how useful it will be - and the coverage of this index is extremely random (like searching family trees on ancestry.com).

The local genealogical society in Bremen (with 1100 members) is called Die Maus; their website (in German) is at https://die-maus-bremen.info/index.php. Perhaps they may be able to give you further guidance.

An, thank you very much for your interesting and helpful comments! I appreciate it!
