== What is in This Collection? ==
== Collection Time Period ==This collection will include records from 1650 to 1900. Additional images may be added periodically to this collection to give the viewer more of a selection.<br>
Entries are usually arranged in chronological order and, after 1784, in a columnar format. During certain times, one book was used to list all the baptisms, marriages, and burials for all the villages in a parish for one year. At other times each village has its own section of baptisms, marriages, and burials, which were listed chronologically. Some records are on preprinted forms, and most include indexes.
Czech church records are usually in one of three languages: [[Czech Republic Genealogical Word List|Czech]], [[German Word List|German]], or [[Latin Genealogical Word List|Latin]]. Often, one parish consists of books written in all three. Records from one state regional archive (statní oblastní archive) may favor one or more languages. For example, records from Litoměřice are usually written in German or Latin. Records from Plzeň or Třeboň are usually written in Czech, German, and Latin equally.

The edict of the Council of Trent in 1563, which mandated the creation of church books, applied to Czech congregations. Austrian emperor Emperor Joseph II issued the Edict of Toleration on October 13, 1781, which allowed Protestants, Jews, and others to keep their own church records under the supervision of the Catholic Church. Though the Protestants were allowed to keep registers starting in 1771, they were copied into Catholic registers. In 1781 , Protestants continued to keep registers under Catholic supervision.
Starting February 10, 1784, Joseph II required that all church birth entries include the full names of both parents and all grandparents, along with their towns of origin and their military conscription numbers or unique address, such as Plichtice č. 5 (č is an abbreviation for čislo, or "number"). The emperor also required that records be kept in Latin or German, though Czech was often used. Column headings, which had started around 1784 (sometimes earlier), were also made compulsory.
In 1790, the Austrian government (under which Czech records were kept) created a law requiring indexes to be kept. In 1802, another law was passed requiring all older matriky (church books) to be indexed. Only rarely are volumes not indexed.

The emperor also required that records be official legal copy was kept by local officials when many of the clergy refused to perform Catholic rites for non-Catholics. Everyone was registered under this new system, not just those appearing in Latin Catholic or German, though Czech was often used.

Church books were first created to identify those who had received church sacraments. After 1869, they were also used as an official record of vital events by civil authorities.
The earliest Czech book was created in 1441 (a book of christenings from Horní Jiřetín). Books have been kept to the present, but because of privacy laws, they are available for research only through 1905.

*Copy down all the information from the record. Save or print a copy of the image if possible
*Cite the record. See below for help citing records in this collection
*Use the marriage date and place as the basis for compiling a new family group or for verifying existing information
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth of each spouse to find a couple's birth records and parents' names
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in census records
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate church and land records
*Compile the marriage entries for every person who has the same surname as the bride or groom; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual
*Continue to search the marriage records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the bride and groom who may have married in the same county or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family or even the second marriage of a parent. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify
*When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct
