New records added to German Genealogy Group website

More records have recently been added to the German Genealogy Group website. The German Genealogy Group meets monthly, the first Thursday of the month, at the V.F.W. in Hicksville.

A baptism record index is now available for Trinity Reformed Church located in Ridgewood, Queens. In 1843 an English speaking congregation was formed in New York City on Avenue B and Fifth Street. It was part of the Reformed Church of America. In 1853 a group of German speaking people in Williamsburg, Brooklyn formed The Deutsche Evangelishe Lutherische St. Petri Kirche (the German Evangelical Church of St. Peters). In 1919 these two groups merged and formed the Trinity Reformed Church of Brooklyn, located at 66-30 60th Place in Ridgewood, Queens, New York. The Evangelical Mission Church on Avenue B, corner of Fifth Street also combined with them.

The records in this database are as follows: 4,701 Baptism Records: 1855-1881, 1944-1996.
