FURNAS COUNTY NEBRASKA

ST. MATTHEW LUTHERAN CHURCH


This church was located northwest of Arapahoe. The church was active from the 1890's through the 1960's. The church is now gone but the cemetery remains. The following links take you to the pages of the register that was kept by the ministers of the church. You will note that the earliest entries are in German and progress to English in the later years. The original register is in the possesion of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Arapahoe. It is in very poor condition and they will no longer allow copies to be made. The copies here are made from other copies so are not of the best quality. As I find time I will try to clean these up and create a name index of the individuals in the register.


Tauf Register Name Index This register is for the birth and christinings of babies and new members. Most entries list the parents with mothers Maiden name.
Confirmation Register Name Index This register is for confirmation of church members. Gives name of confirment, and generally the parents names.
Trau Register Name Index This is the marriages performed in the church. Gives names of bride and groom and in most cases the parents also.
Burial Register Name Index This register is for funerals performed at the church. Date of death and burial and cause of death. Children sometimes listed.
Members Register Name Index This register is a census of the members for 1918. Lists all members and family relationship.

Attention, the Register files are in Adobe Acrobat and can be viewed with Acrobat Reader 5.0 or higher. The Name Index is a transcript of the original document.
