Some of the listings below are extractions from Zichydorf church records, or so-called “secondary sources.” While ZVA has great confidence in the people who did these extractions, it is always possible that errors or omissions may have escaped detection. These secondary sources are terrific finding aids, but a serious genealogist will want to compare their results to the original records.
