11/8/2012 7:27 AM Dear Mr. Assan,
The State Archives Freiburg do not conduct family history research as part of their communication activities. Rather, this must be left to the interested parties themselves or their representatives. As far as the place of origin is a locality in southern Baden, the staff at the reading room of the State Archives (opening times: see below) will give recommendations and point to the documents that might be relevant for research. The registry books (duplicates of the church books) of communities in southern Baden with information on births, marriages, and deaths are available for the period of 1810-1870. These have been photographed and are available on the Internet in their entirety ( You can search for your ancestors yourself in the scanned originals and print the pages in question.
The civil registry book for Breisach from 1832 (shelf number: L 10 Nr 466) that is relevant for your research can be found under the following address:

For entries from the period before 1810, we recommend a request to the Archdiocesan Archives Freiburg (PO Box, 79095 Freiburg, e-mail: or the Archives of the Evangelische Landeskirche in Baden (Blumenstraße 1, 76133 Karlsruhe, e-mail:
For civil registation entries from the period after 1870 you should contact the respective municipality or city administration.
Under the address you will find genealogists who conduct family history research for a fee.
With kind regards,

My notes:
The scans of the Freiburg BMD records under the address given above are Catholic and Jewish records interspersed. To navigate through the records, go to "Bildauswahl" and then set "Bilder pro Seite" to 50. This way you can find the title pages for the various sections.
