First German Baptist Church  Southside Pittsburgh

Erste deutsche Baptisten-Gemeinde

1862-1918

(Temple Baptist Church in Carrick 1918 -- present)

 

 

The Southside Pittsburgh First German Baptist Church records contain information on births, marriages, children, immigration, and conversion to the Baptist faith for many members of the church.  However, we know that these records are not complete and many known members of the church are missing.  It is not known when the records were written, but most appear to date before 1900.  The church history began before 1862, but the earlier information appears incomplete on many older members of the church.

 

Surviving records from the Southside Pittsburgh First German Baptist Church have been microfilmed by the Western Pennsylvania Genealogical Society and are available at Carnegie Library in Pittsburgh in the WPGS collection in the Pennsylvania Room.  Microfilming covered two church register books, approximately 250 Fragebogen (questionnaires with one page for each member, though many members are missing in the surviving records), and the 50th anniversary bulletin in 1912.

 

In addition, articles on these records have been published in the WPGS Quarterly (all 2007): 1. Vol 33 #3 lists dates and places of birth for immigrant members of the church listed in the Fragebogen;  2. Vol 34 #1 lists information for members of the church who converted to the Baptist faith in Germany and discusses the difficulties encountered by modern German Baptists (not the Anabaptists, though the legacy of the Anabaptists affected the modern Baptists) in Germany in the mid-1800s; and 3. Vol 34 #2 lists information on marriages and children, based on the Fragebogen and partially on the church registers.  Not all information in the church registers has been covered by these articles, and the researcher is encouraged to consult the original records at Carnegie Library.

 

See also ‘History of the churches of the Pittsburgh Baptist Association’ by William Russell Pankey on the website of the University of Pittsburgh Library for 'Historic Pittsburgh'.  In 1918 the congregation changed the name to Temple Baptist and moved to Brownsville Road in Carrick, where these records were recently discovered.

List of church members from two church books

This is not a complete list of members with entries in the church registers.  This list is based on pages for which I have copies and includes maybe 80% of the entries with information beyond the date of joining the church.  The original church records are handwritten, in part in old German script, but the WPGS microfilm is very clear.  Some of my working copies are not clear, but I have been very privileged to have obtained this information.  I have checked this list several times, and I apologize if any typing errors remain. 

Many entries do not contain genealogical information; but many entries do list date and place of birth (often including parish in Germany), data and place of marriage, and date and place of birth for children.  These entries include many immigrants, but also members born in Pittsburgh.  Many entries contain useful genealogical information, though a few errors in the original records have been noticed.

These pages refer to two different church books prior to 1900.  Three sets of entries are identified (I, II, and III) from two books.  However, my copies were obtained prior to microfilming and are not correlated with the microfilm sequence.  If page numbers are not visible on the microfilm, then these three sections may be recognized by the page format.  The family register (section II) with page numbers over 150 was alphabetized.  Section I may be recognized with 6 entries per page, though pages in Section I following page 80 list no entry numbers; while section III often has 12 or more entries per page.  Below:  name,  maiden name [where (geb ?spelling) means that the maiden name is listed, but I hesitate to guess at the pastor’s handwriting] and year of birth. 

GBL means that the place of birth in Germany is listed.  I may have entered GBL only once for each member even if other pages in the church registers also carry the information because my intent is to identify those members whose places of birth are listed, and the researcher should then check all page entries for the member for clarity and agreement.  NPL means that no place of birth is listed.  Again, BP means born in Pittsburgh, and GBL refers to any German speaking Eastern European location regardless of political borders.  Check the list for members from Oberkaufungen, Kurhessen at the bottom of this page.  Note again that my access is limited, and the absence of this notation does not necessarily mean that the information is not available in the church records.

Members from Oberkaufungen and Niederkaufungen Kurhessen

 

Members of the First German Baptist Church immigrated from many villages in Germany and East Prussia.  However, at least 60 immigrant members of the congregation were born in the villages of Oberkaufungen and Niederkaufungen, Kurhessen, about 10 km east of the city of Kassel.  Again, this may not be a complete list.

 

Women are listed here by their maiden surnames where known.

German churches on Pittsburgh Southside

 

I believe that the First German/Temple Baptist microfilm completes the availability of the records of the major German churches in Birmingham/Southside Pittsburgh in the late 1800s:

 

1.  First German Baptist/Temple Baptist is available at WPGS/Carnegie Library [WPGS microfilm 315 – listed in WPGS online catalog]

     church was located on S 19th between Sarah and Carey

 

2.  First German United Evangelical Protestant/ Birmingham United Church of Christ is available at WPGS/Carnegie Library and at AIS (University of Pittsburgh archives)

     church was located on Jane Street between S 17th and S 18th

 

3.  First German Methodist Episcopal Church (Birmingham/Pittsburgh) is available at AIS (University of Pittsburgh archives)

     church was located on Bingham near Ormsby

 

4.  St Paul's German Evangelical Lutheran Church (Birmingham)/Good Shepherd Lutheran Church of South Hills (Pittsburgh) is available at LDS Family History Centers and also at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania Library in Philadelphia

     church was located at S 18th (Meadow) and Sidney

 

Note:  Birmingham was the historical name of the Southside before the area joined Pittsburgh about 1874.

 

 

Historical Pittsburgh resources

 

Before 1900 the Southside Flats were known as Birmingham, East Birmingham, and Monongahela while the Southside Slopes were part of Lower Saint Clair.  Members of the congregation of the First German Baptist Church began migrating farther south to Beltzhoover, Carrick, Knoxville, and Mount Oliver, and in 1918 the new church was built on Brownsville Road.

 

The University of Pittsburgh Library website Historic Pittsburgh is an excellent source of historical information, including digital access to historical books and city directories (more than 20 between the 1850s and 1930), historical maps, census indexes, and old photos.  The G.M. Hopkins map of the South Side in 1916 is recommended (especially plates 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10, and 11) for addresses where members of the First German Baptist congregation were listed in the census and city directories.  A  few members listed in the census as owning homes on the Southside were identified as owners on this 1916 map.  Note that some house numbers have changed, and some street names have also changed today, including S 19th Street which was known as Joseph and S 18th as Meadow (see the 1872 map, plate 104).

 

The J&L mill has been replaced by a commercial development SouthSide Works, but many century old houses remain in Southside neighborhoods (check date of construction on listings by address in the Allegheny County Assessments website, which includes images).  The First German Baptist Church built on S 19th  Street between Carey and Sarah in 1887 still stands today, occupied and well maintained by the Saint Marys Russian Orthodox congregation.
