Membership Listing 1891 (-1896?)
St. Peter's Evangelical & Reformed (German) Lutheran Church
East Liberty, PA

Transcription of microfilmed Membership List — January 1891—?
St. Peter’s Evangelical and Reformed German Lutheran Church, East End, Pittsburgh PA
University of Pittsburgh Archives: AIS Micro 77:20, Reel 1

[Notes prior to reading:

Names on pages 33-36 and first 5 names on page 37 are all in same handwriting; this probably
indicates that one person transcribed the names from the old church book (see “Abschrift”
below). Remainder of names evidently are signatures of new members after 1891; almost all
seem to be in different handwritings. Additional notes (“gestorben” “getreten” etc) following
the 1891 original names seem to have been added later.

Prior to these transcribed pages are pages headed “Constitution.”

The “slash” mark is used between possible deciphers of an unclear word: Hant/Haus, where
the word could be deciphered as “Hant” or “Haus”. The / is NOT part of the original document.

Bracketed Items [ ] are either notes on my transcription, my translation of the German or
my questioning my own transcription. They are not part of the original document.

Due to the difficulties of deciphering German Schrift, I do not guarantee the correctness of
any name or translation and recommend researchers going to the original document.

Please check Glossary and Symbol chart at bottom of transcription

[These are the last of the transcribed names. The handwriting is different with each name
from here on. This makes deciphering the names more difficult (not being able to compare
letters from one name to another.) Some of these names have no period at the end of the

Symbols in document, and CJMT’s description/comments

X =simple ‘X’ (diagonal criss/cross mark); sometimes used in records as a symbol
for married. There are many “X” markings in the later pages which may have no actual
meaning, but have been transcribed.

+ =(vertical/horizontal crossing) sometimes a ‘Cross’ is a symbol in records, meaning

+: =‘Cross’ with ‘apostrophe’ marks in both right hand quadrants; meaning is unknown.

+.. =‘Cross with two ‘apostrophe’ marks in lower right hand quadrant; meaning is unknown.

CJMT’s Transcription Glossary

ausgetreten=worn out;
[meaning unknown, but perhaps: resigned from the church or dropped membership?].
fortgegangen=went away
fortgezogen=moved away
fort.* = “fort.”=probably an abbreviation for either fortgegangen or fortgezogen;
CJMT’s asterisk* added.

CJMT’s transcription symbols, and miscellaneous

[?] =Accuracy of decipher of word immediately preceding is REALLY questioned.
? =stands in place of an undecipherable letter or digit

“E. E.” was the abbreviation often used for the “East End”, or the Pittsburgh area known
now as East Liberty. St. Peter’s church has been located in the “East End” for its entire
existence, since 1839: first on Sheridan Avenue, then on Frankstown Road, and in June 1889
to Collins Avenue at Station Street, where it remained for 106 years. In 1995 the now-small
congregation sold the Collins/Station facility and built a small chapel on the grounds of
St. Peter’s Cemetery on Lemington Ave, where Sunday services are still held. St. Peter’s
congregation has been a worshiping community on a continuous basis for 164 years. (2003)
