I am excited to report that I have completed indexing the FamilySearch film of Ashkenazi birth, marriage and death records recorded in Altona from the 1820s until 1874. While there are some years missing and others with illegible entries, this is a remarkably complete register documenting the storied community of Altona. In total, this database has over 4,000 entries and contains: 2,016 births, 656 marriages, and 1,397 deaths. Many entries also contain Hebrew names, which have also been transcribed and are searchable.

They can now be searched for free in JewishGen's GerSIG database at https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Germany/

Kudos to Michael Moritz for his labor of love in translating and indexing the Altona records. I remember looking them up years ago and they were, in many places, almost impossible for me to decipher. He has done a phenomenal job and deserves all of our thanks.
