This online gazetteer features historical places in the Kingdom of Saxony. Choose "Orte", then type in the village you are looking for and the databank will give you all the features that pertain to this village. It will feature jurisdictions (box 5) and will provide the church with time frame (box 7) the particular village belongs to.


I bring up the online gazetteer

I click on: Orte

I enter the town: Liebenau

I have to choose between three possibilities. I choose Liebenau by Lauenstein

I click on Volltextsuche

In box 5 I see to which administration Liebenau belonged between 1696 and 2008.

In box 7 I see to which parish Liebenau belonged between 1500 and 1930.
