German Glossary of Causes of Death and other Archaic Medical Terms

Make a selection from the column on the left or search for the term by using the Google search box below

I have compiled a comprehensive list of Causes of Death found in German Church Records. Search for the German term here to find the English translation. Then go to the English List to find the definition.

All pictures in the German Glossary were scanned during my own research in the Mecklenburg, Germany church books unless otherwise stated.

Please send me an email with any unlisted words or phrases that you have come across. They will be added to the "undefined" page after review. All new terms will eventually be added to the alphabetical lists. Please include the language that the term is from.

I am happy to help transcribe and translate your hard to read Causes of Death. If possible, please include a scan of the record with your email. It is always more helpful to see the handwritten original when trying to figure out the difficult words.
