Map of Catholic Parishes in the Southern & Central Waldviertel

With exception of more recent records that are kept in the individual parishes, most of the existing baptismal, marriage, and death records for these parishes are stored at the Catholic Diocese Archives in St. Pölten. Current exceptions to this are Gföhl, St. Johann bei Großheinrichschlag, and Zwettl Stadt where all records remain with their parishes, and the parishes of Kottes and Purk where their earlier records are stored at the Stift Göttweig Archives near Krems. A digitization project is currently underway throughout the St. Pölten Diocese, which will ultimately result in most non-current parish records being stored at the diocese archives in St. Pölten in both their original and digital formats.
