Next month I will travel to Europe for business. While I'm there, I'd like
to take a couple days and do some research, but I'm not sure exactly how to
proceed. According to his obituary, my G-Grandfather, Dietrich Ernst EVERS
was born in Schweineburck, Marx, and confirmed in Etzel.
If someone can help me with the following questions, I will be grateful.
1) Should I start my research at the Oldenburg archive or go directly to
the lutheran church and the towns' civil registrars? Is there any way to be
sure these towns' records are at the archives?
2) If I should begin at the archive, can anyone give me tips on how to use
the resources at the archive? Also, hours and days open, location, etc?
3) Does anyone have any other tips or recommendations for me?
Thanks in advance for your help! I appreciate it.

Kristin--This is a very very long shot, but we have Evers living in our
area who have said that when they come to America, the family name was
change to EVERS from---G�denmacher, also same area as nothern Oldenburg and
even into Ostfriesen area. Thought if you are looking and not finding
perhaps G�denmacher may be even with some of your dates of Evers. Barb
