[OL]Need research tips

Hello List,

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

Dear Mrs. Van Scoy,

You should first go to the Oldenburg state archives.
Schweinebrueck is part of the church parish Zetel.
The vital records can be read there.
Marx and Etzel are neighbour parishes, but in Ostfriesland. You would have to go
to Kirche, Landessuperintendentur, Julianenburger Str. 23, Aurich or to
Hannover, Kirchenbucamt, Hildesheimer Str. 165/167 in order to read the

Sincerely yours

Falk Liebezeit
