Lineage Village Books
Here is a listing of all village lineage books available for Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony). These books are treasure troves in as much as a researcher has looked at various documents to establish a genealogy of an entire village from the beginning of record keeping. The authors are listed, the publication year is given. If the information is not available online, the books can be ordered. There is also the possibility that the book is available at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. Check the Library catalog by searching via place search or keyword search. Information from a book can then be retrieved through the familysearch support system at http://forums.familysearch.org
