SourcesThe Mardorf (Hannover, Germany) records have not been microfilmed. All of this information from Germany is based upon the many years of research performed by Friedrich Dankenbring of Mardorf, as listed in his 1997 book (which he so kindly sent me in 2001), and as updated online at his Dankenbring website (http://www.dankenbring.de) and by email (DankenbringF@aol.com). I owe a deep debt indeed to all of his work, based on the examination of the Mardorf church books and the Mardorf community books (a second set of church books, also hand-written, and not always consistent with the church books).
