They generally don't start until the formation of the 2nd Reich and 
are scattered in archives or still lie in the places where they were

No. As to where in Hanover? I would check the web pages under Niedersachsen for various archives.

For records younger then 1890 you need to show direct lineage or some 
valid reason as to why youy want this data. Older records should be 
availbale for a fee by writing to the particular archive where they 
are stored. Not always easy to know.

Where's the problem?
