I'm sure others are more knowledgeable. I, too, have done a fair amount off research in the Neuenkirchen area and seen the name Richter in the records.

Yet sometimes when they get married you might only see Heinrich Richter. This makes it very hard to connect the right names to the right family. Can somebody explain to me how the birthnames are worked out.Is the child named after the father first (when a boy) or do the godparents have a role to play? Often I see that the name of the child is the name of one of the godparents (paten) Who are usually chosen as godparents (paten). Is this always a brother or sister?
And / or friends? Are there specific rules that were followed? This seems to be the only way to connect families. I hope you can help me.Also I like to get in touch with anybody that researches the above named villages.
Greetings Rikus Kaijer. P.S. Sorry to have to ask in English. My German is not as good as my English. ______________________________________________ Hannover-L mailing list Hannover-L(a)...http://list.genealogy.net/mailman/listinfo/hannover-l
