Hello, It is definitely the Holle SE south east of Oldenburg. I found Hinrich Gode was born July 26, 1792 in Neuenwege, Kirchspiel (parish) Holle. His parents were: Johann Dirk Gode, Heuermann (tenant farmer) in Neuenwege, and Margarete Frese. What the book says is that in 1819 he was accepted as a citizen of Oldenburg. He may have lived elsewhere before, but, as far as I interpret this, he may also have lived in Oldenburg before, but without all the citizens' rights. Many "little people" like workers, maids, etc., lived in the cities not as full fledged "citizens" but just as "inhabitants".
