This book covers two areas, the Province of Schleswig-Holstein in the Kingdom of Prussia with 7,670 places, as well as the Grandduchy of Oldenburg with 2,948 places. Most of the 10,618 places are towns. This volume was principally written to help family historians resolve where their family may have gone to church and left vital records behind that may be seen today. This is the fourth of a series covering all of Germany. The series is still in production. Even the smallest places are listed in this series – some with as little population as one person! These places are as of about 1870. If the place existed prior to that date, it will most likely be listed. If the place was named after that date, the chances drop.
