What are the sources of this information? The Harger book doesn't get into as much detail as what is here. Just curious. --SHLAMA 04:44, 28 June 2006 (UTC)
Do you mean the bit on the general history or the section on people or the bit about the partitions or the bit about the rulers? - Nomadic1 08:00, 28 June 2006 (UTC)
The people section is from Swenna Harger's book. I'm interested in where the general history was found, and the info on rulers. My family is from that region - Aalt Piccardie and Georgsdorf. Thanks! --SHLAMA 09:34, 28 June 2006 (UTC)
The stuff on the states and rulers is nothing new on the internet. This site has many of the German states: ellone-loire.net/obsidian/regindex.html. There are several others out there too (with more and less), but Obsidian's is good. The other stuff about I got was from looking up about the more specific history of the County of Bentheim. Kind of a shame when most of it ended up about Tecklenburg, Lingen, Rheda, and Steinfurt instead (which I got laszy and didn't write much about). I don't have my sources for that though. - Nomadic1 22:34, 28 June 2006 (UTC)
