State Archive for Lower-Saxony at Hannover (Germany)

Niedersächsisches Landesarchiv - Standort Hannover is responsible for the records of the highest authorities of Lower Saxony, as well as for all other offices of state administration in the former government district of Hannover. Up until 1978 (when district reforms took place), the Archives were considerably more extensive, because they included all three former governmental districts of Hannover, Hildesheim and Lüneburg.
