Place:Bröckel, Celle, Hannover, Preußen, Germany at WeRelate

WeRelate is a genealogy wiki, therefore place pages and their subordinate pages are structured in such a way as to be meaningful and helpful to genealogists. This is accomplished by defining a place as a geographic area with global coordinates at an approximate center and adding the historical context as desired.

WeRelate follows standard genealogical practice and FHL convention for European places which is to organize them based on their location in the year 1900 (See Place talk:Germany for discussion about this policy.) Places are organized first by Stadt (state); then, if applicable, by Preußen Provinz (Prussian province); and then by Kreis (district).

This page for Bröckel refers to BOTH the Gemeinde (municipality) AND the Kirchspiel (parish) that existed in 1900 and was located in Landkreise (district) Celle, Provinz (province) Hannover, and Freistadt (free state) Preußen, Germany.

Therefore this page is titled Place:Bröckel, Celle, Hannover, Preußen, Germany.
