Ms Botzhofer: I appreciate your response. Certainly I could be mistaken, but my informations came from old family stories/ sources. I also noted a book I found called "Map Guide to German Parish Registers--Kingdom of Prussia, Province of HannoverIII, RB Aurich & Osnabruck", by Kevin Hansen. The author then lists a long list of villages, towns, etc. that are mentioed in this book of churches and parishes to help with genealogical research. Among the villages and towns is "Rolle". It is possible the village has been absorbed by larger towns now, but it may well have been a viable community back in the mid- 19th century. At any rate, I am looking forward to securing a copy of this book to see if there is useful information.
