===3. Research in Church and State Archives===
Church records or duplicates may have been gathered from the local parishes into central archives, either by the churches or the state. Older records are frequently given to these archives for safekeeping. Some gaps in the church records of local parishes could be filled using these records. Archives might be unable to handle genealogical requests, but they can determine whether they have specific records you need, sometimes perform very brief research, such as just one record, or they may recommend a researcher who can search the records for you.
*You can e-mail archives and ask whether they have records for a parish. Also, you should inquire whether they provide research services and what their fees are. '''You can communicate with the archives in English.'''
