Addresses for most of the above-mentioned parishes can be found on the Osnabrueck Diocese webpage - Gemeinden im Bistum Osnabrueck but please note that parishes do not do family research. When parishes in Emsland receive such requests they normally forward them to the Katholische Familienforschungsstelle (The Catholic Family Research Facility) in Meppen. You will save yourself time by directing your requests to the Meppen facility to begin with instead of writing to the parish.
