Hof- and Staatskalender (state calendars) of Oldenburg
In the 18th century the so called Hof- and Staatskalender appeared as a new publication in many territories of the German Empire. They are a product of the changing administrations, namely from the patriarchal form of government which was relatively understandable to a form of government which was bureaucratic and courtly.
The publications begin with a yearly calendar, giving information of names of saints, astronomical occurrences, court and church celebrations, and/or country sayings. The bulk of the information, however, belongs to the listings of officials, ranging from the highest nobleman to the lowest servant in a castle. Further lists of interest groups may be attached. Also of interest may be information about postal codes, currency and historical descriptions of regions and cities of the territory.
One can also find a listing of localities and determine to which administration or parish they belong. (usually at the very end of the book).
