Dear Lin

Oberhausen is a city near Duisburg in North Rhine-Westphalia. Holten,
adjacent to Oberhausen, was formerly an independent community but,
according to German Wikipedia, was absorbed into Oberhausen proper
in 1929. Old BMD records for the region (if there are any remaining)
will be held by the NRW Archive, Rheinland Section, whom I have found
very helpful. Their address is

Landesarchiv Nordrhein-Westfalen
Abteilung Rheinland
Schifferstrasse 3
47059 Duisburg

Good luck,
Peter Lobbenberg, London, England
