This marriage on April 21, 1732 says something close to:

Johan Heinrich Räcker aus ??? Ahlse?

und Anna Metta Sellmann aus Wets
(Family is know to be from Wetschen and I am familiar with that area.)

I need help with "Ahlse" !!

Is the s an f, or is there another way I have read it wrong? Ochlse?

"Ahlsen Rheinberg" is the closest thing I can find to that area where the marriage took place, Diepholz. If that is it, would the records be on Archion?

Thanks so much!!

Hi,
yes, it might bei Ahlsen-Reineberg, you can find the records on archion.de under Hüllhorst (cf. http://genwiki.genealogy.net/Ahlsen ), https://www.archion.de/de/browse/?no_cache=1&path=189038-572551-572896&cHash=4e3faf3c29f394895a04a54742c783c7

I haven't checked the records, wishing you all the best for your research,
Jérôme

But this name, or variants of it, appear in the region of Emsbüren, http://www.online-ofb.de/famlist.php?ofb=emsbueren&b=R&lang=de&modus= , and on ancestry you can even finds this family at the end of the 18th century ( https://www.ancestry.de/family-tree/person/tree/72109917/person/410027367447/facts )in Ahlde, Emsbüren, which sounds similar (although I agree that I would have read the entry as Ahlse, not Ahlde, too, but who knows ...)

But no records from the beginning of the 18th century for this family on ancestry as far as I could see, but that doesn't mean anything of course. I haven't found the church records on archion yet, though, unfortunately.

Best regards,
Jérôme

I just saw that the FDS indexed the church book, no matches for Räckers, Räders, Räkers or similar, though, https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3AR%C3%A4*~%20%2Bfilm_number%3A473487
If course there might be transcription errors or missing transcriptions.
But as noted above, the family (with variants Räkers, Reekers, Räker etc.) does appear in the region of Emsbüren. I even found a (female) entry in Ahlde at the end of the 17th century. Catholic, though, baptized in the catholic church of Emsbüren according to https://gedbas.genealogy.net/person/show/2787689

Best luck with your research,
Jérôme
