The book "Juden in Hannover" contains a report about the cemetery In der Strangriede. The author Peter Schulze is the town archivist who is in charge of the Jewish history of the town. Perhaps it would be a good idea to contact him and tell him about the project. He has done extensive research, mostly on the cemetery In der Strangriede. Source: Juliane on Jewishgen.
