Lower Nobility of the Oberpfalz This book refers to the "Matricula Nobilium" by Bishop Adam Ernst Joseph Bernclau, copy 1765, at the Regensburg Archives. This book is a genealogy and history of the noble families of the Oberpfalz of Bavaria, but is only located in Regensburg. They do not allow copies to be made nor do they distribute any copies, and this includes the Mormon Archives. The contact does not personally possess a copy of this book. The contact possesses only a Contents list for this book. This Contents list contains the Diocese included in the book, re: Gesamtindex. It is a rare and little known book, and for this reason is very important to anyone researching the Oberpfalz noble families. The contact would be willing to field questions about it.
