     Most of the church-books in the EZAB (Evangelischen Zentralarchiv
 in Berlin) have been microfilmed, and can be borrowed from the Mormons, 
 so that might not be the best use of your time. 

     The Geheimes Staatsarchiv Preussischer Kulturbesitz has government
 documents from Prussia, the Mormons have done some filming, but there
 is also a lot of unfilmed material. If your family was from Prussia, 
 and you know where, then that might be a useful place to spend a few
 days. I'm (slowly) writing an article for the SGGEE journal about a
 succesful trip I made to the Geheimes Staatsarchiv last year.
