The church of this parish is St. Martins-Church. There is also the chapel at Wense, which belonged to the former Gut Wense.

Part of the parish Dorfmark had to give way to the construction of the military training area in 1934. The population was resettled, farms had to be abandoned. These included Ober- and Untereinzingen, Achterberg, Wense, Fischendorf.

The OFB Dorfmark was generated from the database of the Soltau-Walsrode family database with people and families who are related to the Dorfmark parish. It is therefore not yet a complete village family book, but will be continued on an ongoing basis and will be kept as a separate OFB. The OFB Soltau-Walsrode data was originally a data collection by Mr. Wilhelm Hebenbrock.

In the alphabetical index one should consider the continuous evolution of family names. For example, check both 'Offensand' and 'Auf dem Sande,' Frieling and 'von Frieling.' Names may have a 'zum' 'zu' 'von' 'vom' or 'auf der' preceding them.
Often variations of family names were reduced to one basic form.
