From an article in Rootsweb Review, quoting Jan Hart (12 July 2006, Vol. 9, No. 28)
Directory of several towns in the Rheinland state of Germany, including lists of births and marriages from the 1600s - 1800s. Some files have 15,000 records! Use Control-F (find) to search each set of records.

"The area covered is quite large, mostly west of the Rhein (Rhine) River up to Koblenz, Bernkastel, Bitburg, the Mosel Valley, over to Trier, and south toward the Saar." http://www.genealogienetz.de/vereine/wgff/trier/Familienbuecher
