Hi Tim,
Rötz has its own civil registry office. You may find the contact details here:
Unfortunately, they don't have an English home page.
The German translation for civil registry office is Standesamt (list item 9).
I don't know the situation in Bavaria, but I doubt they hold civil records older than 1871/72.
Maybe just ask them, they can't do more than saying no.
About the church records, it depends on the religious confession of your ancestors. In case they were roman-catholic, the church records are most probably held at the Bischöfliches Zentralarchiv in Regensburg (
