Since this is a bit technical I don't know if it's recorded anywhere but does anyone know in what order Hitler and his cabinet members were sworn in by Hindenburg? I have always been curious.

Hello John2!
I have no record about the swearing in. And your question is very good!
I think, that the the members of the Reichskabinett were swear in in the order, in which their names are published in the newspapers:
1. Hitler
2. von Papen
3. von Neurath
4. Dr. Frick
5. Schwerin von Krosigk
6. Dr. Hugenberg
7. Franz Seldte
8. Freiherr von Eltz-Rübenach
9. Hermann Göring
10. Dr. Gereke

At first the Reichsministers, than the Prussian Ministerpräsident and than the Reichskommissar.
