How a Jewish soldier in the Austrian army obtains the right to marry in the 1860s. #austria-czech

This is very interesting - and thank you for sharing the info - my own brick
wall has a few chinks in it now that we have hired a prof genealogist in CZ
who lives not too far away >from our MICHALEK ancestors - Belotin, Polom, and
Jesenik n. O. Moravia. We have been able to go back to an Anton MICHALEK m.
to Magdalena FIEBER - both of Belotin, then child Anton m. to Theresia RABEL
with child Anton (2-17-1835) m. to Magdalena SCHRAMM (7-27-1837 of Jesenik
n. O who produced my ggrandfather Josef. We have had so many false leads on
this Josef - but we have finally gotten documentation that he was born
9-15-1864 in Jesenik - however his parents were not married until 1868 - 4
years later - and the ceremony was in Vienna, Austria. We have not been able
to determine why the delay in marriage since both parties lived in the same
hometown and even shared the same house! So maybe, with your info, Anton
Michalek (the 3rd) was in the service and was not allowed to left before
they could get married - and she had to travel to Vienna in order to do so?
At least it might be another clue - as we 'think' and have been told that
MICHALEK could very well be Jewish origin.

If anyone has any insight into where I couldlook in Vienna - or any other
info - it would be appreciated.

thanks!

What happened when a Jewish soldier >from far-flung parts of the Habsburg
Empire [Bohemia, Moravia, Hungary, Galicia etc] stationed in Vienna in the
1860s, wished to marry? This question might be impossible to answer today
unless we unearth some "Rules and Regulations" in a military handbook about
just such a situation.
