German SIG #Germany Re: Rittergutsbesitzer #germany


George Arnstein <george304n@...>
 

Ritter was a knight and his Gut (property, most likely a manor or even castle)
was his Besitz = Property. A goodly number of castles or estates were left over
from earlier times, thus Kilian Steiner bought the Laupheim castle during 19th
century, now seat of a Jewish museum or memorial.
There probably are other examples.
