Does anyone know how one went about acquiring a
Familianten Number in the early 1800s -- other than
inheritance?

Local Notice Board? Family connections?
Itinerant pedlar? a matchmaker?
In the first half of the 19th century not only the
first-born sons were permitted to marry, but also
sons which have learned "ein nuetzliches Handwerk"
(an useful trade) - for example glazier. This individuals
have got a marriage license (special permit) without
a Familianten Number.
