My g.g.grandfather ...
... was serving
as a Chazen and had to have the entire community sign an
official paper saying that they would continue to support
him. ( I have this document if anyone wants to see it.)
I would be glad to get a scan of the document.
Unfortunately, such documents are very rare in the municipal
archives, although they were certainly frequent.

BTW: Since the Rhine became the border between Hesse and
Rhineland-Palatinate, all suburbs on the right side of the
Rhine were separated from Mainz. The stations in these
villages kept their names, so that the railway station is
still Mainz-Bischofsheim.
