Re: Advanced question on family name adoption lists in Baden #germany #records

In some cases Rosenthal copied the 1809 list and in others the 1815 list. Rarely did he copy both. The 1809 lists only contain ages, not dates of birth. The 1815 lists usually contain the dates of birth at least for children. They may not be correct which can be seen by comparing young children's birth dates with those on birth records.

When i was at the Generallandesarchiv in Karlsruhe, I looked at some of the records which Rosenthal did not copy.

One more thing, some of the microfilms of these records which can be seen using DigiBaeck at the Leo Baeck institute website were microfilmed very light and are difficult to decipher.
