Ordinance #33548, issued by the government of the Kingdom of Bohemia [Present-day Czech Republic]: “Following the highest ordinance of April 15, 1786, no Jew shall be granted authorization to marry, unless he can provide evidence of having received a normal course of schooling; in addition, all Jews under the age of 16 on the above date shall be made to undergo normal schooling. […] Every Jewish petitioner shall be instructed to supply documentation from the school or county where the supplicants are to receive their education, or, alternatively, a certificate from the same authority showing that he was already able to enroll in school before the above-mentioned order took effect. In order to reliably ascertain the age of the petitioner, school teachers must be allowed to inspect the circumcision registers, so that the years of the petitioner’s eligibility to attend school may be computed accurately.“
