“Gubernium-Ordinance #55662” (Gubernial-Ordinance’)* [Present-day Austria, Czech Republic; Kingdom of Bohemia/Austrian Empire]: “When applying for a marriage license, Jews are to [bring along and] submit their conscription forms of the last conscription. Since it has happened numerous times that Jews who wish to get married attached their old conscription forms to their marriage applications to attain permission […] and so in order to limit such nonsense/mischief, it is ordered that every Jew who wishes to get married is required to turn in his latest conscription form, which — should the applicant be hiding from enlistment, will be noted in the correct column and that one is not to rely merely on copies from the conscription books as those will not have this necessary overview.” [Researcher’s note: *A Gubernium was the political administration of a provincial district in and around Austria, Germany, and what was once known as Bohemia etc.]
