Two documents sharing the same information about Elisabeth’s birth.  The document on the right is the certificate issued to her by the government in 1932, now the one on the right is a 1939 extract certified by the Pastor of the church.  This second document was required by the Nazi government as part of the papers establishing one’s identity and origins.


These are a wealth of information.


Elisabeth Louise Eiselt was born on the 10th of April 1907 in Steinschönau at House Nr. 443.  She was baptized on the 28th of that same month in the Roman Catholic Church in Steinschönau.  Her father was Ignaz Eiselt, a glass painter who was born on 1 Nov 1861 in Steinschönau to Ignaz Eiselt of House Nr. 74 and his wife Johanna *** of House Nr. 282.  Her mother was Anna Tampe who was born on the 29 Nov 1871 to Wenzel (?) Tampe of Marzdorf’s House Nr. 17 and his wife Maria Anna Tampe, daughter of Franz Anton Tempa of Marzdorf House Nr. 6.


This is the death certificate for Elisabeth providing a death date of 23 July 1948 in Linz a.d. Donau.  The certificate was issued eight days later by the local government official.  It provides additional information about Elisabeth’s husband at the time of her death – Josef Schaller.  You can also see that it references the birth certificate entry.


Here are the four generations as a result of the information Titti and Stephanie received.
