This project seeks to collect all of the Jewish families from the town of Hříškov (Rischkau/Hrischkow) in Bohemia, Czech Republic.

Jewish families in Hříškov in 1783 (from published 1783 census, p. 248). Note that it is not clear how to map these families (some of which are using the old patronomic last names) to the much large set of families in 1793. Note that for each family, we simply get the head of household, whether married, number of children, occupation and tax paid [tax is not give here].

  • Salomon Entzl (married, 3 children); engaged in various trades
  • Adam Tausig (married, 4 children); horse trader
  • Adam Wolf (married, 3 children); butcher, engaged in various trades
  • Löbl Moses (married, 2 children); glove maker
