Czernowitzer Deutsch

Original text by Emanuel Hacken, edited by Ruth Glasberg Gold

Dear Czernowitzians and all List members,

A brief introduction to the following  subject of „Das Czernowitzer Deutsch.’ 
By sheer serendipity I stumbled upon a rare treasure. A few yellowed and typewriter-written pages with lots of crossed out sentences and words, as well as handwritten additions.

These pages were given to me by Dr. Hacken(deceased) during an international gathering of Czernowitzians in Miami in the  winter of 1990.
Thinking that it might be of  interest to our members, I took it upon myself to retype the text into a clean version and share it with you.
I hope you will enjoy and laugh a little.

The Keeping of Metrical Books in Bukovina

Ostjüdische Zeitung, Czernowitz, December 29, 1929

The Keeping of the Metrical Books is Transferred to the Municipality. The City Hall issues a public note to the effect that both the keeping of the metrical books definitively is transferred to the municipality and the civil marriage becomes mandatory, effective January 1, 1930. In accordance with the stipulations of the law on the keeping of the metrical books, all births and deaths have to be declared to no person other than the keeper of the metrical books appointed by the municipality. Equally all marriages have to be contracted by the marriage registrar of the municipality. No religious act (circumcision, burial, marriage) will be carried out without agreement of the keeper of the metrical books.
