Re: Looking for Information On Jacob Birath-thank You
No indication in the household record that Jacob Birath was Jewish. AD Hjo stadsförsamling AI:5 (1852-1858) Image 44 / page 30 (AID: v45954.b44.s30, NAD: SE/GLA/13209).
His daughter Anna Sofia is recorded as born 26 June 1849 and baptised 27 June in AD Hjo landsförsamling C:1 (1811-1860) Image 59 / page 109 (AID: v45946.b59.s109, NAD: SE/GLA/13208).
Jacob is recorded as born 4 Jan 1796 and baptised 5 Jan, parents Joh. G. Birath and Stina Hernberg of Åhreberg, in AD Kyrkefalla C:4 (1782-1836) Image 48 / page 89 (AID: v46395.b48.s89, NAD: SE/GLA/13300).
So it does not look like he was Jewish.
