Title in the Language of the Records
Deutschland, Württemberg, Schwäbisch Hall, Inventuren und Teilungen,
This collection will include records from 1803 to 1925. These records are in German.
This collection includes inventories (Inventuren) and partitions (Teilungen) in probate records of estates located in Schwäbisch Hall, Württemberg, Germany. The use of each of these documents was precipitated by different events: the inventories by marriage and the partitions by death. These records are all arranged in a single chronological sequence.
Württemberg inventory regulations distinguished three different types of inventory: the marriage inventory (‘Beibringungsinventar’), contingent inheritance inventory (‘Eventualteilung’), and actual inheritance inventory (‘Realteilung’). A marriage inventory was supposed to be written up within a quarter year after a marriage took place. The contingent inheritance inventory was written up at the death of the first spouse in a marriage, but at this point the inheritance shares were not yet actually delivered to the heirs. The actual inheritance inventory was written up when a widowed spouse died, and included an inheritance division in which inheritance shares were calculated and distributed among the heirs.
