An Erbbuch contains the inheritable properties (Erblehen) of a city/village, their owners, rights and obligations. The Erbbuch is also known as Grundbuch, Erdbuch, Landbuch or Salbuch. An example of an Erbbuch can be viewed at  museum-digital. This particular book contains also all villages and their landowning population from 1642 which belonged to the administration of the magistrate in Jerichow.

were concerns re. Flurregelung (allotment regulation). The goal was to eliminate harmful commonly held user and property rights of agricultural land. Separationen made property free of unilaterally and mutually disadvantageous servitudes. It changed the status of the land from commonly held to segregated properties. The goal was to separate the single owner from the community, hence the name separation. Separation could be partial or across the board, depending whether parts of properties were to be eliminated or all property owners were to be relieved of existing conditions. Such actions created altercations and new changes in property owning. When a Separation was a general one, usually new measures for useful roads and water supplies were created. If allotment regulations were in place a better division of allotments through apportion or consolidation according to the interests of property owners took place. The documents kept for such transactions show the names of the participants, the description and size of the property/ies, description of the piece of settlement and the settlement amount.
