Does anyone know since when Jews in Galacia were able to obtain the so-called Hematschein. I'm trying to determine when my great great grandfather left Galacia or if he was already born outside of his town of origin.
He was born BEF 1845/1846 and married an Italian Jewess probably from Trieste. There are traces of the family name found in Trieste, although family memory recalls him moving between Vienna and Alexandria, Egypt, without mentioning Triest. The first trace of the family's presence in Egypt is my grandfather's birth in 1866.
