Wanderbuch for weavers' guild

Posted: 29 Mar 2013 2:37PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Ebenstein
My g-grandfather and g-g-grandfather were both weavers from Kleineuhousen(I think that's how it's spelled). Does anyone know where the guild records & wanderbuchs may be kept - provided they still exist?

Carl Friedrich Ebenstein (b. 1826, imm. USA 1852); weaver
Johann Gottfried Ebenstein (b. aprox 1795, imm. USA 1851); master linen weaver

FYI - a wanderbuch was a book kept by an apprentice during his 'wanderings' as an apprentice. My information is that they were turned in to the guild at the completion of the apprentice period.
