Guth, Ignatz [ b. 16.4.1852, Hovorčovice, Bohemia - d. 28.1.1898, 322/I, Prague, Bohemia ]
Ignatz was the youngest of 10 children of Josef Samuel and Magdalena (née Guthová) Guth. Like his brother Moritz he appears to have been born in Hovorčovice. In life he was a traveling merchant or salesman, and according to his obituary was a member of "Die Ortsgruppe Prag des Vereins Reisender Kaufleute Oesterreich-Ungarns" - that is, the Prague Local of the Merchant Travelers Association of Austria-Hungary. He married Katharina Raudnitzová in Prague on 25 June 1876. Together they had at least 8 children. Ignatz is appropriately listed in the Prague census as Hynek, the Czech variant of that name. It's worth nothing that the family recycled the names of their deceased children. While this is not an altogether uncommon practice at the time it's a little unusual that they did it twice, for Oskar and Arthur, the first two of whom died as toddlers. Ignatz died at home at 3 a.m. from a heart condition, and is buried in the New Jewish Cemetery at Section: I B Row: 6 Number: 22. The gravestone gives his Hebrew name as Isak as one would expect.

Joachim Karl was the eighth-born child of Josef Samuel and Magdalena (née Guthová) Guth. Although he was born Joachim Karl, some documents show he simply went by Karl. In life Karl was some kind of business owner, or the managing director of someone else's business. At one time he may have been a tailor. He married Henriette Schifferes at the Klausen Synagogue on 7 July 1872, and together they appear to have had only one child, a daughter, Erwine. Sadly Erwine died at only 10 years of age.

Guth, Josef Samuel [ b. 5.6.1807, Beleč 37 (okr. Tábor), Bohemia - d. 19.10.1870, 960/II, Prague, Bohemia ] Police Conscription Document
Josef is the only known son of Salomon and Rosalie (née Sineková) Guth, and the middle of 5 identified children of the couple. Curious the middle name of Samuel that appears in some records; for male children the middle name usually correlates with the father's name, which in this case would be Salomon. It could be that Salomon was more commonly known as Samuel, especially if his own father was called Salomon - an extreme rarity in contemporary Jewish families, to be sure.

In any case, Josef married Magdalena Guthová (she from either Kamýk or Kamenice - not totally clear), apparently no relation. The sole available familiant record gives a union date of 21 August 1835, which appears to be the consensus date rather than the actual wedding date. Together the couple produced at least the 10 children listed here. For sure the couple and 7 of their (at-home?) children lived in Prague from at latest 1865, around the time of Magdalena's death, until Josef passed away in 1870.

Guth, Julius [ b. 9.11.1866, Košíře (Prague)?, Bohemia - d. 6.1.1921, Rokycany, Bohemia ] Police Conscription Document Obituary, Prager Tagblatt
Julius was the eldest child of Salomon and Sophia (née Taussigová) Guth, apparently the first of at least ten children belonging to Julius (and one of only two from Julius and Sophia). The available records indicate he was born in Košíře, now part of Prague 5. The other possible location is near Olomouc, but I consider that unlikely as the family seem to have stuck around the area west of Prague until they finally settled in the city. Julius married Bertha Fantová and together they had at least 3 children (it's not clear if Franzi was a boy or a girl, but it looks like maybe it was a boy who ultimately perished in the Holocaust). The family settled in Rokycany where Julius later passed away. His wife survived him but was later killed during the Holocaust. Currently there are no available Jewish records from the time periods relevant to Julius and his family.

Markus was the seventh-born child of Josef Samuel and Magdalena (née Guthova) Guth. In life Markus was a banker, and the chief of his own firm "M.J. Guth & Co." Apparently the firm was involved in currency exchange, and from the obituaries we can see that Markus ("M.J.") was a noted member of the Czech Exchange Bureau Society - "Das Personale der Böhmischen Wechselstuben-Gesellschaft" in German, the lingua franca of the time in Prague. Markus married Emma Steinová on 27 May 1869 in Prague, and they had at least 9 children. Markus died at 3 a.m. at home from complications of esophageal cancer. It appears he was buried in the New Jewish Cemetery.

Guth, Moritz [ b. 31.5.1850, Hovorčovice, Bohemia - d. ? ] Police Conscription Document Police Conscription Document 
Moritz was the second youngest of 10 children of Josef Samuel and Magdalena (née Guthova) Guth. According to the available census record, Moritz was born just outside of Prague in Hovorcovice, but the sole police conscription record disagrees and suggests he was born in or near Mladá Vožice, like the rest of his immediate family. In life Moritz was a clothier, or clothing trader. He was married twice, first to Antonie Ledererová on 6 March 1881 at the Klausen Synagogue, with whom he had three sons and who died at only 38. Moritz remarried to Theresie Ecksteinová on 16 April 1893 and they had at least one child, a daughter. Although his first marriage appears to have taken place in Prague, it looks like Moritz was a resident of Mladá Vožice until that time.

Police Conscription Document Police Conscription Document Police Conscription Document Police Conscription Document Police Conscription Document
Richard was one of six children belonging to Simon and Julie (née Utitzová) Guth. In life Richard was a businessman. He married Thekla Karpelesová, quite remarkably 6 years Richard's senior, on 4 March 1894 in Prague. Together the couple had at least four children. The Prague census record reveals some substantive information on the family. First, that son Arnošt died in World War I in a field hospital in "Bielitz" - that is, the Silesian town of Bielsko in what is now Poland - from wounds sustained on the front lines. Separately, at some point a Karel Karpeles lived with the family while they were in Prague; Karel appears to be described as the illegitimatre son of Thekla, as "syn nemanž." is written in Czech next to his name. It also indicates Karel was a convert to Catholicism.

Son František's 1927 obituary indicates Richard and Thekla lived at that time in "Teplice-Schönau" in the Sudeten Czech north.

Guth, Salomon [ b. c.1765, Mladá Vožice?, Bohemia - d. 10.5.1833, Mladá Vožice?, Bohemia ]

My fifth-great grandfather and earliest Guth family relative about whom we have any measure of detailed information. The available familiant record gives his father, curiously also named Salomon, and his mother as Rebeka née Kohn. Judging by the same record, it's likely he was the first-born son of the couple. Salomon married Rosalie Sineková (also spelled Synek - one of the few purely Czech surnames in my entire lineage) around 1789, and they had at least 5 children.

There is a Salomon Guth family with wife Rosalia and daughter Mariana in the 1793 Czech Jewish census book (Pg. 357, as published), which lists the family as living in Oldřichov, just to the northwest of Mladá Vožice. That's the only Guth family in the entire book. Probably this is a match - Mariana would be our Marie (eldest), and the approximate age fits her marriage and offspring.

Salomon was the second son of Josef Samuel and Magdalena (née Guthova) Guth. There are two birth records on successive pages in the local Jewish registry which give different birth dates - one says 18th and the other 21st April. In life Salomon was a traveling businessman or trader. He first married Sophia Taussigová on 4 Feb 1866 in "Wrasch," apparently Vraž u Písku near Písek. She must have died or they had a divorce around 1869, as Salomon then married Aloisie (sometimes referred to as Elisabeth/Alžběta in other documents) Taussigová on 6 January 1870 in Železná, just ouside of Beroun. Not clear whether the two Taussig women were sisters, but it's likely as they are both listed as from Neuhof. Otherwise Taussig is a common surname. Altogether he had at least ten children, some of whom were apparently born in Třtice or Nové Strašecí, some 50km northwest of Prague, at least one in Hýskov near Beroun, and another apparently in Kosíř which is now part of Prague 5. The family clearly moved around, but at last settled in Prague, evidently in Karlín. Salomon died from the results of arteriosclerosis and is buried in the New Jewish Cemetery at Section: XII Row: 13 Number: 13. Curiously the grave gives his Hebrew name as "Shalom."

Simon was the eldest son of Josef Samuel and Magdalena (née Guthova) Guth. He was a businessman or salesman, and worked and lived in Prague. He married Julie Utitzová on 3 September 1865 also in Prague. Together the couple had at least six children, all but one of whom were boys. Simon died from pyaemia, a painful septecaemic condition characterised by abcesses in organs. According to the obituary he was bured in the Olšany cemetery.

Guthová, Jany [ b. 18.3.1841, Beleč 37 (okr. Tábor), Bohemia - d. ?, Bohemia ] Police Conscription Document Police Conscription Document
Jany was the fourth-born child of Josef Samuel and Magdalena (née Guthova) Guth. I believe "Jany" is short for Johanna, as the birth record is written as "Žany" with a correction from the Z-caron to a J. This suggests she is one and the same as the Johanna that appears on her parents' Prague police conscription record, linked above. According to her brother Ignatz's obituary, she was married to Bernhard Kohn. This is supported by one available Prague conscription document, also linked above, which gives their marriage date as 15 September 1861, evidently in Erlauf, Austria. Their first child, Rosalie, was born in Pacov according to the conscription record (apparently Bernhard was from Černovice, in the area of Pacov), but all subsequent children were born in Prague. It appears the family moved frequently between Old Town proper and Josefov in Prague.

The available records point to a total of 8 children, but we have as yet identified only 7. It's worth noting that the birth records for Ottilie and Emma (the two youngest children) list their respective naming ceremonies as having taken place at a "Kinderlasshaus" and "Waisenhaus;" that is, at an abandoned children's home and at an orphanage. Sofie's naming is listed at "Waisenhausstraße." Don't know what to make of that.

Katharina was the fifth-born child of Josef Samuel and Magdalena (née Guthova) Guth. The only additional information we have concerns her marriage to Adolf Deutsch, however no Prague census or police conscription records appear to exist for the couple, neither do I see any relevant information in the available Viennese records.

Guthová, Marie [ b. c. 1795, Beleč? (okr. Tábor), Bohemia - d. ?, Bohemia ]
My fourth-great grandmother, and evidently eldest child of Salomon and Rosalie (née Sineková) Guth. Marie married Markus Pick of Pacov (in Pacov?) in about 1820 - Markus's familiant record gives a date of 10 June 1820, which we can reasonably assume to be the consensus date. Due to missing records we do not have conclusive birth information for their five so-far identified children, but the connections are clear and we have complete basic biographical data on the family. It's noteworthy that the consensus date is 5 years after the birth of their first child. While this doesn't invalidate any of the connections, the practice is not especially common in this family tree. More broadly, however, the familiant system was quite restrictive: there were people who deliberately flauted the decrees or made physical moves so as to be left mostly alone by the authorities, who enforced the regulations mostly in and around bigger cities. In any case we don't know much about Markus's immediate family, but it would appear he was second-or-later born - that would be the most likely explanation for the gap between their marriage and the birth of the couple's children.

Please see Markus Pick's description (link below) for more information on that large branch of the family tree.

Guthová, Sara [ b. 9.3.1810, Beleč 37 (okr. Tábor), Bohemia - d. ?, Bohemia ]
Sara appears to have been the fourth-born child of Salomon and Rosalie (née Sineková) Guth. As is too often the case with persons from this era, there is scant available information on her life. A birth record for an ostensible son Josef Lustig makes clear that Sara married a Salomon Lustig sometime around 1829. Josef's birth record is the first we see in the Mladá Vožice Jewish registries for Sara and Salomon.

After Josef's 1830 birth, things get a little murky for Sara. The 1843 birth of a son Joachim is contained in a separate Jewish registry from the area. That record lists Joachim illegitimate, and the father is expressly omitted from the registry. Curiously the same record also appears to indicate he was sixth born. The record is very detailed about Sara's lineage, so we know this connection to be correct. I believe this is another case of the familiant regulations rearing their ugly head; perhaps the first set of children were "inadvertently" recorded in the registries as legitimate, and later children were marked illegitimate. The familiant laws were in force until about 1848 so techincally the authorities would be within their rights to act on a discretionary, arbitrary basis. As it stands I see only these two children in the available registries.
