* from Wikipedia: Familianten or Familianten Gesetz was the German term commonly used for the laws and the related record books which regulated the number of Jewish families in the Czech lands in the 18th and 19th centuries.


In the Austrian casualty list Nr. 599 14 July 1917 I found a reserve cadet Josef JAŠEK, 8th company, k.k. Rifle Regiment Nr. 13, who was born in 1892 and had reportedly been captured and detained as POW in the Russian camp of Troitzkosawsk (now Kjachta), Siberia.

His birthplace was Powel, Olmutz, Moravia. Powel [Povel] was a village at the southern outskirts of Olmutz [Olomouc].

In the parish register of Powel, I found this Joseph JAŠEK. His fathers given name was Franz JAŠEK, his mothers name Marianna nee STEIGEL. The subsequent notice says that Joseph seceded from the catholic church in 1922.

Since the first child Josef of your wanted Josef was born 11 July, 1923, he could have seceded in advance of his marriage. Since the secession was announced in the city of Olmutz, the marriage could have happened there... (his godparents were citizens of Olmutz).


here is the notice of his Russian detention


a map of the POW detention camps in Southern Siberia, edited by the Hamburg division of the German Red Cross in 1916, and the page containing the Troitzkosawsk camp.

Troizkosawsk (rather Troizko-Sawsk) was a Russian fortress just at the Mongolian Border. The detainees lived in new-built brick houses.





This document brings us up to October 1941.

The family was deported 19 October 1946 from POVEL which today is part of the city of OLOMOUC
