Louis Herz Family Collection
Scope and Content Note
This collection contains three generations of family and personal documents pertaining to the family of Louis Herz. Included are vital documents such as birth certificates, death certificates, and identification cards, as well as passports, death notices, school documents, and military papers. Most of the documents date to the end of the 19th century and to the first four decades of the twentieth century, although a few, including a passport for Salomon Herz, were created in the middle of the nineteenth century. Furthermore, some of the birth certificates, though issued later, reference the early and mid 19th century. Although much of this collection consists of official documents originating from the region near Hamburg, a subgroup of the materials pertaining to Louis Herz's son Franz Philipp Ludwig Herz contains several vital and military records from the Netherlands, as well as a Chinese passport. The subgroup of Louis Herz's papers includes a Russian passport and a permit to transport his deceased wife's body back to Germany.
