Notes
a. Note:   1819 Census shows family in Reinstorf Death shows as: From Grit "Altentheil Hauswirt und Ehemann der Sophia Koppelmann in Reinstorf." But actually he was only Katemann. Hauswirt current translation is Landlord, but that is not what it means back then according to the Meck FAQ. http://www.emecklenburg.de/Mecklenburg/en/ms_faq.html He was a Peasant Farmer (Hauswirt) that was living on the farm in a room till death. From the Meck FAQ page, Altentheil means an extra room, or extra house on the farm. The successor, usually the oldest son, had to take care of him till death. Those farmer's places were entitled with different names in time: /Hausmann/, /Hauswirth/ is used in reference to /Hausstelle/. That was the common term during the times of serfdom and a little longer out of habit (after the Thirty-Years War till 1821/22, in parts until 1870/71). If the farmer reached an age where he could not stand up to the demands he went to the /Altenteil/. He moved in an extra room or an extra house on the farm and was /Altenteiler/ from then on. His successor, usually the oldest son, had to care for him until he died. The same rule applied when a strange person overtook the farm. The other sons that could not overtake a farm, lived and worked as farmhands (/Knechte/) for their brother. They could also work at some other place, then they usually lived as impecunious /Einlieger/. One could say that they lived for rent. That could be that way for a whole lifetime. The reward was paid in natural produce. They even received their clothes from the farmer. The /Tagel"ohner/ (day laborers), worked for a salary at a different place every day. This term was formed because of the establishing money economy - especially on knightly courts (/Ritterg"uter/). /Hauswirth/, /Hausmann/: official name for peasants, their land was usually only leased for a certain amount of time. In the 19th century (beginning 1822) they became hereditary lease holders. /Erbp"achter/: name for peasants with hereditary lease (meaning that the oldest son would receive the lease) held land, (lease holders) approx. 5 - 20 ha. After 1867 only hereditary lease was possible. Another old term for a peasant was /Kossate/. He lived in a small house (sometimes called /Kate/ = small shack, therefore the "profession" /K"athner/ is also used) and worked on a small piece of land (1/4 ... 1/2 /Hufe/?).
b. Note:   NF35
Note:   Marriage record shows Hans Albrecht from Gross Gischow mit Sophia Koppelmann from Reinstorf. This would mean he was born in Klein Belitz, moved to Gr Gischow and married, lived and died in Reinstorf.
