Description: The document was found in with
some of my father's papers - He was executor of the estate of Fritz Held, the
youngest son of Carl Friedrich Phillipp "Fritz" Held. The document is,
I'm certain, Carl "Fritz" Held's permission to immigrate from Prussia. It
was initiated in Minden, Westfalen on 22 July 1856 and approved in Herford,
Westfalen on 9 August 1856. Fritz apparently requested to immigrate - many
from this area of Germany did not do so & just left.
