Amtsrechnungen

The Amt (administration)was the local collection office for taxes. The population of a Amtsbezirk (jurisdiction) was obliged to pay yearly contributions to their sovereign lords. In the official books of the Amt are entries about ordinary people and their position of life. When somebody's house burnt down because of war, he had to pay less tax. If people had done something wrong, they were given Brüche (fines) or they worked for the Amt and were renumerated by it.
