I am searching for marriage taxes or fees that had to be paid in 19th century Rhineland under Prussian rule.
Some marriage register records will have official stamps in them documenting that a fee was paid, and how much it was. I expect these fees varied from place to place and over time. Furthermore, different documents associated with a marriage might also have different fees. Below is an example of two such stamps (on two different pages) from an 1822 marriage in Gauersheim, a village near Kirchheimbolanden in the Pfalz.
