The paper is devoted to the application processing procedure for granting wedding permission to the Jewish population after the introduction of the Familiant Law of 1726. The study concentrates on the written material of the administration with the competence for Bohemia. The agenda was in the competence of the Jewish Commission that was established in 1714 in connection with attempts to restrict the Jewish population. The issuance of the Familiant Law was accompanied by a number of measures, which were reflected in the written production not only of the Jewish Commission but of other offices as well. Examples of these documents and those directly related to the processing of applications for wedding permission, from submission to conclusion, document the whole process of implementing the law and the practical course of the approval procedure.
