These pages for the Erbhofrolle came directly from the Rarfin Grundbuch and stand as a testament to why searching through all land records for a village is of particular importance. The Grundbücher for Rarfin do not seem to exist anymore. The books cannot be found in the archives. However, this book has a section of the Grundbuch that can be read through dating back to the early 1800s. Specifically, this leaflet contains the section for the Rarfin Grundbuch, Volume 1, Entry #3.

This document outlines the hereditary transfer of land from the first official owner, the Bauer and Gerichtsmann Johann Voigt, through to the final inheritor, the Bauer Herbert Voigt.
