I've been putting the Jewish BMD data >from 1822,23 of Koden, Lublin ,
Poland on a database. I found about 11 Jewish marriage banns posted in each
of these years, some of the marriages taking place in other cities. These are
of Koden residents. There is no mention of them in the indexes. If you do not
read the records page by page, you would never know they were there. They are
not even numbered. They have as much information as the regular marriage records.
Why would Jewish people go to the town clerks to record marriage banns? Do
Jewish people post marriage banns? Was this a common occurrence? Has anyone
else found these in their town's records?
