The record you want to acquire is the Jewish civil marriage of your
great grandparents. This is a separate marriage ceremony performed by
a Rabbi employed by the Austrian Government to register Jewish civil
marriages. This is, in effect, a second religious ceremony usually
perfomed years after the original "religious" ceremony. The 1902 marriage
was not an official record of the 1886 marriage, but a second marriage
ceremony that was recognized by the Austrian Government.
You can order this record directly >from the AGAD Archive by writing to
them at <email@example.com> in English providing all the information
you have about the marriage including year, book and page number and ask
for a full cost quote and the method of payment. AGAD will likely respond
in a week or two in English (other Archives usually respond in Polish).
AGAD will request payment by bank (wire) transfer, which will cost US
residents >from $25 to $50 depending on your bank.
If you would like to reduce the unit cost of these bank fees, you should
order more records or find others interested in ordering recrords >from
AGAD and combine orders.
