JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Registration rules for birth certificates, marriage and death in Poland. #general


I want to complete my question or make some initial answers.

About marriages:

Here a religious marriage case followed by a civil marriage after a
delay of 5 years (1828-1833)

* See on
VM 49723:
the approximate translation does not formally establishes the
presence of a rabbi wich is precisly the groom's father or
(instead of the rabbi) of the groom's father.

Here are a religious marriage case not followed by a civil marriage
within a delay of 2 years(1891-1893)

* A revoked rabbi ; Read in the "Police Gazette", rewritted in
'Izraelita', Warsaw, 1893 december 1 and in 'Gazeta Warszawska',
Warsaw, 1893 november 25 ; and

Icek GRYNCAJG, rabbi of the 5th district of Warsaw, despite the law,
did not register the marriage contracted by Hindensa (Hindesa) nee
GESUNDHEIT ( GEZUNDCHEJT) on july 16, 1891. Insofar as he has been
already tried twice guilty to breaking rules on vital registers,
the police commander of Warsaw sentenced him to pay a fine of 90 rubles
and to be prohibited by binding order >from practicing the rabbi business.

The marriage record Nr 442 dated December 12, 1893 is the last where
Icek GRYNCAJG appears as rabbi. He was replaced by Abram ZIBENBERG appointed
since 1888. Icyk GRCNZEUG (Icek GRYNCAJG) had been appointed upon before

These two cases seem to demonstrate that the tolerance of the
authorities and the time given to formalize a religious marriage
have changed over time.
