"It took place in Warsaw, in the Povenkovsky fifth precinct, in the office of an official of the civil status of non-Christian confessions on March 11 (24), 1916."
I would appreciate help in clarifying  "Povenkovsky".
I have not come across that location name before.
This seems like a bad attempt to render the Warsaw district of Powązki phonetically - in 1916, Powązki was the 5th district (cyrkuł).
