Danzig Altschottland 1838-1846 marriages now searchable on JewishGen #germany #poland #danzig #gdansk

A small marriage register from the Altschottland Jewish Community (Danzig) covering marriages from 27 May [1838?] – 28 May 1846 is now searchable via JewishGen's Unified SearchGermany Database, and Poland Database. You may find it helpful to restrict your search by Town = Danzig, in addition to whatever surname you are looking for.

Altschottland is presumably the community to which the new couple belongs, but this is not explicit. Only one entry mentions a spouse belonging to another Danzig community, but many entries involve spouses from outside Danzig (see Remarks and Residence fields). Parents' names are, unfortunately, not given except for the father's name of a previously-widowed bride. All information has been transcribed. There are 70 entries.

This marriage register is file Da/753 at the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People in Jerusalem (CAHJP), and was acquired by the JewishGen Danzig/Gdańsk Research Division through the generosity of our donors. All transcription and proofreading was done by volunteers.

Several additional Danzig datasets will be posted online very soon. Others require varying amounts of proofreading or transcription and proofreading to complete. If you might like to volunteer to get Danzig records online quicker, please email me. We especially need volunteers who can read old German handwriting (Kurrent).
