Marriage records on AGAD #galicia

Fred Huss
 

Hello Everyone,

Please help me understand the marriage records on the AGAD website.

I noticed that some of the records indicate official dates years after
couples have already had a number of children. Did Poland not require
marriages to be recorded prior to a certain date? Was some law passed
that made the recording of marriages mandatory even years after
religious ceremonies were performed?

Can someone please clarify?

MODERATOR NOTE: Many past messages on this list have dealt with
the issue of civil marriages in Galicia. To read them, search the
JewishGen SIG Archives
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~sigspop
for some of these terms: civil marriage - mother's maiden name -
registered - illegitimate / religious . One of those messages, posted by
Mark Halpern in October 2003, says in part, "More likely than not, if a
civil marriage was registered, it was after the birth of some of the
children. Why? Because the Austrian government regulated and taxed
civil marriages. Our ancestors therefore ignored the regulations and
married in a religious ceremony, which was not then recognized by the
Government. All subsequent births were then considered illegitimate by
the State. When parents or children had a legal reason to legitimize the
marriage or birth, then you find a civil marriage registered and the
birth record amended to show that the birth was legitimized. The
reasons were many but emigration and inheritance were two of the
reasons."

in which I asked if anyone was going to the Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn, and a

I forgot to mention that I am a member of JewishData.com, and the two names for
photos of monuments I'm looking for are not in that database, so I do need a
physical snapshot of the gravestones.

Re: bessarabia digest: June 04, 2013 #bessarabia

I was delighted to see a Jewish Lieutenant Colonel Of The Imperial Russian
Army buried in the Bendery Jewish cemetery.
It validates my find of my gggrandfather's Imperial Russian Military orders
and medals combined with jewish books, orthodox name, kippah, and other
items.
It also unfortunately, provides proof of these fairly important people are
ignored and do not often find place in Jewish recorded histories, for
example, is this gentleman to be found in any Bendery jewish community
history? I think not.
Could it be that Rabbies suppressed such achievements for much the same
reasons Russian Orthodox Jews deny the state of Israel? Or/and a pinch of
class warfare better aligning the Jewish narrative to 'liberalism' by
excluding the likes of the Lieutenant Colonel?
Food for thought.
