Records from Zniesienie #galicia


Errol Schneegurt
 

I would like to acquire the record of the marriage of my Great
Grandparents that took place in 1902. This was the official record
of a religious marriage that took place prior to 1886. I have the
book and page number, and date.

I searched the RTR web site and found that the marriage records for
that year and town are in the AGAD archive in Warszawa, but could
not find how to go about ordering the document.

Can anyone tell me how I go about ordering this record? What are
the fees and how I go about paying for it?

Thanks

Errol:

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 performed 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 <sekretariat@agad.gov.pl> 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
records >from AGAD and combine orders.
