Among the records I found in the microfilms at my local Family History Center on Saturday was the marriage record of Julian Milewski and Małgorzata Niedziałkowska. Małgorzata Niedziałkowska was the daughter of my third great grandparents, Antoni Niedziałkowski and Karolina Milewska. The marriage took place in the Roman Catholic parish in Krasne on 18 Feb 1862.

Maintaining the public register
Marriage records of the siblings of my ancestors, such as this one, provide me with the opportunity to trace these families forward in time and, possibly, connect with living relatives.
