Błażej Chodkowski was my 1st cousin, 5X removed.
Although this record states that Błażej’s first wife, Józefa Grzybowska, died on 09 February 1830, she actually died on 17 February 1836. Note the double dates throughout this record. The first part of the date is calculated in the Julian Calendar and the second part is calculated in the Gregorian Calendar. We use the Gregorian Calendar today.
