  1. Wonderful that these documents are available on microfilm. Did you do the translation? That’s wonderful, too!

    And as a paleographer myself (in Spanish documents from the 16th through the 19th centuries), I have to say what a lovely document.

    I wish all the marriage documents I found had as much information in them, too. This is a trove!

    Hi Karen,

    Thanks for writing. Yes, I’m lucky that so many of the parish records for this area of Poland have been microfilmed. I try to transcribe and translate one record each day and post the image, transcription, and translation on this blog. In the nearly four years I’ve been writing this blog, I’ve probably posted translations of over 1000 documents, and I have a backlog of several thousand more!

    Steve
