Józef Niedziałkowski was the brother of my maternal grandfather, Kostanty Niedziałkowski. This marriage was the first for Józef Niedziałkowski, but it was the second marriage for Józefa Pomaska. her first husband, Edmund Kołakowski, died in the Hospital of the Infant Jesus in Warsaw the previous year. The record states that both of the newlyweds were permanent residents of the Smrock Gmina. Both of the newlyweds were born in the Szwelice parish, Józef in Pomaski, and Józefa in Sikuty (called Pomaski-Sikuty in the Słownik Geograficzny Królestwa Polskiego).

This record agrees with the marginal notes of marriages in the copy of the Birth and Baptismal Record of Józef Niedziałkowski – 1897.

This is the duplicate copy of this record that was filed with the state and is now archived at the State Archives in Pułtusk, copies of which are available online on Genbaza. The original copy was archived in the Roman Catholic Archives in Pułtusk, copies of which were microfilmed by the Family History Center in Salt Lake City.

The two copies read exactly the same, but the original, which I wrote about on 11 October 2006, includes marginal notations that record the two marriages of Józef Niedziałkowski. The duplicate copy, filed with the state, does not include these marginal notations.

Pomaski № 2.
This happened in the village of Szwelice on January thirty-first / February twelfth in the year one-thousand nine-hundred six at nine o’clock in the morning. There appeared Teofil Niedziałkowski, forty-four years old, and Teodor Mosakowski, thirty years old, owners of the noble parts [of the village] and residing in Pomaski, and they stated that, in Pomaski, on January twenty-ninth / February eleventh of this same year, at eleven o’clock at night, Tomasz Niedziałkowski died, eleven years old, son of the married couple Teofil and Ksawera née Zygmuntowicz Niedziałkowski. After eyewitness testamony on the death of Tomasz Niedziałkowski, this document was read aloud to the declarants who are illiterate, and was signed by us.
[signed] Reverend Sennicki

My grandfather was only two years older than Tomasz, and he must have been greatly affected by the loss of his brother. Note that Teofil Niedziałkowski is described as the “owner of the noble parts.” Historically, the Nniedziałkowski family were landed nobility, although the concept of being a member of the nobility during this time period was probably not recognized by the government.

There is an error in the dates of this record. Because the record is double dated (the first date in each pair of dates is according to the Julian Calendar and the second date is according to the Gregorian Calendar). In 1906, the two calendars differed by 13 days. However, the date of the entry states “31 January 1906 / 12 February 1906” which is a difference of only 12 days. The actual date of death is correct: “29 January 1906 / 11 February 1906,” with a difference of 13 days. I have chosen to accept the date of 12 Feb 1906 as the date of the record (and presumed date of burial) for two reasons. First, the Roman Catholic Church used the Gregorian Calendar, which would have been more familiar to the priest than the Julian Calendar. Second, deaths are generally reported soon after the event, making it (slightly) more likely that the death was reported the next day, rather than two days later.

Since my grandfather was born in Ciepielewo in 1892 and his brother Tomasz was born in Pomaski in 1894, it is clear that the family moved between 1892 and 1894. The distance between the two towns is not great – it’s about 7.8 km (4.8 miles) by road. Today, it takes less than 10 minutes to drive between the two places. I don’t know why the family moved to Pomaski.

I had looked for my grandfather’s birth and baptismal record for a long time. Part of the difficulty in finding it is that I didn’t know where in the Congress Kingdom of Poland he was born. Various records state that he was either born in Pomaski or was from Pomaski. Other records state that he was either born in or was from Warsaw. As it turns out, although he did reside in Pomaski most of his early life before he came to the United States, and his grandmother (Julianna Gutowska) was born in Warsaw, he hiself was born in Ciepielewo and baptized in Szelków. The only way I discovered this was that his birth and baptismal record was indexed on Geneteka.

We make it known that in the presence of witnesses Wojciech Kołakowski from Długołęka, thirty-five years old, and Jan Głodkowski from Milewo-Gawary, thirty-five years old, owners of parts [of the village], on this day a religious marriage was contracted between Stanisław Zygmuntowicz, a widower, thirty-nine years old, born in Sokolów Zuregdy of Bazyli and Elżbieta, residing in Łaguny, owner of a part [of the village], – and Julianna Ruszczyńska, an unmarried woman, twenty-seven years old, born in Ruszczyny, residing in Chmielewo with her family, daughter of the married couple, the deceased Antoni and Katarzyna Ruszczyński. This wedding was preceded by three publications of the banns in the Parish Churches in Pałuki and Zielona on the thirteenth, twentieth, and twenty-seventh days of January in this same year. The newlyweds stated that they have entered into a prenuptial agreement before the Regent Filipowicz in Przasnysz on the twenty-ninth day of January of this year. This document was read aloud to the newlyweds and witnesses and was signed by us, the groom, and the witnesses, the bride declared that she does not know how to write.

I just found this record yesterday, and it helps break down a long-standing brickwall in my genealogy research! This record not only documents the marriage of my ancestors, but it also shows that my second great-grandfather owned land in Łaguny (he was owner of a part of the village). The record also provides new information: the approximate years of birth of my second great-grandparents, the places of their births, and the names of my third great-grandparents. So, all in all, this was a big find for me!

The record itself is somewhat unusual. First, it states that the couple had a prenuptial agreement (usually these records state that there was no prenuptial agreement). Second, the groom and the two witnesses know how to write their names (usually the record states that they don’t know how to write).
