Temat postu: Mieczysław Wolski (1892)
Hallo, I'm searching for my great grand father Mieczysław Wolski and his ancestors. But I can't find him in the church books which are online here: ... &wo=SK

These are the details that I know about him:

Name: Mieczysław Wolski
born: 13.08.1892 in Kielce
died: 28.10.1937 in Tiraspol (Moldova)
his father: Romuald Wolski

He lived in Russia/Ukraine. In the town of Kotovsk he lived from the mid 1920s to the 1930s. I don't know when he moved from Poland to Russia. In 1937 he was arrested during the political repression and has been executed. He is also listed as a victim of political repression on this site: (Вольский Мечеслав Ромуальдович).

As I said, I searched the church books. But why can't I find him there although I have an exact birth date (from an official document). Can someone please help?

I also searched for Romuald Wolksi and found this: ... _date=1900

Could the one born in 1867 be the father of Mieczysław Wolski? I don't know. There is no source mentioned, no scan.

Thank you all for your information. Although it's difficult to understand everything with the crappy google translator. (I would be happy if you could answer in English, German or Russian when possible.)

Until now I was not able to register at (I'm not getting past the second step), so I cannot see,detail,95282,10 . Is there another way to see it?

Is Mieczysław Wolski in Korytnica born on 13.08.1892, or is it another date?
If it's the same date then I think it could be him.

The information about Romuald Wolski and his parents is intersting if he's my relative. But I'm not sure yet.

There is another information I can give you. Somehow a Wojciechowski family has a connection to my Wolski relatives. I don't know what connection it is - either they are friends or relatives. Do you see a Wojciechowski in one of the scans?

I was now able to register at and I read the page in the book. Yes the birth date is the same 13.08./25.08.1892. The name of the child Mieczysław is right and the name of the father is Romuald and it's not far away of Kielce. I didn't know that Mieczysław's second name was Tadeusz. But that's really interesting because Mieczysław gave his first son the name Tadeusz and his second son the name Romuald. I'm quite sure now that this is him. Very Happy What do you think?

Thank you Krystyna. Yesterday at night I finally registered at that page and now I'm searching in those books for more traces of my polish ancestors. I'm quite confident now, that all the above mentioned people are my relatives. There are some more questions that I have and I hope to get some more help.

Here is my first question:

As I said before, the Wojciechowski family is somehow connected to the Wolski family. In the following scan (no. 97) a person called Antonie Wojciechowski is mentioned, you can also see his subscription on that document: ... 93-100.jpg

Would you please translate to me what is written there about him (starts at line 5)?

Second question:

I found the death of Romuald Otkiewicz, who died in 1867: ... YjVkZDY1Yw

Is this Romuald Otkiewicz, father of Mar(y)ia Otkiewicz and son of Kazimierz and Krystyna? What was the date of death and his age? Is Stanislaw Otkiewicz his brother?

Thank you very much Krystyna!

There is also a death certificate of Stanisław Otkiewicz from 1868 which you can find here: ... DlkNTIyMmY

There you can see the name of Daniel, it's "Łuchi" I think. Must be 41 years, right? You said the age of Stanisław Otkiewicz on the other document was 61 (isn't it 65?). On this document (one year later) it reads like 76. Or is it 66? Is it a fault of the writer? It should be the same person I think/hope. What is the exact death date of Stanisław?

And then there is (on both documents) the place of birth that we can't really decipher, especially the first part: "Danidgród(ku) Gubernii Minskiy Powiecie Pinskim". I couldn't find a place called Danidgród but it must be in the area of Pinsk (today Belorussia). Do you have an idea what village/town it is?

Temat postu:
Thank you both! Yes I think it's Dawidgródek. Unfortunately the metrics at familysearch start in 1849. For me the 18th century and beginning of the 19th century would be interesting.

What do you think about the differences of the documented age of Stanisław Otkiewicz? Are the 76 years a fault (should be 66) or are there two Stanisław Otkiewicz with a different age?

In 1865 [no. 116] his age is 63: ... MGJmYzAwZA

In 1866 [no. 50] his age is 64: ... 47-050.jpg

In 1867 [no. 97] his age is 65: ... 93-100.jpg

[no. 56] ... YjVkZDY1Yw

Finally 1868 [no. 28] (his own death) he is "76": ... ZDcwODVkOQ

A fault?
EwaMolly - 09-12-2018 - 10:17
Temat postu:
no. 56 is 68 years.
His nephew or writer of the document made a mistake, that's common in death certificates.

Earlier documents should be here ... %20Library
Wolski_M92 - 09-12-2018 - 13:34
Temat postu:
Thank you for the link. Yes, I also think that the last document has a mistake. Good to know that it's common. In no.56 Romuald Otkiewicz, who died, is 68 years old. His brother Stanisław (line 2-3) is 65.

Another interesting fact:

There is another Stanisław Otkiewicz who also died around February 6th/7th 1868 and who also lived in Zgorsko but died in Piekoszów. The witnesses are others. His age was only 52:

[picture 47, no. 15] ... jJlNTc2OWY

So both died at practically the same time, are citizens of the same village, have the same name but died at different places and had different witnesses. Very strange. What do you think about it?

I have a new question:

I found a church record in the Kielce Katedra from 1843 where my ancestor is called "Wielmożny Gustaw Wolski" (416, line 2):,detail,95840,57
Does it mean he was an aristocrat? I didn't see this "title" with other people yet.
Krystyna.waw - 13-12-2018 - 17:00

Wielmożny is the courtesy title.
It doesn't mean Wolski was a noble man.

99,9% that's real title:) in this and others case
Wolski_M92 - 13-12-2018 - 17:17
Temat postu:
Yes, I also think so, that it's not only a courtesy title (maybe today?). If it was only a courtesy title, there should be much more people with this title in the books but I rarely see it. On another page I saw a big "W" infront of his name (and his companions) - is it an abbreviation for "Wielmożny"? e.g. here (461):,detail,95806,50

As you can see most people were not addressed this way.

If it's not only a courtesy title. What kind of people usually were addressed that way?

Temat postu:
Here you will find some explanation
Wolski_M92 - 13-12-2018 - 18:02
Temat postu:
Thank you, interesting article. So you think it was a Szlachcic? I saw a difference in time and place - I mean later in the 1860s and outside of Kielce (e.g. in Checiny) I didn't see this "Wielmożny" or "W" again. Did they lose their title or was it not common to adress people this way in later times or in small villages?

Also I saw several times the abbreviation "JP." infront of ones name, e.g. "JP. Ferdinand Hahn", see the above posted link. What does this mean?

I found an explanation for "JP" here:

JP means JEGOMOŚĆ PAN or JAŚNIE PAN (JP). And "W" stands for "Wielmożny" as I already thought. Is there a ranking for those titles? Is JWP the same as "W". Is JP a higher rank as W?

Edit 2:
Here is another site that explains the ranking a bit:

So a wielmożny in the 19th century was a szlachcic (sub-group "posesjonat"). What does "posesjonat" mean? And what does "właściciel przynaj-mniej jednej wsi" mean?
Krystyna.waw - 14-12-2018 - 14:32
Temat postu:
Polish nobility, law, rules, ranks, changes in time at territory etc. are too difficult for me, even in Polish language ;(

posesjonat - old word for owner of land or the property (real estate) in the town.
właściciel przynajmniej jednej wsi - the owner of at least one village, he owes one village or more.

Temat postu:
Thank you for the explanation. I often read "Dzierzawca" behind Wolskis name. Could you translate this to me? "... Wolski Dzierzawca Dobr w Czarnowie zamieszkaly". Does it mean that he owned land in Czarnow? Or did he lease land from someone else for himself? Or a totally different meaning? (no. 15:,detail,95546,4)

Thank you very much for your Polish lessons. I wouldn't mind being fluent in Polish so I could easier read and understand the metrics. But I'm afraid that won't happen. I'm already happy to understand and to decipher the most important facts. Smile

Another question:

In the following metrics it is written that Marya Otkiewicz is born in Drozgów (Gubernia Lubelski) (no. 50, line 10-11): ... 47-050.jpg

But I can't find such a village on the map. Do you know where this village is and to what church the people of that village went? I can only find a village called Drożdżów but that is not the same village, isn't it?

Is it maybe Drążgów ? It's in the Lubelski region.

Wolski_M92 - 15-12-2018 - 15:02
Temat postu:
Thank you for the links. I think Romuald Otkiewicz could be the right person, also his age is correct.

The name of mother Anna Nałkowska is right but the information about her age differs. In the act of marriage in 1837 (that I also knew about) she is told to be 21. So she should be born around 1816. In 1841 at the birth of Maria Franciszka Katarzyna (see the link you gave to me), her mother is again only 21 years old. How is that possible?

And Marya Otkiewicz, the daughter of Romuald and Anna, should be born around 1845, because at her marriage with her husband Boleslaw Wolski in 1866 she was 20 (no. 50: ... -050.jpg). As Marya died in May 1867 she was 21 years old (no. 90 ... Q0NTViNQ).

So I think Maria Franciszka Katarzyna (born 1841), that you found, could be Marya's older sister. But I don't think it's "my" Marya. In every document they say that she was born in Drozgow. And it's still strange why Anna was always 21.

Now I see that even the age of Romuald differs a lot. 1837 at the marriage with Anna he is 38. At the birth of his daughter Maria Franciszka Katarzyna in 1841 he is 41. So far so good - so he must be born around 1799/1800. But then his son Eugeniusz is born two years later in 1843 and there Romuald is told to be 33 but should be 43! (see 188: ... 4j6UahWQw) That must be a mistake in 1843, because in 1867, as he died, he was 68. So must be born around 1799/1800. Or the Romuald Otkiewicz in 1843 is another person.

Thank you Krystyna. I will check it.

The Otkiewicz's are originally coming from Dawidgródek (Pinsk Powiat) - at least Romuald and his brother Stanisław and their parents of course (Kazimierz Otkiewicz, Krystyna Czerwińska). So maybe that's an explanation why the name Otkiewicz is not popular. The Otkiewiczs' are driving me a little bit crazy ... I see that there is another couple with very similar/identical names: Raymond Otkiewicz and his wife Anna Nałkowska! Rolling Eyes Raymond and Anna are quite in the same age like Romuald and Anna. I could think, ok Raymond is Romuald and Anna is in both cases the same person. But who would call himself occasionally with different names? What do you think about these two couples?

From lubgens:
M 1837 Romuald - bachelor, ex-army officer (mate)
B 1839 Kajetan in Pawłów - his father Rajmund
B 1840 Rajmund in Biskupice - his father Romuald is lease-holder of the Siostrzytów
B 1843 Eugeniusz in Biskupice -his father Romuald
Their mother is always the same, so Smile))

Rajmund and Romuald are both of German origin, seemed strange and alien for old Poles, I suppose.
My grant...mother was baptised as Angella (not popular). After that she always was Aniela (Polish ordinary name).

Temat postu:
So maybe Romuald and Rajmund/Raymond shared a wife, why not.. if she was hot. Wink Laughing No, I still don't know what to think, it's all so weird.

I just discovered another thing: There is a famous Polish geographer called Wacław Nałkowski ( His father Michał Dionizy Jan Nałkowski (1820-1871) was a son of Michał Nałkowski and Zuzanna Hubryków (or Ubryków or Ubryk). And now comes a possible connection to my family tree: Anna Nałkowska (the wife of Romuald/Raymond Otkiewicz) was a daughter of Michał Nałkowski and Zuzanna. The problem is, I don't know the maiden name of Zuzanna, because it's not mentioned in the act of marriage between Anna and Romuald (no. 57: . Further I don't know if Michał Dionizy Jan had a sister. Does anyone know it? Here is a long article about Wacław Nałkowski and his family: . I see there another possible connection to Anna (see footnote no. 12): Michał Nałkowski died quite early and his wife Zuzanna married a second time, then moved from Lublin to Siestrzewitów (today: Siostrzytów) and lived there with his new husband Jan Hryniewicz and son Michał Dionizy Jan. No more children are mentioned. But Anna got at least one or more children in that village and her husband Romuald was lease-holder there. Only a coincidence?

Would you also please tell me where Anna lived until her marriage with Romuald? Can you see it in the act of marriage (link above)?

She was born in Lublin, lived in Krzywa Wola.
Wolski_M92 - 16-12-2018 - 17:37
Temat postu:
Thank you. That's quite an important information. I thought she was born in Krzywowola. Now that I know that she was born in Lublin it makes even more sense to believe that Michał Dionizy Jan Nałkowski and Jan Kajetan Nałkowski, who were also born in Lublin, are her brothers.

As I wrote yesterday, I suspected that Zuzanna Hubryków is Anna's mother. I now strongly believe that, because Zuzanna's second husband Jan Hryniewicz is mentioned in two documents from 1838 and 1839 at the death of Jan Otkiewicz (possibly a brother of Romuald/Raymond) and at the death of Anna's son Kaietan Otkiewicz. After 1839 Jan Hryniewicz is not mentioned any more. That's logical because he died in 1840. Would be nice if anyone could find his death metrics so that I could read if Romuald/Raymond is a witness. After 1840 I discovered a Zuzanna Hryniewicz in two documents (at the birth of Anna's and Romuald's daughter Maria Franciszka Katarzyna and birth of son Eugeniusz Leopold). That is Zuzanna Hubryków as a widow with her new name of her deceised second husband. Why should Zuzanna Hubryków (Nałkowska/Hryniewicz) be a witness/godmother of two children of Anna and Romuald if she hadn't something to do with them? I think it's quite clear that she must be her mother. What do you think?

What I now need to find is a birth record of Anna Nałkowska in Lublin (born between 1815 and 1821). I didn't find it yet. Does anyone have a link? Also a death record of Anna as Anna Otkiewicz is needed. She was living at last in Zgórsko (near Checiny). In 1867 she was still alive I think.

Concerning Romuald Otkiewicz I suspect that he had a second name Raymond or Raymund. Maybe that's an explanation why there is a Romuald and sometimes a Raymond/Raymund Otkiewicz in the documents. One of Romuald's sons is named "Raymund Gorgoniusz Adryan" - so he may have chosen the name "Raymund" after his own second name. Since 1840 I didn't see a Raymond Otkiwicz anymore only Romuald. Raymond appeared only in the years 1838/39. To be 100% sure that he's one person named Romuald Raymund Otkiewicz (born around 1799/1800), I need a birth record, that should be in Dawidgrodek. But I have no source where I can look for it. It should be a catholic church. Can anyone find it?


I found the act of wedding (1826 in Lublin) between Zuzanna Hubryków and Jan Hryniewicz here (no. 22): ... Mmjp5BeMLA

Is the name Hubryków right? Or should it be Hubryk?

no. 22
Marriage between Jan Hryniewicz, lieutenant of Ułan division, 39 years and Zuzanna Franciszka Hubryk Nałkowska (not sure which surname is her maiden one), for two years or more she is a widow, doughter of Ludwik and Barbara Hubryk.

The surname is Hubryk.

It looks like Zuzanna is, in fact, her mother or at least someone close to the family.

Edit: She also sign herself as Zuzanna Hubryk Hryniewicz in the act.

what does it mean polish surname for you? Does my surname is polish for you or not Smile
Look at lubgens - Hubryks lived in Końskowola in XVIII century. What does it mean ? It means only that they lived there at this time. Hubryks lived also close to Płock - use geneteka you will find them also in Ukraine, but in 1701 Ukraine didn`t exist Smile So is it a polish, ukrainian, russian surname ? Smile

Temat postu:
Very interesting, thank you for the information. I will go on investigating all these Hubryks. I found the name on Czech websites. So I thought maybe it could be Czech. Who knows where they came from in the centuries before 1701.

If your surname is Bereza, than I would say it doesn't sound typically Polish for me. It sounds more Russian, like берёза. But I'm not an expert of Polish names, of course. Wink

By the way. I'm also doeing research on other branches of my family tree. Another surname is Budziarek. It sounds Polish to me, but there are extremely few people with that name in Poland. I suspect that the original name was changed - they were Germans living in Poland. Do you think the name Budziarek is of Polish origin?

Ok, you're right, there are much more Budziareks than I thought. But I didn't see so many Budziareks outside that database. So it must be a Polish name.

Thank you for the translation. Very interesting! Did the streets in Lublin have no names? Only numbers, like in villages? The information that Michał had only one son and a daughter is strange. I know that he had more children with Zuzanna. So if that's true, most of them must have died until 1823.

These are their children that I found:

1. Magdalena Anna Nałkowska (born: 22.07.1814 in Lublin, died: 02.11.1873 in Kielce) - that's my Anna that I was looking for I suppose

birth no 194:
death no 368:

3. Maryanna Nałkowska (born: 15.08.1818 in Lublin, died: unknown)
birth no 236:

4. Jan Kajetan Nałkowski (born: 1819 in Lublin, died: unknown)
birth no 302:

5. Michał Dionizy Jan Nałkowski (born ~1820 in Lublin, died: 1871 in Lublin)
death no 419:
I didn't find a birth record for him, he is also not in the index at lubgens. But I know that he was a son of them from this site:

So if it's true that 1823 there was only 1 son and 1 daugher, all children but no. 1 and 5 must have died. Can someone find their death records and the birth record of Michał Dionizy Jan Nałkowski?

What means not very far for you? Today according to google you need to travel 3,5 hours by car from Lublin to Sukmanie. In those times that would be a day I think. Or is there another Sukmanie and Olszyny that is closer to Lublin?

There is another question I have concerning Wacław Piotr Ludwik Nałkowski. You remember this famous person: (wikipedia doesn't mention his third name Ludwik). Here is another website that mentions his third name:

It's known that he was born on 19.11.1851 in Nowodwór. At lubgens you can find him also with this birth date and place. But there is another record in 1865 in Lublin here (no. 172):
First I thought that there is another son of the same parents with the same name. But then I read in that record the exact birth date and place of the person born in 1851. Why? What is that record from 1865 about? Was it only the baptism of Wacław Piotr Ludwik Nałkowski who was born in 1851?

Unfortunately Gustaw Wolski was born around 1801, but the first record at genbaza starts 1810. At geneteka the results also start only at 1810. So for now I have no possibility to look further. Sad

Edit 1
If someone needs a detailed historical map of Wojewodztwo Sandomierski, I can recommend this one:

Edit 2

I have another question:

The father-in-law of Gustaw Wolski ist Severyn Mieszkowski. He was "Possessor (?) Starostwa Rudzkiego w Rudzie zamieskaly". I'm not sure if the word is really "possessor", there is a strange letter after "Po". So if the word is "possessor", what does that mean in that context?

1810 no. 19:

1812 no. 41 (line 5-6)

My understanding is, that Severyn Mieszkowski was the head (starosta) of the "Starostwo Rudzkie" and he lived in Ruda Zajączkowska ( ... 20.3130341 ). Is that right? (It's very helpful to look on the historical map, that I linked above. There you can see in the legend the starostwos of Sandomierz.)

Later since 1819 the "tilte" and name of the Starostwa changes. Then there is written (in 1827) ".. Naddzierżawców Starostwa Ruda Narodowa i wsi tegoz nazwizka zamieszkałych".

1819 no. 39:

1827 no 27.:

What has changed:
In 1810 he was "possessor (?)" and in 1827 "naddzierżawca".
Where is the difference?

In 1810 it was the "Starostwo Rudzkie" and in 1827 "Starostwo Ruda Narodowa". It should be the same place I think, but I cannot find a place named Ruda Narodowa there. Do you? What does that mean?

That's still confusing me.. maybe we are still comparing the things too much with modern times, for example the meaning of the word "Dzierżawa" or "Dzierżawca" which means "lease" or "leaseholder" today. To who belongs the land he is leasing, to the king, the state? When you look on this old map from 1791 ( you can see in the legend several "Dzierżawa"s listed (on the right side of the map). At the left bottom corner of the map you can see symbols for "Starostwo Sadowe", "Starostwo" and "Dzierżawa". So it seems to be a hierarchy. In that context "Dzierżawa" means maybe more than today?

I understand that Severyn Mieszkowski was the starost of that starostwo. Could the word "posesor" mean, that the starostwo was in his hands - under his control? Am I right or completely wrong?

I would like to learn more about Polish history and also to learn more about the szlachta (because as I see now practically all of my Polish ancestors are belonging to that class). Unfortunately there is very limited access to information in the languages that I understand.

I can't see "14.03.1854"

Thank you for the baptism date. The date "14.03.1854" you see at the beginning of the first line of the birth record "2/14 marca".

Thank you anyway.

Please look on this birth register in Latin: ... cc=1407440

Is the first colomn the baptization date or the birth date?

I see: Die 5ta 9bris (Ego qui supra) baptisavi
die 5ta = quinta
9bris = novembris

For me the last line on that document is interesting. I know that 10bris is December - so the date should be December the 3rd. Do you think it's the day of baptism?

Don't you see the word "baptisavi" or "baptisavit"?
I do Wink
Wolski_M92 - 09-01-2019 - 19:18
Temat postu:
Of course I see. Cool But I thought/hoped that maybe that date is not connected to the word "baptisavit".

Here is something more Latin zu read (no. 9): ... cc=1407440

Can you read what is written below the name of the father (Severyn Mieszkowsi)? And in the last colomn: "Domicillans in arce Szydlovecensi" = lived in the castle of Szydłowiec? Very Happy

Thank you for the links. I thought maybe someone of the people here knows it, because many of you already read a lot of those documents before. Wink

Have you ever heard of the name "Mora"? It's strange, because it seems to me that this name is not given at birth. For example one of my relatives is called Jan Nepomucen Felix Mora Mieszkowski. The name Mora was not registered in his birth record (see the link from yesterday above). But later he calls himself Jan Mora. Another person who I think is a relative too, is called Wojciech Mora Mieszkowski (I believe again that he didn't receive the name "Mora" at his birth). And I didn't see that name again.


I just received the information that Mora is a coat of arms:

So Jan Nepomucen Felix Mora Mieszkowski belonged to that coat of arms.

Could someone tell me what the following lines in that marriage act mean:

"urodzone ... z Pelagii z Mieszkowskich Wilskiey zony Stanisława Wilskiego za slubem cywilnym mieszkających, ktorego ojciec dla aresztu cywilnego stawić sie nie mogł"

"dla (because of) aresztu cywilnego'
areszt = arrest, custody not jail/prison
cywilny = civil code (not penal)

second possibility: civil not military custody

Could someone please answer me a few questions concerning the following marriage act? ... an=400.jpg

That's the marriage between Mikołaj Piątkowski and Marjanna Wolska in 1924 in Warszawa.

1. Are the parents of Mikołaj Piątkowski dead?
2. Was Mikołaj Piątkowski born in Moscow ("w Moskowie") or am I reading it wrong?
3. What is the name of the street where Mikołaj and Marjanna where living? I can only read the house number 5190.
4. Where Marjanna's parents Romuald and Kazimiera Józefa living in Czeladź (Powiat Będzin) or Warszawa? I think it's Czeladź.
5. Was Romuald Wolski a lawyer?

Last question: Does anyone know where I can search for birth records in Warszawa around 1924/25+? In the internet I can only find birth records until 1918. I searched the death records of 4 churches in Warszawa between 1924 and 1945 and couldn't find any child of the above mentioned couple nor their death.
Krystyna.waw - 19-01-2019 - 19:26
Temat postu:
1. yes
2. probably, hard to decipher
3. living together before marriage is the sin Wink
4. in Czeladź
4a. Piatkowscy: Warsaw, Twarda street. 5190 is the mortage number, not building.
Go to ... istoryczna
- rectangle on the map - nazwa, write Twarda, click
- down Twarda 1 - click
- right upper corner "zdjecia" - 1936
- Twarda 1 - click
- small numbers are mortage number. Look for 5190
5. Groom is the clerk in the bank, his father akrobata? I can't decipher

Hi Krystyna,

thank you for the link to the map. I found the house. It was destroyed during WW2 and later removed. I believe the couple was not living in Warszawa at wartime (didn't find death records of them or of possible children in Warszawa).

3. Yes it's a sin but nevertheless they lived in the same house. The address was the same as you can see in the document. Maybe they had separate appartments in that house.

5. No I don't think that Romuald Wolski (father of the bride) was an akrobat. He was an "adwokat". Wink

Adwokat of course. My mistake but they behave like acrobats so often... Wink

Maybe you are right but... ... arszawskim ... w_Warszawy

Temat postu:
I searched in these churches:

Warszawa-Śródmieście - Wszystkich Świętych (1924-1936)
Warszawa-Leszno - Narodzenia NMP (1924-1945)
Warszawa-Mokotów - Św. Michała Archanioła (1924-1945)
Warszawa-Muranów - Św. Augustyna (1924-1936)
Warszawa-Wola - św. Stanisława (1924-1942)
Warszawa-Wilanow - Św. Anny (1924-1934 .. stopped searching here, senseless)

I thought if they got some children in Warszaw then maybe as so often in those times one could have died. But no, I didn't find anything. But these were only death records. The best thing would be to search the birth records but there are no birth records after 1918 available. Does anyone know where I can find them?

I hope they left Warszaw before these tragic events and had another fate. Is it possible to have a look at the names of the identified victims?

Yes, I was already concerned that birth records are only accessable after 100 years. So in 2024 I can officially see births until 1924. That's bad. What is close family? Marjanna Wolska is a sister of my great grand father. Is there also a blocking period for death records?

Yes, 80 years
Close family = zstępni = descendants in the direct line, grandfather, grandgrand but not his sister or brother
Younger then 100 yrs acts family will find in Urząd Stanu Cywilnego and/or in the parish not in the archive.

Can someone please help me reading the follwing marriage act (no. 39)? ... &y=254

Gottlieb Schmitke (priest writes the name as “Szmyt”) married Luise Klatt in Mariampol near Aleksandrów Łódzki. I have difficulties to read the birth places of Gottlieb Schmitke and Luise Klatt. I think the birth place of Gottlieb Schmitke is Holendry Skarżyn near Kalisz. Do you read the same? The birth place of Luise Klatt is also a "Holendry" but what is the other word?

And there is another place in this certificate that you can find three times there, called "B..... Huta". I can only read the second word "Hucie" so it must be "Huta". But what is the word starting with B?
