Richard responded well to your Volhynia question.  

As for the Polish Archives:  Enter Grodziec in the place name box.  In this case, set the religion for "ewangelicko-augsburskie" and leave all the other boxes as "all".  There are other times when you also might like to select "all" for the religion as well.

alegata = Records that go along with marriage records, often containing the same info but sometimes there are extra tidbits.  Sometimes alegata exist for years where marriage records do not.

małżeństwa = Marriages

urodzenia = births

zgony = deaths

Hope that helps.
