Al Muth answered your query very well. I can add that most of the 1862 to 
1885 Rozyszcze marriage data in the VKP database comes from the St. 
Petersburg Archive duplicate records. The AGAD records are from the original 
parish register books, and Al is right that the Registration numbers of 
individual marriages are often not the same from the two sources.
AGAD scanned the register books and put the scans on microfilm. Each set of 
records on the website then corresponds to one microfilm. Knowing the years 
covered by the microfilm and the year and registration number of the record 
sought, one can make a guess as to where the sought record may be, and then 
iterate until it is found. It is not necessary to scroll through the entire 
Hope this helps,
