[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Seeking Records from the Evangelical Augsburg Consistory Council

In a separate email my 3rd cousin sent me privately on this topic discussing with Rose the idea was raised that, if you know the church where August and WIlhelmine got married then a copy of the divorce record should be included in the alegata of the church where they were married. Lublin has a number of these among the alegata and they all seem to arrive from the main consistory in Warsaw. In general the only information you will get is their names, the date of their marriage, and the date the divorce was finalized.

If you want to learn more about alegata go our Lublin project page dealing with this. I should add a little section covering divorces but those are very rare.

 with the source for
 those records so quickly.
 Many, many thanks to you... and to everyone on
 this listserve who have
 been so remarkably
