[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Marriage Record

I extracted many German records for the Master Pedigree Database from 
Catholic churches in the Sompolno area and also Chodecz.  There were many 
marriage records along with births and deaths.  Sometimes there were fewer 
death records than expected.  It appears that if the Germans could not 
travel to a Lutheran church they didn't hesitate to marry in the Catholic 
church.  The record often indicated that they were "acatholic" (meaning not 
catholic) in Latin records or that they were "Luteran" if in Polish records. 
By about 1850, most people could get to a Lutheran church for marriages.
