Note: In most cases, only the names of the groom and bride and the date of marriage are given in this index and in the corresponding St. Petersburg Archive microfilms. However, the register books of Rozyszcze, Wladimir-Wolynsk, and Lutzk parishes held in AGAD contain full marriage records which may be viewed in the FHL microfilms 2380026 to 2380029 and 2380036, and also online at http://www.agad.gov.pl/inwentarze/KsEA439x.xml For Tutschin kantorate, full marriage records are given in microfilm 2380034. These full marriage records contain information not in the index including ages, resident places, birth places, and parents' names of bride and groom. The recently added (November 2016) Rozyszcze entries from AGAD online scans contain the names of the parents and/or the previous spouse of the groom and bride and the ages of the groom and bride as well as clickable links to the online scans.
SGGEE Members - Please consider the advantage of using the Members Only search page where you can do partial name searches such as searching for "chu" in the middle of a name. The advanced search feature is not available on this page.
1. "Normal Search" is the default. It will find all occurrences of any given sequence of letters in a given search field. Thus, whether the sequence is a complete name or only a portion of a name, no matter where you seek the sequence, it will be found. For instance, if you type in [ jaeger ], you will find entries that include, "Jaeger, "Lobenjaeger", and "Geiger or Jaeger".
2. "Exact Match" will only find entries that include the exact letter sequence entered, and will not return any entry with additional spaces or other characters in the field searched.
3. There are no umlauts in the database (dotted vowels). Most of the umlauted letters have been replaced with ae, oe, or ue, but there are some names where the umlauted letter was changed to simply a, o, or u. You need, therefore, to do a search for both spellings of the name (ie., search for Konig as well as Koenig, etc.).
4. You do not need to enter data in all search boxes to find data. In fact, the more data you enter into the search fields, the fewer will be the results that will be returned. It is therefore possible that you will eliminate the data you seek if you narrow the search too much.
