What is the benefit of using the format for an (in my usage case, privately-held) artifact over the church record certificate format? A good citation tells the reader how to find the relevant source. If it's stored in a box in your attic, the reader needs to know that if they are trying to find that document. Be aware that contemporary copies can differ. I ...

By "Removal" all that is meant is that Joseph Anslow left his membership at Brewood Independent when he moved to Tipton. This is not to be confused with the poor law system of removal which was a forced removal of poor individuals to their home parish. On a previous page there is someone who removed "To America". This is also not a record of legal settlement,...

You have the wrong administrative description of Grudziądz in 1879, which is possibly contributing to your difficulty in finding records. Per Wikipedia, "Following the First Partition of Poland in 1772, the city was annexed by the German Kingdom of Prussia. ...Until 1920 Graudenz belonged to the administrative district of Regierungsbezirk Marienwerder in the ...

I am speaking from my experience of Scottish records but I have no reason to suspect that the practice was greatly different in England. In Scotland, couples were frequently rebuked for ante-nuptial fornication when children arrived rather too soon after marriage. This would be recorded in the kirk session minutes of the parish (kirk session = minister and ...

Civil Registration was around in Mexico from 1859 and enforced pretty well from 1867 onwards. The couple could therefore have registered their marriage legally outside the Catholic church. Actually, post-1917 there should be a civil record to make the marriage legal, as described in the above link: With the separation of church and state in Mexico, ...

I would first caution: In searching for his baptism record, you could be searching for something which simply has never existed. Baptism was neither a legal nor cultural imperative in the 1860s in England. He might just not have been baptised. Many children were not baptised at birth, or even in the first year of life. Some were not baptised until their ...

The initials identify the minister who officiated. The first thing that struck me was how modern and consistent the handwriting looked, and how clean and spare each entry. And sure enough, the opening page for this book of NYC marriages has the note "copied from a volume labeled Record of Marriages ... copied by Sterling Potter 1902-3". As the officient ...

First, did he marry? If so, check his marriage certificate. Was the ceremony carried out as CofE, non-conformist, RC, etc...? That might tell you what registers you're going to need to check. Next, find a copy of the Philimore Atlas and Index of Parish Registers - it may be available in your local library, or, if you have a subscription, you can check some ...

You might want to join the forum at Genealodzy.PL which has a section for questions in English. On the site, they are also building a database of birth, marriage and death records at the site although I suspect that they are mostly from Catholic parishes.

It is difficult question because of the not well working archive system in Russia. I believe that such books are hold in the "Российском Государственном историческом архиве Дальнего Востока" in the Vladivostok. Their e-mail is rgiadv@vladivostok.ru Another option is State Archive of Kamchatskiy Kray: http://www.rusarchives.ru/state/kamchatskiy-kray/...

I don't think it reads "nauli". The two consecutive vowels look very similar, often the same, and sometimes more like an 'a' than a 'u'. Those letters often look very similar in handwritten documents. In addition, there is always a wavy line over the word in the linked example. This, according to the UK National Archives' guide to palaeography, generally ...

The State archives at https://www.arcinsys.niedersachsen.de/arcinsys/ provide a search engine that gives access to 478 entries when searching for "Barnten". You'll have to determine if any of this might pertain to your research time period, etc.

This answer covers the access to Ukrainian archives only. Two caveats: No online access. Unfortunately, most of documents (especially before 1919) are in paper form. Get ready to work with officials and archives. People don't speak English. Quite often, officials communicate in Ukrainian only. So you may need someone who speaks Ukrainian to proceed. ...

"Received into full Communion" is a formal way of saying the person was Confirmed in the church or "joined" the church. An infant Christening (Baptism) is a commitment made by the Baptismal sponsors (usually the child's parents) to follow the teachings of Christ when raising the child. Later, as an adult, the Confirmation process and ceremony re-affirms this ...

Parish registers in the Church of Scotland tend to be less well organized and structured than their counterparts south of the border in England. Particularly in highland parishes, sometimes no parish records survive at all from the eighteenth century or earlier. This is due primarily to the fact that the ecclesiastical laws pertaining to the maintenance of ...

No No He would have been only 22 when the war ended. Have you found a marriage, death or burial record? Who are his siblings? Look for his children's godparents. Find marriage/death records for godparents. Who witnessed the various marriages? If he was a notary, he probably completed some form of high school. Was there one in or near his town? Last resort - ...

I agree with your transcriptions and abbreviation interpretations. For the 3rd image, you have an unnecessary repeat of April and a missing phrase: Montag d[en] 23t[en] April ist Joh. Jost Schmidt eine Tochter getauft[,] hat gehoben[?] das Kind als Mutter Johannes Zekels[?] Frau vor ihre Schwester v[on] Kirchhain Joh. Wilhelm Schmitts Tochter und ...

Not to confuse you further, but are you sure you have the right village? There is another place of the same name, also in Wielkopolska - it currently belongs to 'Parafia św. Andrzeja Boboli w Poznaniu' (Parish of St. Andrew Bobola in Poznań). Anyway, I'd opt for emailing the 'suspected' parish - the priests should know the local history and are quite likely ...

They might be kept in few other places. Please note that I didn't do real research about that, just a quick google search. It's just a hint that might or might not lead to something. Unfortunately, the vast majority of Russian archives are not digitized, even catalogs with descriptions are not always available on the Internet. Instead of writing to archives ...

When you're using an Ancestry database like Connecticut, Church Record Abstracts, 1630-1920 which was created from a book or series of printed books, browse back to the beginning of the book to look at the title page and front matter.

I still think that it reads "braenobili" in this particular entry. However, as @erstwhile editor mentioned, it might mean "praenobili". In another entry (4. from the top) a "praenobilis D.na [Domina]" is mentioned. According to Karl Ernst Georges: Ausführliches lateinisch-deutsches Handwörterbuch. Hannover 81918 (Nachdruck Darmstadt 1998), Band 2, Sp. 1864. ...

I have had a bit of luck looking at geneteka.genealodzy.pl. It is a Polish site, but it includes records from when Poland was larger - and does have some Ukrainian & Lithuanian records. However, searching for 'Napadij' doesn't turn up any hits.

I contacted Archion about this and their answer is that the books I am looking for are in Sarstedt and not available in digital format. There are plans to digitalize the archive. However, there is no time frame set.

I think the baptism date has been taken from the second date at the top of that page which is the first one not clearly marked as being a birth date. They are in a column headed Chd [= Child] & Date. It seems like the next name does not have a birth date and that 18 Sep 1791 is intended to be the baptism date for all subsequent baptisms until the next ...
