On November 14, 1790, 220 years ago, in the village of Murczyn, parish of Gora-Znin, Bydgoszcz, Poland, DH's great-great-great-great grandparents, Mathew Kruszka and Anna Kurzawianka were married.
1790, p. 12
On the same day as above (14) in the present month (November) after the banns were read August 24, August 31 and September 7 and no legitimate impediment was detected, I Brother Patricus Kurcihi joined Mathew Kruszka, young man and Anna Kurzawianka, maiden of the village of Murczyn. Witnesses were Matthew Sawka and Paul Malah.
(Not a word for word translation.)
Twenty-five years, 11 months and 17 days prior to that Mathew's parents, Clement Kruszka and Marianna Pytkowna were married. The translation for this record is as follows:
Year as above (1764) 28 day of November, I performed the marriage between Clement Kruska, widower and Maryanna Pyktowna, maiden, of the town of Gora.
Unfortunately, I was never able to procure an earlier marriage record for Clement, or for that matter to give his first wife a name.
