Reply with quote

Here is the place where you can upload scan or picture file of your ancestors church record handwritten in Polish with request of translation it into English.

Before asking for help our volunteers try your hand at understanding the records. It is not that hard as you might think and the satisfaction from doing it by yourself may be great Smile . There are special instructions and guidelines you can use described in this post: Deciphering and translating Polish records on your own.

However, if you still have serious problems with deciphering the record or part of it, or just want to make sure that you understood the handwriting correctly follow the instruction below.

If you are a member the PolishOrigins all you have to do is:

1. Click on 'postreply' button at the top or the bottom of the page (see attached print screen).

2. Scroll down to the 'Add an Attachment' section.

3. Click 'Browse' or 'Choose your file' button there, find your picture file with record to translate in your local computer disk, and finally click the 'Add Attachment' button.


Your file will upload in a few moments and will be visible in your post after you click on 'Submit' button.

You can also add a comment to your request for translation in the 'Message body' field above the 'Add an Attachment' section.

Important: size of files can't be larger than 2 MB. (You can read more about adding files to messages in our Forum here: http://forum.polishorigins.com/viewtopic.php?p=373#373 )


Added in Jan 2014
We have a big request to you please cut and upload only the parts of document you ask to be translated instead of whole large pages. This way you will make our volunteers translators job easier to their tired eyes. They will have larger resolution of the scans and will not have to waste their time for searching the part of the record you are interested in.

To edit scan/picture files you can use one of the many desktop softwares (like MS Office Picture Manager or freeware Irfanview http://www.irfanview.com/ ) or free online services (like http://pixlr.com/editor/ or http://www.freeonlinephotoeditor.com/ ).


If you want to pay back to translators and pay forward to the whole community see also the announcements: Indexation of Translations and Donations for translations.

Gilberto,

The text is indeed very hard to decipher, and also the family description is not clear.

Hi, this is not a record, but the back of a photo that I would love to have translated please. I know that the writing is light, so it might be difficult. It was written to my grandmother from her niece Helena, identifying the people in the photo. I appreciate any help I can get with this, thank you.

I'm attaching my great-greatgrandfather's marriage record which needs a verification where he was born before they went to Poland. Would you please take a look at it?

Translated:

It did happen in Wyszogrod, in the year one thousand eight hundred thirty-first, on the first of February at three o'clock in the afternoon: we made it known, that with the consciousness of Michael Hartbener (?) fifty-seven years old, and Krystyan Szulc thirty years old, farmers living in Drwały, not relatives, but knowing well the newlywed persons, it has been concluded a religious marriage between John Frederick Schmidt, a young man born in the village Knibes (?) in the economic area of Darmstadt, in the State of Wirtemberg, son of Bartholmiej and Bozyna Mozer, spouses Schmidt, and now residing in Drwały, farmer as well in Drwały, thirty years old, and Marya Malgorzata Schwabe, the eldest daughter of Jan Jerzy and Barbara born Szock (?), spouses Schwabe, farmers in Drwały, born as well in Drwały, living with her parents, twenty-two years old.

The marriage was preceded by three announcements, on the sixteenth, twenty-third and thirty-January of the current year in the church of Protestant community at Wyszogrod. Nevertheless the verbal permission from parents has been sought, conscious of the act of marriage. No objections stopping marriage had happened. The newlywed Spouses stated they did not sign a prenuptial agreement.
This act was read to the present and witnesses, the witness Krystyan Szulc and Fathers of the newlywed signed it.

Signatures:
Krystyan Schultz (the signature differs from above: Szulc is the Polish writing of the same name)
Bern?? Schmidt?
Johan Gnorg Szfwab (the signature slightly differs from Szwabe, I guess Johan George)
Ksiadz Ignacy Boerner Pastor Gminy Wyszogrod

Two evidences attached.

"where he was born before they went to Poland"

Somewhere near Darmstadt, but you have to go to the Germany from that time.
Today Darmstadt is in Hesse, not Wurtemberg, but pre-Germany was changing a lot over centuries.

It's not easy for me, I do not speak German.

I googled a little, seeking history of Darmstadt and pictures
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/History_of_Darmstadt

Found quite interesting article about German emigrations from that time, http://library.ndsu.edu/grhc/history_culture/history/bessarabia.html

Hallo Elzbieta,

thank you very much for your help.

There are 2 things which confuse me: "Knibes" and "ekonomii Darmstadt" (I thought that was "Dornstadt", which is near Ulm). I'm not sure if Darmstadt was ever part of Württemberg. I looked at your links, but I couldn't find proof yet.
There is a town Kniebis near Freudenstadt, which is about 180 km from Dornstadt and a little over 200 km from Darmstadt away. That would be very far away, wouldn't it? I would be happy to hear your opinion.

Best regards,
Helli
