This index includes marriage records from parishes enumerated here. Be mindful of the dates of inclusion because you will not find entries for marriages in this index outside of the given date range.

The Polish Family Info Marriage Index offers an additional search option. You can now search for just a bride, just a groom, or both genders. This can be useful to avoid getting too many irrelevant matches if you search using only a surname-- particularly a common surname. The default is Both genders but the other options are Brides only and Grooms only.

The other search options are explained here. The most common (useful) options are already selected but you can change them.

Marriage Index

Enter information into any of the fields below. It is not necessary to fill in both fields. In fact, doing so is only recommended when the name is very common.

exact match: enter the name exactly the way you want it found (e.g., Adam will find ONLY Adam).

match first: enter the first part of name to be matched (e.g., Adam will find Adam, Adamik, Adamowski).

wildcard search: enter any part of the name (e.g., Adam will find Adam, Adamik, Adamowski, and Hadam).

Provided you are using "match first" or "wildcard search", you may use the % character to represent any number of letters and the _ (underline) character to represent one specific letter. Additional explanation here.
