Example of a Death Record in Polish

Translation of Death Record in Polish

 My research did not include any –at family members whose death record was written in Polish. An original record will be included on a future post. The following translation is from the original Polish.

 It took place in the city of Wilkowyszki, on December 30, 1866, [recorded] in the new way, at 2 P. M. Presented themselves: Dawid  Spurgat, farm-hand, 46 years old, and Karol Fajtusz, farm-hand, 40 years old, both of them residing in Rumaki, and they have stated that on April 4, [recorded] in the new way, of the current year, at 9 P. M. died in Rumaki Anna Karucka, 1 years and 6 months old, daughter of the unmarried Maryia Karucka, servant in Rumaki, and right now residing in Szelwy. After being convinced about the death of Anna Karucka basing on the statements of the above witnesses, this document was read to these presented themselves, and signed only by us, because they didn’t know how to read or write.– Priest O. Bergmann, the Pastor.

About suwalkigermans

I started family research in 1993. My first two books focused on my maternal grandparents. Both families came from Kreis Rosenberg, West Prussia, to Big Rapids, Michigan. I left the Spurgats from Wylkowiszki in the Russian Empire as the third book because of the difficult and challenging research it required. After I published the book in 2010, I wondered what to do next. I thought I might try to share some of my research with others and maybe at the same time, by going digital, someone would find me. When you read the comments, you will see that happened. The best part of all this is helping others.
