 Births, Deaths, Marriages and Alegata (Marriage Supplements) 1829 / 1846

The table below provides details of the almost 600 entries in the database of Jewish vital records of Działoszyce in the holdings of the Jewish Historical Institute, Warsaw.

The 220 entries from Alegata records in this collection are of particular significance. Alegata files (also known as Marriage Supplements or Annexes) are a group of documents that form a more detailed record of the betrothal than the marriage record alone. In addition to the marriage registration, Alegata typically include the birth records for the bride and groom and banns posted in the synagogue(s). (If the bride and/or groom were not from the town where the marriage took place, the banns would usually be posted in the synagogue of their home town(s).) Other documents relating to the bride and groom or their parents may also form part of the Alegata. When a birth record could not be produced by the bride or groom, a protocol (sworn statement from witnesses including details of the birth) was created. Death records of a previous spouse are also included.

A unique aspect of Alegata files is the possible inclusion of the ages of the parents of the bride and groom and the profession of the father. This information rarely appears in civil records.

In this group of Działoszyce Alegata records, which end in 1846, the majority of brides and grooms are likely to have been born prior to 1826. This would pre-date the year when Jews recorded their life cycle events in strictly Jewish records.

Because of the small size of this Działoszyce collection, JRI-Poland created expanded indices and these may be searched on the JRI-Poland on-line database.
