Joseph and Marianna are my great-great grandparents through my mother’s father. After writing to the Poznan project, I have their marriage record from 1851 as as well as a few others. I will post these marriage records here with transcriptions as time permits. Here is a copy of the marriage record.

I transcribed this record, from a church in Gluszyna, Poland in order to glean a few hints off the record.

Here is the literal transcription (in Latin) and my rough translation is in italics

No. 4
Annus et dies benedictiones sacerdotalis: 11a Februarii — The marriage took place February 11, 1851.
Nomen sacerdotis benedictionmen sacerdotalem administrantis: J. Maciejewski The priest who officiated the marriage was J. Maciejewski.

Nomen, praenomen et cognomen sacro ritu coniunctorum. Sedes conditio et professio, et nomen benedictio sacerdotalis en ecclesia vel domi peracta sit. The names/personal names and family names of those who wish to be joined in the sacred right of marriage before this church.

Dies dispensationum, si qua forent: nulla Were proper dispensations made in case of annullment due to form (Null, first marriage)

Nomen, conditio et professio testium qui benedictioni sacerdotali adfuerunt: Name and identification of witnesses
Andraes Plensler, frater, sponsi Andraes Plensler, brother of the groom
Polanus (? name) Wagner, avunculus, sponsae, etc. Polanus Wagner, uncle of the bride

So, we now know a few more tidbits about the Plenzler family:

  • Joseph had a brother named Andreas (who, if he emigrated to the US, would likely have changed his name to Andrew)
  • Marianna had an uncle with the surname of Wagner, meaning her mother’s maiden name was Wagner.
  • It is possible that Marianna’s father was widowed. Consent was specifically mentioned that it was “father of the bride.” Unfortunately, this record does not mention the parents’ names.
