A reader has ancestors in the village of Sobotiste where my great-grandmother Anna (Kristofik) Dolinsky was born. He graciously sent me a digital copy of her parents' marriage record that he found on microfilm while researching his own ancestors. This is an example of a genealogical gem (or gimme?). It has the bride and groom with both parents and includes each mother's maiden names. Pretty perfect, no?
Translation: Pavel (Paul) son of Paul Kristofik and Anny Plesny, peasant farmer and Zusanna daughter of Jiriho Balaz and Kristina Sifel, peasant farmer. (roln=rolnik or peasant farmer, meaning they were tenant farmers and didn't own their own land. Colonus (in Latin) would mean they owned their own land).
