9/6/2009 Marriage record of Vigdor Miedzyrzecki and Tauba Papier from 1871. I believe it is Russian (my Polish translator says it's not Polish)

I am especially looking for bride and groom's parent's names (and whatever else can be gleamed).

I have much higher quality copies that I can send directly.

Thanks in advance
