11/24/2013 4:28 PM What are the uniforms? Three are in dark, three in light. Is that important? They all have three stars on the collar. What does that mean? View the post with its 3 responses

30085 Translation - Polish

11/24/2013 4:28 PM This file is an 1851 marriage record for my ancestor Moszko Wajsman in Wlodawa, Poland.

As best I can tell with my very poor Polish, it looks like he and his parents were living in the nearby village of Kulisyn(?) and that he was born in the village of Chutize(?) in the district of Chelm.

I cannot find either of these places on the map and will be very grateful if someone can correct my reading of the document, and/or identify one or both of them.

thanks
