    I am trying to track down my grandparents marriage license from 1915.
    Does St Casimir have records from that time. I am not sure which church my grandparents (both came from Poland) werte married in or even if they married in Newark. I found a prayer card in Polish from 1925 and that is reason I am asking.

    I belong to Saint Casmir’s Roman Catholic Church; my parents, my brother were married in this church. My brother and I were both baptized here as well. This is the first and only church that my grandparents (God rest their Souls) came to when they first came to this country from Poland 50 years ago. One thing hasn’t and I pray will never change: That is the sense of unity and welcome when you are here. I don’t know if I’m alone in this, but all my worries and troubles to disappear while praying and worshipping here.
