Looking for the marriage record for Levin (or Leopold) Rosenzweig and Bertha Abelitzky in Sweden about 1862.
WikiTree profile: Bertha Rosenzweig

Unfortunately, I don't have any leads on Bertha's possible marriage record. But I was looking into her uncommonly-named (score!) Abelisky/Abilistky/Ablisky relatives as a kind of lateral move to help you find your way backwards.

She was in Elmira, NY, Pennsylvania, and Cleveland, OH, before settling in Colorado. I see that there were Abelisky families living in several of those places. I would build out the trees from those folks and look to newspaper records to flesh out their relationship to Bertha and one another. Chasing any of them backwards could possibly lead you back to Bertha in some other place or archive that doesn't seem obvious right now.

Thank you, Marion, for taking the time to look. We have lots of information about Bertha and her family (see her profile), but are just missing a few pieces of information such as a confirmation of her marriage to Levin Rosenzweig. Good sleuthing, anyway.

The parish information in ArkivDigital says that Mosaiska Församlingen i Malmö was founded in 1873. Before this the Jews in Malmö sorted under Göteborg - where the annals still have not been scanned. However, since Copenhagen was closer and more convenient, they may well have married there.

Looking at the excerpts sent to SCB 1861-1863 they did not marry in Göteborg, Stockholm, Norrköping or Karlskrona.
