I've sent a report to the moderator. Back on topic, on the United Synagogue I found a record of Rose Rosenblatt married to something else in 1903 but not the record of David Sharkey. But seeing as the US needs exact names and misspellings can occur I will keep looking.

My auntie has a jewish brother who works in a university so I'm going to see if I can enlist his help too. I'm also considering a holiday to Warsaw sometime next year (partly because it looks like a nice place to visit and me and the wife like city breaks) so maybe I can get some research done when I'm there.

Hi Alex,

The US database only covers the period 1880 to 1917 at the moment. I would therefore recommend that you email them about David's 1926 marriage.

Note 3 at the bottom of the page reads, "In some cases due to illegible handwriting, spellings of names cannot be 100% accurate. Consequently, to assist in searches a Soundex search system is utilised to give alternative options to a required search."

I have no doubt that Warsaw in the summertime would be very enjoyable - a lot of open-air street cafes/bars.
