    1885 Russian marriage record

    I have had very good luck in finding translations for old documents here before. This is a Church record of Marriage from 1885 It is of my great Grandfather's marriage. I understand most of the document but somethings escape me. What is this a reference to " zascianek (a szlachta settlement) Borowy"?????????
    I know that Joseph is the grooms father but what exactly is the mother's name? Anna Nanartowicz?????
    Could you please help a English speaking amateur translator with this old document? Adam is my Great grandfather and Josef is my Great great grandfather who was born around the 1830's-1840's. This record comes from Nacha Belarus back when it was Russia.
    Thank you

    Анна Нанартович looks ok. Last names "Ненартович" and "Нанартович" do really exist.

    "Крестьянъ Адама Шведа, юношу лѣтъ 24 изъ застенка Бороваго..."
    "Peasants Adam Shved, young man of 24 from Borovoy zastenok (= Borovoy Village)..."

    (Borowy and zascianek are corresponding Polish words, they can confuse Russian speaker.)
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
