In Czech historical demography the study of nuptiality is usually based on parish registers. This articles infoms of posibility of using of serf lists. These offer a somewhat different perspective - the determining of the marriage rate for a period in which there were no statistics. However it is possible to reconstruct the number of inhabitants in a parish by means of inverse projections. An alternative means of attaining a rough estimate of the marriage rate is to work with the population documented in the serf lists. In this case the procedure is to relate the number of newly married to the number of all documented serfs in each individual year. These methods were applied to the parish of Horni Police on the one hand and the estate of Horni Police on the other. In the first case a rough estimate of the marriage rate was around 8-9 marriages per 1000 inhabitants in the parish per year. In the second case the marriage rate appears to be somewhat lower, with 6-7 new marriages per 1000 registered serfs per year.
