In early 19th century Galician death records the column for recording
the name of decedent's father often contains the word that appears to
be "selbss" or "selbst". Does this mean that the decedent appeared
himself (or herself) with no one able to inform who the father was?
It could mean "the same".

So Moses ben Nathan's father would only be known as Nathan.
Just guessing.
