Re: Question over name after divorce/annulment #general

Recently, the question was asked regarding a woman keeping her married
name or going back to her maiden name after divorce or annulment in 19th
century Poland.

My grandmother was born in 1872 in Tarnopol. Her birth was not registered
with the civil authorities until 1891 so that she could be married that
year using her father's last name. At the same time her parents had their
marriage registered with the civil authorities.

Her marriage, I was told, lasted only about 2 years, ending in divorce.
There were no children of this marriage.

Several years later she remarried (my paternal grandfather) around 1900
in Tarnopol using her maiden name.

I have never seen the divorce documents, so do not know how the issue of
reverting back to maiden name was handled. RE: divorce documents -- do not
know if there was a "get" in addition to a civil divorce or vice-versa.
