Marilyn Robinson asked about a divorced woman retaining her ex-husband's
last name or reverting to her maiden name.
Alan Shuchat's response is copied below.
In the case of my paternal grandmother this is what I know.
She was born in Tarnopol in 1873. She married in 1892 and divorced -- I do
not know when. In 1891 before that marriage her parents had a civil
marriage, and at the same time had my grandmother's birth registered with the
civil authorities. I found the civil marriage of her parents, the birth
registration and my grmo's 1892 marriage on JRI-Poland.
She remarried my grandfather in 1901 in Tarnopol using her maiden name.
