Re: Trying to decipher names

Please don't send messages like that. Jan does not, and cannot, send anyone restricted images. You have to go to the LDS near you to get the images. She did provide images in the past and was told by the LDS she could not do it, that she violated their agreement. She had a lot of problems (including her LDS account being blocked and her not being allowed to volunteer) and they monitor her facebook group and will close it if people ask for images.

For those of you on Facebook, there is a group on Facebook called Genealogy with Jan; Jan lives in SLC and works for the LDS Family center and if you go on Family Search and send her the certificate number and the names of those you are looking for, she will pull the record for you free of charge and email you a copy of the document.

    My guess is that Bertha Weinberg’s father was Bernhard…. 
    So I did a quick search. I found the 1940 census ( with  Jack Selig, wed to a Bertha, and their son, Bernard. Living with them were Jack’s parents, David and Mathilda and a cousin Karl.  Now, per the marriage record you found Jack’s (Jacob) parents were David and Mathilde, and Bertha’s father was Ben….

I am trying to figure out the names of the parents of a distant cousin of mine.  Her name was Bertha Weinberg who was born in Germany.  She married Jacob Selig in 1933 in New York.  I found the record at:

This site shows the names of her parents as:
Father's Name    Benshaw Weinberg
Mother's Name    Bertha Reaunsch...Eijr

It seems obvious that there was an error in transcription or in an OCR reading of the original.  Does anyone have any ideas of what these names might be, or where I could find a copy of the original document?
