Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Meaning of an abbreviation written on Polish-language birth and marriage registrations #galicia

Ed Friedel <edwardfriedel@...>


I've noticed that on several Polish-language birth and marriage
records recorded in Tarnow >from 1909-1912, the name of the
witness/rabbi/mohel is usually followed by the abbreviation "m.p."
or "m.p. w Tarnowe". Would anybody know what this means? A
permanent resident of Tarnow?

Thanks very much.
