I believe the term "false" was used for situations
where there was only a religious marriage.
I am guessing that "recte" therefore means that there
was a civil marriage.

Dear Genners:
from the several responses I had re: meaning of the word "recte", it
is
Latin for, 'properly', 'correct', 'right way', 'right', 'actual',
'truly',
'justly', and 'in accordance with the laws imposed by the
Austro-Hungarian
Empire, the parents (in my case) of my grandfather, were not married
in a
civil marriage, but probably married in a ritual marriage'.

Thank you,
Katie
