JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Question regarding NYC marriage certificate #general


Leslie Weinberg <lbw@...>
 

I just obtained my grandparents' marriage certificate and I am puzzled. It
is written in longhand and appears to be totally written by the same person.
The second page should have signatures and it is witnessed but both names
and the witness name again seem to be written by the same hand. Is this
usual? In addition, although I had always been told my great-grandmother's
maiden name was Sheba April, the name I see written in Sheiwa Gran. The
letters are unmistakeable. I have never heard the name Gran, has anyone
else?
