Hello Ingridtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I've volunteered with JRI/Poland for years. While your great grandparents' ages
are a little young, but not impossible (and possibly not exactly correct), what
the record you see is the record of their civil marriage. They had Judka almost
certainly after they'd had a Jewish marriage. The law allowed "legitimization"
of the child when the couples had the state recognized wedding. My GGP had
their civil wedding in Galitzia after their first 9 or 10 children were born,
following a Jewish marriage. They were Hasids and certainly weren't having kids
without being married...
