Re: Surnames separated by a small r #galicia

Recently Avrami Groll told us that all JewishGen Discussion Group and SIG group messages have been archives in this new system. I went to and searched for "recte." The "r" in your surname stands for recte. f stand for false. v stands for vel. You can also search for "false" and "vel." This has been discussed over the years relating to Galician record.

I am curious about surnames in the Galicia archives from Zablotow area, for example, Reischer r Kessler. What does the little r stand for? Could it be Reischer son of Kessler? I have seen this quite a bit in archives from the area. Thanks so much. Dorcey
