Re: Need help interpreting marriage record from Gesher Galicia #galicia #records


This has been answered several time in the past.  r stands for recte, meaning false, i.e.,  needing correction.
You can search the Jewishgen Discussion List Archives or do a Google search for recte.

In the marriage abstract below, which I copied and pasted from Gesher Galicia, what does the "r" signify after the bride's surname (Lea Frenkel r. Lustig)? Another abstract for the same couple lists the bride the same way but names her mother as Malke Käffig, not Lustig.

Many thanks.
