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

Sally, thank you for the explanation. Now a follow-up question: how do you record these names in your family tree? Do you use the "correct" name (which, as I understand it, is "correct" only because the civil authorities didn't recognize Jewish religious marriages)? Or the father's surname, which is presumably what the person used in life?

Thanks again.
