Re: Help with GGfathers name missing on Gfathers Birth certificate #general

r is recte 'correctly'; f is falshe 'falsely'. Usually on a birth record it says child's given name, father's surname r mother's surname or child's name, mother's surname f father's surname. In these patterns mother's surname is recte and father's surname is falshe, as the government considered the child illegitimate.
