Re: Fraenckel, Memoire Juive en Alsace #france


Family and DNA
 

I'm replying to the group in case it's helpful to others.

In France the usual method is not to use English-style quotation marks but instead to use what they call guillemets, double sideways chevrons (« and »). I didn't know it until just now, but it is common in many other languages as well, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guillemet.

As for why some names as in quotes/guillemets & some in parentheses, & the significance of that versus the name with nothing, I dunno -- I'll see what somebody else says here!

regards,

Juliana Berland (France)

In a number of entries In the Fraenckel book of marriages contracts,, there is something I don’t completely understand. I could not find an explanation, but might have missed as I am not sure how it would explained in French, After some names, there is another name in "   ", except they look like two < & > & in other entries a second name is in (  ). The first might involve males & the second females, but not sure. Are these a nickname, a Hebrew name, a later surname, something else? Thank you.
