Re: Children take on Mother's last name #galicia

In one Galician family that I researched, the older children had the mother's name, while the younger ones had the father's. It appears that a religious marriage took place first, causing the children's legal surname to be the mother's; once the civil marriage took place, the subsequent children had the father's name.
