    My guess is that Bertha Weinberg’s father was Bernhard…. 

    So I did a quick search. I found the 1940 census (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K3YR-CNG) with  Jack Selig, wed to a Bertha, and their son, Bernard. Living with them were Jack’s parents, David and Mathilda and a cousin Karl.  Now, per the marriage record you found Jack’s (Jacob) parents were David and Mathilde, and Bertha’s father was Ben….

I am trying to figure out the names of the parents of a distant cousin of mine.  Her name was Bertha Weinberg who was born in Germany.  She married Jacob Selig in 1933 in New York.  I found the record at: https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?givenname=bertha&givenname_exact=on&surname=weinberg&surname_exact=on&birth_place=germany&birth_place_exact=on&birth_year_from=1904&birth_year_to=1908&count=20&offset=0

This site shows the names of her parents as:
Father's Name    Benshaw Weinberg
Mother's Name    Bertha Reaunsch...Eijr

It seems obvious that there was an error in transcription or in an OCR reading of the original.  Does anyone have any ideas of what these names might be, or where I could find a copy of the original document?
