I have a birth certificate issued >from Nowy Targ Poland that lists the
child's mother as "Ester SCHLACHET nee TIEBERGER. " What does "nee"
mean? What language is this? It would make sense to me, given what I
have been told, that it must mean "formerly." Can anyone confirm this?

Nee is French for "born" - Tieberger was her maiden name.
