Marriage Records on JRI site: column called "Parents" #galicia

Ellen Korpi
 

Dear Fellow Genners:

In answer to the question about column "Parents": The great rabbi
Gedalia Schmelkes was the chief rabbi of Przemysl. You can read
about him on the link below... he was quite a man. My
understanding is that he is in that column because he presided at
the wedding. In fact, I believe he presided at the wedding of my
great grandparents.

Hello,

I am trying to find out where my paternal grandmother came from. She is said
to have come >from Kovno but I think it was a shtetyl in the area not the
town itself. Sarah YELINSON was born in about 1893 and when she was about
12 (ie in 1905) is said to have come to London on her own to family. Her
father was Joseph and had died by the time she married in 1915. Has anyone
any information to lead me to the name of her shtetyl?

Many thanks
