birth before marriage #general

Miriam Eguchi <miriamj@...>
 

According to records obtained >from Lodz authorities, both my grandmother and
great grandmother seem to have given birth to their first child well before
their marriage registration date. (One was about 2 years before, the other a
few months, but she would have become pregnant well over a year before the
marriage. I know that no one can tell me what really happened in these
particular cases, but I'm hoping that more experienced researchers can tell
me which of the following is most likely:

1. They had a religious marriage ceremony before becoming pregnant and then
registered the marriage with the Lodz authorities much later, possibly for
financial reasons.
2. They lived together and had a child before getting married.
3. They registered both events well after the fact and got the dates
confused.

Extra info:
--My great grandmother married into a very religious (Hasidic) family. My
grandmother was an atheistic socialist, and her husband was a
Cheder ---Hebrew teacher after emigrating to Canada in 1920, but I don't
know what he was doing when they met in Lodz.
--I got the actual handwritten records for my great grandmother >from the
Lodz Archives, but for my grandmother I only have the typed certificates
from the City Hall, as they are not yet 100 years old.
Thanks for any insights.

from Poland; Shayovich (ditto about spellings)) >from Romania.

Re: Strategies for viewing and translating microfilm #general

Schelly - you sure do have a way with words - making it easy to understand
the "ways and means" of your important research aid!
I'm going to follow your tips myself - before I visit the MiamiDade Library
next month, on our JGSPBC bus trip!

Actually, when I attended one of the Conferences in SLC, Utah years ago, one
of the guides printed my paternal research name in Russian, but I have never
been able to find it on film. I have documents >from Lithuania but have never
thought to copy the name in my notes!
I'll do that tonight!
