Hannah ISRAEL #general


Mrs M Sprott
 

Could it be possible for someone to help me work out why my Jewish
Granmother gave her 6 daughters the surname ISRAEL, when the 12 boys took
the surname of their father.

Granma also listed her mother's name as "unknown" on her marriage
certificate, but listed her father as Morris ISRAEl and put (Moshe) in
brackets. She listed her father's occupation as a Tailor, which is what her
birth certificate in England says. Could Hanna ISRAEL's mother have died
and she was bought up by another member of her family, so she did not know
who here real mother's name was?

In the NY marriage certificates I've seen, the handwriting seems to indicate
that the forms were filled out by the person who performed the marriage. (I've
seen the names of the bride and groom mispelled <g> - My favorite misspelling
is one "Hery" for Harry, and "Manhaten". Say it out loud, and you've got the
NY Jewish accent in a nutshell.)

So maybe your rabbi forgot to ask, or just plain forgot?
