Need help interpreting marriage record from Gesher Galicia #galicia #records


Carole Bass
 

In the marriage abstract below, which I copied and pasted from Gesher Galicia, what does the "r" signify after the bride's surname (Lea Frenkel r. Lustig)? Another abstract for the same couple lists the bride the same way but names her mother as Malke Käffig, not Lustig.

Many thanks.

This has been answered several time in the past.  r stands for recte, meaning false, i.e.,  needing correction.
You can search the Jewishgen Discussion List Archives or do a Google search for recte.

Sorry,  I have to correct my response.  r  means correct, i.e., the correct version is given.

" r stands for recte, meaning false". False is f.

Actually r means 'correctly'. Usually records have Schwartz r Blau, meaning the surname is Schwartz but should be Blau. The civil records clerk found the birth record or whatever of the person, and his / her parents weren't married civilly, so they 'should' be recorded with their mother's maiden name, Blau, but they use their father's surname, Schwartz. The rest of this answer was correct (r), but the meaning of the r was wrong.

Sally, thank you for the explanation. Now a follow-up question: how do you record these names in your family tree? Do you use the "correct" name (which, as I understand it, is "correct" only because the civil authorities didn't recognize Jewish religious marriages)? Or the father's surname, which is presumably what the person used in life?

Thanks again.
