Meaning of the terms "ozvegy" and "elvalt" depending on their position relative to the maiden name and previous husband's surname. That is, does the bride's maiden name come before or after the word ozvegy/elvalt?

Hi Larry,
I can help you with this one. The little "sz" between Rachel and Freidreich is short for "szu:letett" which means "was born" so in this case, Simon (surnname), Rachel, nee Freireich, widow, born Rzeschow is the entry.
