From a Birth Registration. This is from the column regarding the mother. Her name was Judes Teller, listed as a single woman residing in Sokal.

What other information follows her name?
Did she have an occupation?
Were Dawid and Perl Teller her parents, or was there a different relationship described?
What else, if anything, is said about them?

Thanks for your help.

3/21/2013 10:34 PM Hello Maureen,

There is an observation here that does not make sense to me. According to the translation provided, the name of the child's mother is Judes Teller, daughter of Dawid and Perl Teller. To me this indicates that Teller was the parents surname and her/Judes' maiden name.

However, in the previous Viewmate regarding the father of the child, his surname is also Teller.

Either there is a mistake here, or it is possible that both family surnames were Teller. You might have to wait until you accumulate more information to have a difinitive determiniation of the family relationships....Jo
