12077 Interpretation

6/14/2009 This is a 17-Sep-1871 marriage registered in Vandziogala, Lithuania between a 25-year-old groom and a 22-year-old bride. According to the translator, the names of the newlyweds are not indicated in the record. Is that correct? According to the translator, the Rabbi was Iankel GRINBLAT ben Meier. Where in the record does it say that? He was my great grandfather. Witnesses were Leiba GRINBLAT (his uncle) and Rabbi Aron ZELTSER. View the post with its 1 response
