4/19/2015 4:10 PM This is a wedding certificate between the Groom Wajnbom and the bride Rozenbaum.

I'm seeking the facts from the document but not a full translation.
Dates, names, maiden names, Parent's names, professions, addresses. Any other facts.

I am especially interested in the maiden name of the groom's mother.

Thanks

39088 Interpretation

4/19/2015 4:09 PM Hi,

My grandfather was named Jerome Schiller and when he was born in 1903 his grandfather Henry Schiller wrote a poem in his honor.
We know that Schiller is not the family's original name and that Henry probably took it when he emigrated to the USA in 1860. I am a bit puzzled by my grandfather's Hebraic name (see top of the document).

Joseph Arjai bar Mordecai

Jerome's father was named Max so I get the "bar Mordecai" but I could not find any reference of what Arjai (Argai, Aryai ??) could mean. Could it be the original family name ?

If you have any idea your help would be most appreciated.

Cheers,

Francois
