Hello, this is the birth record from Mielnica, for my Great Grandfather Aron Schuster(who became Harry Lehman). At the RED MARK, I would appreciate if someone could help interpret the last column.
Looks like its says Uscie but the family was from Mielnica for several previous generations.
What would Uscie refer to? I know its a near by town but why would it appear on this record?
Thank you for any insights.
Brian Lehman

if Uscie was a nearby place, maybe the actual birth happened there, but was recorded in Mielnica, since this was the residence of the family.
Ruchel Mendlowicz might have had relatives there, like a sister, and chose to give birth there, or she just happened to be on her way through Uscie, when the birth occured.
