I would like to know my great-grandfather's parents' names. I believe it is Joseph Rosenberg, but what is Sara's last name?

11/29/2012 12:17 AM I would say Azernitzki(spelled Azernicki)
11/29/2012 12:57 AM Looks like:

Josef Rosenberg
Sara Azernicki

(The A is the same as the Aron in the person performing the ceremony, and the "z" is how it was frequently written in the middle of a word)

Good luck!
11/29/2012 1:29 AM Josef Rosenberg and Sara Azernicki.
Chaim Shesler is probably Chaim Schesler (Shneider was Schneider !) But also could have been Schessler, even Sessler is possible. The mother could have been Fani, Fanni or Fanny.
11/29/2012 5:57 AM I see groom, Abi ROSENBERG and bride Ester SHESLER. 1st marriage for each.
Parents of groom: Josef ROSENBERG and Sara Czernicki.
Parents of bride: Chaim SHESLER and Fannie GOLDSTEIN

The brides surname seems to commence with letter "S" and the officiating person's name is Aron S. Striczmer.

However, as you can see the official station at 78 RIdge Street
has "Congration" inserted. So there may be some transliteration on what
is sounded and what is written.
11/29/2012 6:12 AM just as a curiosity, note the name of the first witness, which seems to be a phonetic rendering of KATZENELLENBOGEN.
11/29/2012 6:13 AM I have done a lot of indexing and arbitration of records, and I agree with most that the groom's mother's surname is Azernizki. The first letter is clearly not an S, as you can see in her first name Sara, but is a typical A.

11/29/2012 7:55 PM Hello Jeremy,

Here is how I decipher the information in this document:

Left side:
Abi Rosenberg, 26 years old, white, single
340 E. 101st St.
(If)Occupation(?): Schneider/tailor
Born: Russia
Father: Josef Rosenberg
Mother: Sara Azermeki or Azernieki
lst marriage

Right side:
Ester Shesler, 20 years old, white, single
242 Monoroe
Born: Russia
Father: Chaim Shesler
Mother: Fanne Goldstein
1st marriage

Keep in mind that many spellings are possible for the pronounciation of a name in various countries, so don't let that confuse you....Jo
