I am seeking confirmation of all the names on this marriage record of my great-grandparents Anshel Zlotnik and Gitel Rzeznik (spelling?).

In a previous translation from 10 years ago on a poorer image, there was some question about the mothers' maiden names of the bride and groom. Anshel's mother's name was transliterated as Chaya Anshelow and Gitel's mother's name was transliterated as Sura Gelda Nusanow. I would like to confirm that those are indeed surnames and not patronymics.

Neither of those surnames are present in the JRI-Poland indices for Zakroczym or Nasielsk (where these families were from); however, there are records for ENCEL and MOCNY. Could those be alternate transliterations of Anshel and Nusan respectively?

4/29/2015 6:50 AM This pccured in the town of Nasel'sk on 24th of July 1891 at 3 o'cklock in the afternoon. In the presence of witnesses.....the religious marriage union between Anshel Zlotnikov, bachelor, 28 years old, the son of the still living Yoska and Chaya, nee Anshelov(a), who passed away, spouses Zlotnikov, who (Anshel) was born in the village of (?) Gmina Nasel'sk and residing in the village of Gmina Tem'kovo(?), and bride Gitel Rzheznik, 27 years old, the daughter of Mordka Leyba, who passed away, and still living Sura Gelda, nee Nusonov(a), spouses Rzheznik, was born (Gitel) and residing in the town of Nasel'sk....etc.
5/1/2015 6:32 PM As a native Russian-speaking person born in Ukraine, I reassure you that those are indeed surnames and not patronymics. Unless a scribe/clerk made a crucial misstake twice.
The groom's mother was born as Chaya Anshelova, and the bride's mother was born as Sura-Golda Nusenova or Nusonova.
I would not limit the search by JRI-Poland only...
Mothers could be born far away of the family residency after marriage. Let us say other parts of Ukraine, Russia, Romania, Hungary, whereever...
