|Birth Record of Aranka/Golda Joszovics|
Aranka/Golda was born on February 24, 1904 in Darva (current-day Kolodne, Ukraine). Her parents are given as Iszak Joszovics (my great-great uncle) and Eszter Herskovics. Her sister Feige/Fani's birth record is practically identical. But regardless of her father's name being on the birth record, it seems that the parents weren't civilly married (which wasn't unusual):
|Marriage of Hers David Slomovic to Aranka (Golda) Herskovic, 1933|
I already had birth records for children of Hers David and Aranka/Golda (Herskovic) Slomovic. They include:
- Helena, born February 13, 1933 (her parents' civil marriage legitimized her birth)
- Izak, born October 13, 1934
- Helena (implying the first child died young), born November 27, 1936
- Mendel, Helena's twin
|Birth of (the second) Helena Slomovic, 1936|
Note that Feige & Golda's birth records were in Hungarian, as at that point the town was in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, but their marriage records and most of their children's birth records are in Czech. One of Fani's daughter's birth record was in Ukrainian (she was born the time that Kolodne was part of the short-lived Carpathian Ruthenia).
I would also like to know why these two sisters used two different surnames. Anyone have ideas?
