Malay to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents / birth certificate
Malay term or phrase:(handwritten abbreviation)
On two Malaysian birth certificates: a handwritten abbreviation after a woman's English name (the mother's name) and before what may be the name of her father. On one document it looks like R/y and on another more like Dp.
