* (one star) is in some old pedigrees it was used in leiu of a WC title. Well now we just put "WC"
** (two star) is a 3rd, 4th, RJam or JAM in a Qual (field trial)
*** (three star) is also called QAA or Qualified All Age if a dog takes 1st or 2nd in a Qual

I could be a little bit off but that's basically it, the stars are designations for field trial accomplishments, not official titles.

YUP! But for a more thorough explanation (From the GRCA website)

** The two stars following a dog’s name is a designation given by the GRCA to identify a Golden Retrieve that has been awarded a 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th place or a JAM in a Derby stake or that has been awarded a 3 rd or 4 th place or a JAM in a Qualifying stake at an AKC licensed field trial. Only one such place or JAM is required.

*** The three stars following a dog’s name is a designation given by the GRCA to identify a Golden Retriever that has earned Qualified All Age (QAA) status in accordance with the AKC rules for Retriever Field Trials. A dog earns QAA status by being awarded a 1st or 2nd place in a Qualifying stake, or by being awarded a place or JAM in either an Amateur or Open stake. Only one such place or JAM is required. While QAA status is applicable with respect to a dog’s qualification to enter certain stakes, the AKC does not award a title for achieving the status
