TheMessage 1 of 44 , Dec 12 5:19 PMView SourceMany thanks to you and others for the comments. To answer - both samples are from the LDS Church Film record number 1791929 for Grancs-Petrovce in Spis. The film also covers Dubrava, Zehra, Beharovce and Olsavka. They are birth records for children of Mathias and Maria, one on April 28, 1816 and the other on Sept 4, 1831. Including the marriage record in Sep/Oct 1809 there are 12 records in all. There are actually 3 entries each with a variation:
17 Dec 1813 - after Maria it looks like "Kacmar"
21 April 1816 - after Maria it looks like "glesebo Kac(s)ma"
4 Sept 1831 - after Maria: "Sz.axi Krcma"
Except for those entries her last name of Janossy is used consistently and is quite clear. Other entries, as noted, have religion and status such as Roman Catholic and Pleb. I am familiar with those.
Using my Mac I scanned and copied those two entries but perhaps there is a better way. I'll work on it.
Also, all 12 records seem to be written by a different hand and I have looked through all of them for similar entries and do not see them.

> It seems pretty clear that the writer thinks she has an alias or second name of Krcma. Or at least he is supplying it to prevent confusion with some other person. While many names have distant meanings that come from professions, places, etc., there is no reason to believe that the refers to a profession.

If the text is online, by all means give the citation so others can read a full text and examine handwriting and column headings etc. By not supplying this information you make answering much more difficult.

I have the marriage record and other church records which show her maiden name as Janossy. In both files it looks like the second word is something like "krcma" but the first word is different in each file. Any help appreciated. Bill
