      Helv. Conf. means the Helvetic Conference of the Evangelical (Lutheran)
      Church. Most of the Lutheran churches, however, I think belong to the
      Augsburg Conference. It looks like the family may have caved in to the
      strong pressure to abandon their Lutheran faith. Nevertheless, the
      Lutherans still have a significant presence in Slovakia, and in some regions
      are in the majority. Janet

      I have a copy of the marriage record for my g-g-grandparents from 1867.
      The religion for my g-g-gf was listed as RK (Roman Catholic), however,
      for my g-g-gm, it is spelled something like Helvconf. I have no idea
      what that could possibly mean.

      I can scan in the image and email to anyone who could offer any help.

      Thanks, in advance!
