      vd could also be a Latin abbreviation for vide- see.
      I have see in Catholic documents "vide pag. 201" or "vd. p. 304" and once I saw vd. familia ______, so you could have a document that is cross-referencing.
      IF the document is in Slovak, then vd= vdova would be most likely, but the Selcani doesn't fit grammatically-- not that this in and of itself would nullify the "vdova" thought, as form documents don't always fit grammatically.....
      However, so far only Ludovit is able to verify the language, which would make a big difference....

      >>> 'vd' is an abrreviation for "vdova" (= widow)
      Hence my reading is Milcová [the widow of] Selèáni <<<

      Alan, I believe that è is an accented c and so it would be the widow of
      Selc'ani, a name that currently appears in Komarno and Kolarvo.
