      I guess I meant that keeping the Slovak tradition of -ova or -sky to-ska may help you more than trying to move it into a masculine form when you see it. It is a church document? Therefore, it may be Latin- with the Milec for clarification. Usually the RC church kept (and keeps) records in Latin.  My records in Slovakia are in Latin, in fact....
      However, if it is a Lutheran church, I am going to bank on Slovak or German records....

      I'm not sure I understand your request to propogate the name. I listed Milec because it was available in the document. It is in reference to a female ancestor so yes Milcova is correct. The "e" was an accented "c" so that is correct. Some how my copy/paste was corrupted by my yahoo maybe. Thanks for the possible meaning of vdova Alan. The fact that Selcani is a name is helpful. It's interesting /a little/ that the church bothered to put the masculine surname with her. Perhaps to note her late husbands surname without question?
      This document that the church sent is available in my folder here in the group, title- Leporis_family_ church_record. doc. Feel free to eke out what you can. BTW, the language is Slovak, eastern dialect.
