29463Re: Birth Records
- Apr 1, 2011I believe the records you are looking at are in Hungarian. It has been a while since I worked on my Hungarian church records, but I recognize several words: szuletes/ birth, leanya/daughter, kora/age, ev/year. I believe that the second record could very well be the death record for the child, Anna, in the first record. The parents are the same and the column headed by "kora" has "1 ha" listed (hó, hónap and hava can be used for month). A child born November 16 would be 1 month around December 22. On the death record, the column to the right of the age column should be the cause of death, but I can't make out what it says. You can find information on reading the church records written in Hungarian on Bill Tarkulich's Slovak Genealogy Research Strategies website. Go to Toolbox then Church Records, then Jaso Headers. Hope this helps somewhat.
