- Jun 8, 2011I did find an older sibling for Susanna, and the handwriting was much better. I
agree it is Oszczity.
I found her death on this page:
I was wondering where they came from since I cannot find their marriage registry
in Horne Oresany (her birthplace) or Budmerice (place of death). There is a
word that looks like "Bogdanore" under the 4th column which I thought was for
listing place of origin and address. Does this mean anything to anyone? It is
the last entry on the page, #38.
