- Jan 1, 2000Hi Andrea,
What you are describing is a very common practice in the RCatholic
registers I've read for both Sabinov (from late 1600's to 1895) and
Zboro. I think it's probably pretty common in general, as it's also been
that way in Lutheran registers I've read from Berlin.
Mostly I've seen it for young children who died fairly soon after birth,
where they would register the death there also (sometimes also noting it
in the regular death register, sometimes not as I checked quite a few of
them out when finding children in my line I did not know of who died
young). However, I also have seen it for older people, but not as
I've also seen confirmations and moving out of the village noted in the
column for "observations". Also later marriages of an mother who had an
"kassa" is the word often used in that context, tho it is not in my
Hungarian word book either. Could it be Kassa, isn't that the name for
Kassau (spelling may be wrong)? I've seen that on the back of many
photographs of my family, where the portrait studio was they used.
"okan" is not in it , but "oka" is and it means "cause of".
