Re: Church records Turna nad Bodvou 1886
- Hi Frank,
Such a wealth of information... Thank you!
Yes, I have the films you listed and am now finally getting to use my
high school Latin.
Initially, I am noting the details of any entries containing the name
Ando. The Ferencz entry particularly caught my eye because it is
close to the correct date. When Ferdinand passed away in 1976, the
Mass card listed his birth date as 15 May 1886. It is probably
correct, but I will feel a lot better when we get independent
confirmation, such as the baptismal entry.
My next step will be to get the copy of the SS-5 application and
see if it lists Ferdinand's birth town.
I don't want to get ahead of myself in the research, but it will also
be fun to check out Ferdinand's father, Martin. Family tradition has
it that he was in the Hungarian cavalry.
But, first things first.
