RE: [S-R] Hungarian and Slovak Nobility
- Hi again,
I was not able to find Prokopics on the DVD. The closest I could come was
Ignácz Prokopecz from Bars megye, with only a brief mention of the name.
Kecskés is another story. I think I indicated to you before that this is a
fairly common Hungarian name. It is not surprising, then, that I found many
references to the name--237 to be exact, with another 8 under the Ketskés
spelling. They may refer to a number of different families.
Can you give me any more information, such as specific county or village?
There are two coats of arms listed for families of this name.
I will help if I can, but I will need much more to go on.

- It has her listed as Ilona/Julia, presumably because
of the tendency to give the Hungarian form of names.
It is unfortunate that this print-off of the parish
register is so difficult to read. The original was bad
enough, but this print-off is slightly worse.
