      Yes, Tom, these records are in Hungarian.

      keresztszülõk neve: name of godparents

      allasa és vallasa: status and religion
      szulok neve allasa és vallasa: parents names, status, and religion
      anyakonyve: register of births, marriages, and deaths

      Normally the data are provided in the following order:

      Date of baptism

      Given name of child

      Name of parents, their status and religion

      Name of godparents, their status and religion

      The most commonly encountered uniquely Hungarian consonants include:

      J - sounds like "y"

      S - sounds like "sh"

      SZ - sounds like "s"

      CS - sounds like "ch"

      CZ - sounds like "ts" (now obsolete, replaced by C)

      It won't take you long before it all comes more easily-honest.

      Subject: [S-R] translation for Brezovica

      In looking through microfiches from Brezovica Nad Torysou I ran into some
      strange words,
      which are HUNGARIAN??, or what?
      Keresz Tszulok neve, allasa es vallasa
      A szulok neve allasa es vallasa

      This was in the section that I believe is births and baptisms.'
      I also saw the heading "Anyakonyve" which I assume translates to either
      births or baptisms. There also seem to be Hungarian spelling of surnames,
      Can anyone help me with the translation?
