The church record is from Pivnice, about 39 Km north of Novi Sad.
It is not far fetched though since I can verify that until recently
the branch of the family in Bratislava still where on terms with the
rest of the family that had migrated to northern Serbia. Many people
seem to think that people just didn't move around much back then.
Perhaps not for the most part, but this is just one more possible
case where it seems they did. Now I have a little mystery. I'll see
if my cousin in Bratislava has seen anything in the docs he has.
