Re: [S-R] need info
- If you are looking at a present day name in Europe such Ing. John Smith, it
is a "title" equivalent to professional engineer in the U.S. However, it is
no longer reserved for just engineers now, so it is similar to a board
certification in a profession.
If the "ing" is an abbreviation in an old birth record, it stands for a
farmer similar to a share cropper.

thank you for the information on Ing.
i am starting to correspond with someone in Slovakia and he has used Ing.
before his name, so i believe that the professional engineer is appropriate
in his case.
oh, my keyboard is fine. it is the writer who is too lazy to capitalize when
