Re: Translation Help
- Is there any way that you can sharpen up the focus?
None of the letters extend below the line. That suggests a village name like Lucska, as an example.

HOLÍČ, okr. SENICA (od r. 1996 SKALICA) – 1×;An interesting name, "Georgius Szkladani " and year "1783" which caught my attention and leaves me to wonder, given the rarity of the surname itself, if there might be a connection in any way between it and the "Kladzan" surname of my ancestor, Joannes Kladzan, found in the RC church records of village Vinne, Slovakia,1828, the year and place of his birth and baptism. The "Kladzan" spelling survived in my branch of the family until 1910 when it suddenly appeared as "Klodzen" in the US Census of that year. For us it's remained that way ever since, another branch of the family continues the "Kladzan" spelling .Eugene KlodzenResearching KLADZAN, HLADKY, PIKULA, LABADOV
