Re: Need help deciphering LDS records
- Which record (from top) and page are you looking at? A suggestion is to go back to the birth record and see if a notation was made. I have seen birth records where a note was made in the case of an infant death where a date is written in such as "12 May 1842 mortium" either in the birth date box or in observations.

> Okay all you eagle-eyed researchers...I know you all are amazing, so perhaps one of you will be able to help me. I think I have found death records from Joannes Grich. He was born March 12 1842 in Plavnica to Jozsef Grich and Zsuzsanna Kotlinsky. The death record can be found at this link below. I can make out the name, died as an infant, and Jozsef Grich. I absolutely cannot read the date. I know that it was after Mar? 17 1842. Also, I have listing for a Sophia Kotlinsky who married Joseph Grich and had a child in 1844, I think. I do not find a listing for Zsuzsanna's death. I am thinking perhaps Joseph married the sister after she died, but have no proof. Any ideas and can anyone decipher that chicken scratch of a date?
