Re: Latin ?
- To Judi: found a web site and got the meaning of most of the words about
which I had a question. For everyone, further questions about the old church
records. There were pages of script in one of the volumes, all in Latin, and
only recognized Regis Hungaria . Would these have been proclamations of the
King of Hungary? My other thought was that they could have been church
proclamations. The records we have go back to 1712, the second entry in that
journal was one of my ancestors. Any suggestions as to where one goes next
for information after the church records are exhausted? Caroline
The LDS has "Geneological Word Lists" for different language that are
handy and very cheap. I bought the one for Latin - and found the answer
to the Slovak months in their listing. FOr example they show November
as November, 9ber,IXber. Allowing for a change to the Slovak or
Hungarian "bris" in place of "ber" and the problem issolved - avter the
good answers from S-W and here.
They also list regis as royal, regnum as kingdom, regimine pedestre as
infantry regiment. I would take Regis Hungaria as Royal Hungaria, as
today we would say Republic of Hungary (if indeed it is a republic).

My name is JoAnn Cox. I have been looking for someone to translate bohemian
into english. I have some death notices that I can't read. My mother could
read and write bohemian but she passed away in 1995. Too little to late.
Should have gotten interested in geneology sooner. My grandfather was
Joseph Kyhos and my grandmother was Anna M. Cervenka. They were both born
in 1881 in Pecinov, Nove Stretsche sorry about the spelling. About an hour
out of Prague. I am looking for any help I can get with their geneology .
Talk to you soon.

- I don't know where you are located, but one suggestion I have is to try a
high school. We have an exchange student from Slovakia this year, last year
we had one from the Czech Republic. The young people do sometimes have
trouble with the old language. Try Slovak World--their traffic is higher and
someone can probably help from there.
