part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (1867-1918) and earlier a
part of Hungary under the Austrian Empire.
Hungarian names were used for towns and counties.
What was the LDS microfilm number ?
Inventar probably means 'inventory'.
Parish church record collection from Spis' territory.
In Slovak the matriky are parish church records.
Pre-WW I, Spis' z^upa (Sk) was called Szepes megye (county) in
In Slovak, so post-1895 or just a film header ?
The parish church records were generally written in Latin, Hungarian;
sometimes German, Ruthenian, and even in Hebrew.
Since it was typed it must have been post c. 1920.
