Re: Re: D. before names in RC records
- Hi Joe,
That thought occured to me, but I don't think so, altho the Joseph
Neczasek who was the father of the Joseph in the records was supposed to
have been a doctor according to family story written down in Sabinov
But that wouldn't explain the D. in front of everyone's name......
especially the bride who was only 16.
I also thought of "deceased" but that of course made no sense for the
I guess I just need to keep digging!

- Another thought on the D before the name--perhaps it represents some form of
a prayer, with D being short for Deus. The Irish nuns always put a cross on
the top of everything they wrote--letters, etc. Since a cross in the church
records of Slovakia usually indicated that the baby had died, perhaps the D
is a prayer? Just a thought. Caroline
