29323RE: [Slovak-World] Meaning of Mola Media, superior and inferior in the context of a molitor/miller.
- May 7, 2010Thomas,
Frequently locations near each other are known as "UPPER" and "LOWER" or
"OLD" and "NEW". Is it possible that the words you are looking at have
I can expect that the words for UPPER and LOWER might be similar to INFERIOR
and SUPERIOR. I recommend you check the secondary meanings of the words.

Hello everyone, I've got a question I'm hoping someone here might be able to
help me answer. I've tried researching this, but it appears I need some
I have ancestors who lived in Slovenska Ves, Slovakia, aka Totfalu and
Windischdorf and apparently in at least one nearby town.
In the FHC films, I have noted my ancestors occupation was stated as
`Molitor' (miller) and his address was noted as "Mola Media", "Mola
Superior" and I noted another probable relative had the address Mola
Inferior". There were also periods interspersed, where his address was
simply written as a number, as was (and is today) the common address
indication for the town/village due to the small size. I should note it
appears at least one of the middle records indicates he had a different
profession than Molitor which indicated in records before and after, but I'm
still deciphering the writing/meaning of that one.
My question is, does anyone know what was intended by these various
addresses denoted by medio, inferior or superior? Were there different mills
on the same river? Was the note referring to the fact he was living in a
secondary (media) millers house, and than later in a master (superior)
