Hungary SIG #Hungary Illegitimate WOLF in Huncovce; "Spenglau;" "Nehro" #hungary


Hilary Osofsky
 

I would appreciate it if someone could provide some rationale for why, out =
of the six birth records I have found for my g-g-grandparents' children bor=
n in Hunfalu / Huncovce between 1834 and 1845, it is only the third child, =
born in 1840, whose birth was characterized as illegitimate on the birth ce=
rtificate. For present purposes, I have assumed that the infant was not the=
product of an extra-marital affair.

Although it doesn't appear relevant, I'll add that this child, who evidentl=
y died at birth, was assigned no given name (or gender) except "illegitimat=
e."

Separately, I've been unable to determine the following and am hoping that =
someone might be able to point me in the right direction:

1. The identity of a town, transcribed as "Spenglau" >from an 1858 marriage =
record, on either JewishGen, Cisarik, or Google (the Radix website is block=
ing my computer for technical reasons).

2. Whether "Nehro" might be Nehre, Szepes, Hungary - now Strazky, Presov, S=
lovakia.

Thank you.
