I have run across a notation in a record in the St. Andreas church
book that I have not seen before in any of the other records. It is
the use of the word "genant."
Could I scan someone the record?
It appears in the second marriage (in 1754) for the man whom I
believe to be my ancestor, Joes: Otto Darenkamp. The word "genant"
appears several times in this record -- but not in any of the other
records on the page so far as I can tell. It appears in connection
with the bride.
I have not been able to find a baptism for a later ancestor (possibly
this man's son -- supposed to have been born in 1759) yet all of my
other family records are here. This record might tell me why I cannot
find the son.
In the Thode book, "gennant" means "in reference to." I could not find
"genant" (with one "n") in the Thode book.
