Transcription of Family History Library Microfilm # 1714805
Transcribed for occurrences of the surname Brutscheck

Filmed 5 Jun 1990, Project # POL 2003, Roll # 372


[The province of Wroclaw existed from 1975 to 1998. On 1 Jan 1999, the 49 Polish provinces were reduced to 16;

Wroclaw to Dolnoslaskie province. Prior to WW II, this part of Poland belonged to Germany.]


Definitions in [abc = xyz] are from German-English Genealogical Dictionary by Ernest Thode: [abc…] = WEB’s remarks,

? = uncertainity, _ = unknown letter, ehl. = ehel. = ehelich = legitimate, fr. = frau, Paur = farmer,

Gärtner = gardener; farmer with a small farm.

[The Deutsch “s” sometimes looks like the double “ss” symbol. I, WEB, tend to put in the “ss”.]
[Burial records surnames of wives are apparently the surname of the husband. This can cause confusion.]

[Mon, 19 May 2008 01:52:33 PM EDT     Hi Walt,
After looking at the film with the new number you gave me I have found the two entries you have mentioned.  I have also showed the entries to the two foremost experts for german records at the reference desk.  The general concensus was that the words "Pulsten" and "Kertzen" have nothing to do with the age of the child at the time of her death.  The records are catholic and "kerzen" means candles, which were burned in memory of the child, "pulsten" most likely mean bells being chimed (although we could not find the expression in the dictionary) and "stand lied" means some kind of hyms or songs being sung.  I can not guarantee that this is correct but is the best I was able to find out.
