I think you can feel free to post just a snip of YOUR data that you paid for, as I am doing here. It's not like someone saying "Please look up this data for me and send it so I don't have to pay."

The first attached snip is the name of your village. When you don't understand the handwriting, look for a name you can recognize. In this case, I turned to the previous page and looked for names that clearly started with "A" and "H". They are the other two attachments. To my eye, your village name first letter doesn't look like either of these two.

This has really helped me with reading the Czech records on actapublica. _atharina could only be Katharina. Then I recognize "K". I've even gone so far as to snip out an example of every letter I could find, for a record here in Nebraska, trying to decipher the name (without success).

I know there's a program that does a reverse lookup -- right to left. You end up with all the places that end in "kel". But I think that's German town names only.
