D Indicates that this may be a duplicate record because all names and birth year are the same as in the adjacent record. However, the event number and sometimes the "execution" date are different. The significance of the event number is not known.

Indicates that the surname appears to be unique to a particular village so that a village of origin can be surmised.

•• Indicates that a match has been found in the St. Petersburg data (only the Glueckstal records have been checked) or "Hoffnungstal und seine Schwaben"

••• Indicates a high degree of certainty usually because of conversation with close relatives of the deceased.

These codes indicate possible colony (district) of origin. Where a firm declaration has been made, the village name is spelled out and other information may be given.
