Working with 18th century church records, I found two confusing date entries that I have a hard time wrapping my head around:
The records are from the Untertürkheimer Kirchenbuch (1694-1800), which is available electronically at Ancestry.com (reel 10055947, frame 482).
I read the two record headers as 23d and 24th Sunday after Trinity Sunday, which I can count out from a calendar. These dates are one week apart. However, the dates in the margin are not.
- Why are there two dates recorded for each entry?
- Why do they differ in this case?
- Could the editorial comment ("cop[ulati] ... ob impregnationem") have anything to do with the discrepancies?
