I would be grateful if someone could translate this record that I snipped from the 1869 Hungarian Census for Szenicz/Senica for (Jak) Jakob Beinhacker (born 1790) and wife Johanna (born 1800). I'm unable to decipher Jakob's occupation (center column) and his place of birth (column on right side). Johanna was from Szenicz, that is legible. Jakob's place of birth may be in either a town in Western Slovakia or the Czech Republic, near the Czech border.
With many thanks.

If the occupation is in the 6th column from the left, I believe that the word is "mezos". The meaning has some connection to the field, possibly a field worker.

Also, I assume that you know that the husband was born in 1790 and the wife, Johanna, was born in 1800.

As for the town for Jakab, the best I can decipher is Kunv', which might stand for something like Kunvar. This is only a guess....Jo
5/9/2013 7:42 AM i can't make out the occupation in the 7th column.

the 6th column seems to say mázas, not mező which is written with a double acute accent, sometimes represented as a tilde. not in current use, as far as i know, but it's quite close to mázoló, which means painter. i'm not clear why the second line would then say ditto for his wife.

the place of birth could be kunó, a small town in the szenicze district of nyitra megye.
