One of the great clues in learning about a family is the listing of their religions in the 1869 Hungarian census. Jablonca natives were mostly of the Hungarian Reformed Religion. REF is the abbreviation, in the census form, for the Reformed church in Hungary, notably a form of Calvinism that was brought from Switzerland and embraced by many Magyars. RK is Catholic; Mozes or Izraelita translates into those of the Jewish religion and the nearest synagogue was 22 miles away in Torna. GK is the acronym for Greek Catholics or Greek Orthodox . The nearest place for them to worship was in Barakony. Then there are a scant few Lutherans labeled Evangelical in the 1869 Hungarian census . In Jablonca , they did not seem to have their own church or go to one nearby .They were baptized in the Catholic church more than in the other church in town, the Calvinist church. Below is one of a family of Lutherans (Augsberg) that lived in the village, in House # 63 .
