Thanks very much for your help. I appreciate the clarification.

I agree with your opinion about the "+" sign. My experience with this
collection is that the marginal notations refer to the subjects of the
record but noted at a later time, in this case either Georg Philipp or
Elisabethe Margarethe, probably a death notation for the former. The
binding was too tight to read it, unfortunately.
