    Hello,

    I'm translating a birth certificate and am wondering if anyone knows the meaning of the letters "d" and "a" appearing immediately before the names of the parents listed in the 'Datos del Inscrito':

    Padre D.
    Madre D(a)


    I'm assuming they indicate a relation of some sort to the registrant, but am not sure what kind of relation, other than that they are father and mother.

    Thanks for any clues.

    If what you have is D and D(a), my best guess is Don (Mr) and Doña (Mrs)
