Hello Mrs. 97, 

The "genannt" of Ernest Thode is the same as the "genant" in the St. Andreas 
records. I would translate it to "also known as" (aka), "called", "alias". 
It refers to name changes. Those might occur when a girl inherited a farm and 
her husband had to adapt to the farm name, a "normal" procedure in the region
well into the 20th century. It is still possible to do so if a farm name would 
die out otherwise. You could also find it in Latin as "sive" or "condictus, 
condicta" or abbreviated "cdct." and the initial "c" mirrored to indicate that 
is is an abbreviation.
That name change would occur as well when you inherited or bought a farm.

I grew up in a small village where everyone had an everyday name and a "school" 
or "bureaucracy name". The everyday name was the farm name such as "Greten, 
Orns, Dietz, Loames, Sander, Hensel" etc.   

Sincerely yours 

Falk Liebezeit
