Law/Patents - Certificates, Diplomas, Licenses, CVs / Zaire/DRC birth certificate
French term or phrase: S.D.
This is from a birth certificate from Zaire which is now the Democratic Republic of Congo. The abbreviation S.D has come up before in another question but the response was that it stood for initials. This definitely isn't the case here. The name of the child that has been born is given and then on the next line "S.D". It then goes on to state:

fils de [name].......... S.D..........
et de [name]........... S.D..........

Nothing is given after the abbreviations but there is space for a comment if required.

Any ideas?
