recto / r

Frt certainly stands for "frente" (see Taña's references). In references to historical documents, at least, the equivalent is "recto" (ie. the front side of the sheet, as opposed to "verso", the reverse). It is commonly abbreviated to "r", formerly with a point (r.) but nowadays usually without. This doesn't tend to arise with modern documents in English since foliation as opposed to pagination is hardly never used, but I think that a registrar would probably use "recto" rather than "front" (though the latter is certainly found).
