[Klonowo 99]

[This happened in Pałuki between the twentieth and twenty-eighth days of November in the year one-thousand eight-hundred forty-seven at the hour of [unknown?] in the morning.  There appeared Jakub Milewski, owner of a part [of the village] of Klonowo, twenty-four years of age, in the presence of [unreadable?], and [unreadable?] Bartołd, [unreadable?], residing in [unreadable?], and he showed Us a child of the male sex born [unreadable?]] at the hour of twelve noon of his wife Franciszka née Suwińska, twenty-three years of age.  To this child at Holy Baptism performed on this day was given the name Józef, and his Godparents were Józef Suwiński and Miss Wiktoria Suwińska.  This document was read aloud to the declarant and witnesses. Because they do not know how to write, it was signed only by Us.
[signed] The Reverend Ksawery Nałęcz, Pastor of Pałuki

Józef Milewski was the nephew of Józef Andrzej Suwiński, the husband of Marianna Chodkowska, my 2nd cousin 4X removed. Since most of this record is too faint to read, I had to guess at much of the contents of the top half of the record. I was able to narrow the date of the baptism to 20-28 November 1847 based on the dates of the preceding and subsequent records.
