The Birth and Baptism of Rozalia Dańko

The fourth child of Wojciech Dańko and Marianna Jedlińska was born in 1804. She was named Rozalia and her Baptismal Record is the last one at the bottom of the image below.

The Birth and Baptismal Record of Rozalia Dańko

SOURCE: Roman Catholic Parish of the Immaculate Heart of the Most Holy Virgin Mary, Dubiecko, Poland. Liber Natorum et Baptisatorum (Book of Births and Baptisms). 1804. Rozalia Dańko. Text in Latin, translated by Stephen J. Danko.

Click on the link for a PDF copy of the Birth and Baptismal Record of Rozalia Dańko. The record states:

  • Rozalia Dańko was born in house number 161 in Nienadowa, a girl legitimately born to a Catholic family
  • She was baptized on 10 Aug 1804 in the church in Dubiecko
  • Her parents were Wojciech Dańko and Marianna Jedlińska
  • Her Godparents (Sponsors) were Wojciech Trupiło, a landless farmer, and Marianna Markoska, wife of a farmer
  • She was baptized by Leopold Kuczki

Several of the five children of Wojciech Dańko and Marianna Jedlińska whose Birth and Baptismal Records I’ve shown so far have the same Godparents (sponsors). The Godfather of three of the children was Wojciech Trupiło and the Godmother of four of the children was Marianna Markoska.

Why were these two people asked to be the Godparents of the Dańko children over and over again? Perhaps Wojciech Trupiło and Marianna Markoska were close neighbors, prominent citizens in the community, or family members.

Throughout the Galician records, several different Latin words were used for farmers. The ones I seen most often are agricola, meaning a farmer who owned land, rusticus, meaning a landless farmer, and hortulanus, meaning a gardener who owned a small amount of land.
