The Birth and Baptism of Wiktoria Dańko

My great-great-great grandfather, Wojciech Dańko, had two daughters named Wiktoria, one by each of his two wives. The first was baptized on 06 Dec 1800, the second on 27 Jul 1830. The second Wiktoria Dańko’s Birth and Baptismal Record is the third record on the image below, the last baptism recorded for Nienadowa in July 1830.

Birth and Baptismal Record of Wiktoria Danko - 1830

The Birth and Baptismal Record of Wiktoria Danko – 1830

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). 1830. Wiktoria Dańko. Text in Latin, translated by Stephen J. Danko.

Click on the link for a PDF copy of the Birth and Baptismal Record of Wiktoria Danko – 1830. The record states:

  • Wiktoria Dańko was born in house number 140 in Nienadowa, a girl legitimately born to a Catholic family and delivered by the midwife Anna Janowska
  • She was baptized on 27 Jul 1830 in the church in Dubiecko
  • Her parents were Wojciech Dańko, a farmer, and Rozalia, daughter of Józef Chróscicki
  • Her Godparents (Sponsors) were Kazimierz Chróscicki, farmer, and Barbara, wife of Marcin Kazienko, farmer

The left side of this image is cut off, and so I assume the date on this record is the date of Wiktoria’s baptism. The date of birth, when recorded, is usually written to the left of the date of baptism.

The name of the priest who baptized Wiktoria is not listed in this image. In Wiktoria’s record, the priest’s name is indicated as “ut supra”, meaning “as above”. Since the top of the image is missing, I don’t know the name of the priest written “above”.

Wiktoria’s Godparents (sponsors) are the same two people who were Godparents for the previous children of Wojciech Dańko and Rozalia Chruścicka; however, the midwife who delivered Wiktoria was someone new: Anna Janowska.

Since Wojciech had two daughters named Wiktoria, the first Wiktoria Dańko may have died before 1830. I’ll have to keep this in mind as I search for more records on this family.

    My great grandfather was Wociech Kazienko. I believe he was born in Nienadowa about 1875. Are there microfilmed records available? I believe the Parish Is Dubiecko.

    • Steve says:

      You are correct about Dubiecko being the parish for Nienadowa. The Dubiecko records have been maintained from the late 18th century to the present. All the record books are still held at the church in Dubiecko, but none of the Dubiecko records have been microfilmed.
