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.
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.
