This happened in the village of Mały Płock on the fifth / seventeenth day of August in the year one-thousand eight-hundred fifty-four at the hour of ten in the morning. There appeared Karol Samul, a peasant farmer residing in Niksowizna, thirty years of age, in place of the midwife, in the presence of Łukasz Alicki, forty years of age, together with Błażej Żelazny, thirty-nine years of age, both farmers from Niksowizna, and he showed Us a child of the female sex, born in Niksowizna yesterday at the hour of three in the afternoon of Teresa née Gumieńska Dymek, residing with her mother on their farm ‡, wife of Jan Dymek, a soldier in the Imperial Russian Army, about twenty-four years of age. To this child at Holy Baptism performed on this day was given the name Maryanna, and her Godparents were the afore-mentioned Karol Samul and Katarzyna Kuzakowa. This document was read aloud to the declarant and witnesses who do not know how to write.
[signed] The Reverend Julius Kulisz, pas[tor] of Mały Płock
There is a marginal notation because the priest forgot to mention the age of the mother in the text of the record:
‡ twenty years of age J Kulisz
The father, Jan Dymek, was not present because he was away from home, serving as a soldier in the Imperial Russian Army. If the father is not present, the midwife who delivered the child is usually the declarant. In this case, the Godfather presented the child in place of the midwife.
