On 31 December 1713, Barbara Niedziałkowska, sister of my 5th great grandfather Ignace Niedziałkowski, was baptized.

Click on the link for a PDF copy of the Birth and Baptismal Record of Barbara Niedzialkowska – 1713. Translated from the Latin, the record states:


In the same year [1713] on the 31st day, the same baptized a girl Barbara born of the married Krzysztof Niedziałkowski and Konstancja Żaboklicka. The Godparents were Jakub Smolenski and Konstancja Żaboklicka.

As with other records from Klonowo, this record refers to a previous record to discover the month and year of the event and the name of the priest who presided over the event.

The relevant record begins:

Header for Baptism of Barbara Niedzialkowska - 1713

In the year of the Lord 1713 [on the 17th day] of December,
Rev. St[anisław] Uzdowski

While the relevant record is not entirely clear, it is sufficient to be able to identify the month and year as xbris (December) 1713. The name of the priest is still difficult to discern, but other records on the same page clearly show that the name of the priest was Stanisław Uzdowski. Now I should go back to some of the records I previously translated to see if Rev. Uzdowski presided over other Niedziałkowski baptisms.

Note that the Godmother is Konstancja Żaboklicka – the same as the maiden name of the mother. I’ll have to look in other records to see if I can identify this second Konstancja.
