The Baptism of Katarzyna Niedziałkowska – 1734

On 21 Mar 1734, Katarzyna Niedziałkowska, sister of my 5th great grandfather Ignace Niedziałkowski, was baptized.

The Baptismal Record of Katarzyna Niedziałkowska – 1734

SOURCE: Parafia Św. Gotarda (Pałuki, Ciechanów County, Mazovian Voivodeship, Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth). Liber Baptisatorum ab Anno 1716 ad 1740 et Copulatorum ab Anno 1723 ad 1747, Księga II, p. 51, Katarzyna Niedziałkowski baptism (1734); FHL microfilm 1,496,612, item 11.

Click on the link for a PDF copy of the Birth and Baptismal Record of Katarzyna Niedziałkowska – 1734. Translated from the Latin, the record states:


On the 21st day of March I, Antoni Smosarski,  baptized a girl Katarzyna born of the noble Krzysztof Niedziałkowski and Konstancja, legitimately married.. The Godparents were Walenty Łoszewski and Przeciszewska. [one word] x x

As with other records from Klonowo, this record refers to a previous record to discover the year of the event.

The relevant record begins:


In the year of the Lord 1734

At the end of the record is a word (or possibly two words) that I can’t figure out. The word(s) are followed by two letters “X”, suggesting that someone signed this record. This is odd, since I haven’t seen any other records from this parish where anyone signed the record.

Also rather odd is the fact that, apparently, only the surname of the Godmother is provided.

    I do not have your email address, but I would ask for you to read my article on Cow Hampshire, as you should be concerned about your own blog since your blog cache too is included in’s database.


  2. Hi Janice,

    Thanks for the heads-up. I didn’t realize that Ancestry had placed my blog in a cache on their servers.
