On 21 Mar 1734, Katarzyna 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 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.
