A son, Ludwik, was born to my 3rd great grandparents, Antoni Niedziałkowski and Karolina Milewska, on 16 Jan 1834 in Godacze, Ciechanów District, Płock Governorate, Congress Kingdom of Poland. He was baptized three days later, an unusually long time for people to wait in this time and place. Perhaps the weather in January was especially bad at the time and the family could not get to the church to have Ludwik baptized sooner.

This entry is another one of the Niedziałkowski family records from Krasne parish that I have not yet translated and posted, even though I’ve had this record for several years.
This birth was recorded 26 years after the birth of Ludwika Niedziałkowska I posted yesterday. The births were recorded in the same parish, but in 1808 the parish was located in Krasne, Przasnysz Powiat, Płock Departament, Duchy of Warsaw, and in 1834 the parish was located in Krasne, Ciechanów Powiat, Płock Gubernia, Congress Kingdom of Poland.
As a final note, the name of the parish was Parafia Podwyższenia Krzyża Świętego, translated as Parish of the Elevation of the Holy Cross.
