A daughter named Pelagia was born to my 2nd great grand uncle Ludwik Niedziałkowski and his wife Józefa Pomaska on 16 January 1869. Ludwik was, in turn, the brother of my 2nd great grandfather, Wojciech Niedziałkowski.

It happened in the ecclesiastical village of Szwelice on fifth [Julian Calendar] / seventeenth [Gregorian Calendar] day of January in the year one thousand eight hundred sixty nine at the hour of twelve o’clock in the afternoon. Ludwik Niedziałkowski presented himself, thirty-six years of age, heir to a part [of the village], living in Pomaski, in the presence of Jan Pomaski, fifty years of age, and Marcin Mossakowski, fifty years of age, heirs to a part [of the village] living in Pomaski. He showed Us a child of the female sex, declaring that she was born in Pomaski yesterday at the hour of ten o’clock in the evening, born of his wife Józefa née Pomaska, twenty-six years of age. At Holy Baptism performed this day by the Reverend Ignace Kołakowski, the child was given the name Pelagia and the Godparents were Wojciech Niedziałkowski and Ludwika Mossakowska. This document was read aloud to the declarants and witnesses and signed by Us alone because the declarants and witnesses cannot write.
Rev[erend] Ig[nacy] Kołakowski, Pastor of Szwelice
Maintaining the Public Register
This entry is one of the Niedziałkowski family records from the Szwelice parish that I have not yet translated and posted, even though I’ve had this record for several years.
The numbers above and below the name of the village indicate that the record is on page 98 and is the 4th baptism recorded in Szwelice for the year 1869.
