The third record I found in the microfilms at my local Family History Center Saturday was birth and baptismal record of Rozalia Niedziałkowska, another daughter of my third great grandparents, Antoni Niedziałkowski and Karolina Milewska. Rozalia was born on 24 Jun 1849 in Godacze, Maków Powiat, Łomża Gubernia, Congress Kingdom of Poland. She was baptized on 25 Jun 1849 in the parish of Saint John the Baptist in Krasne.

Godacze. It happened in the village of Krasne on the thirteenth / twenty-fifth day of June, one thousand eight-hundred forty-nine at the hour of three in the afternoon. Antoni Niedziałkowski presented himself, a farmer residing in the village of Godacze, forty years of age, in the presence of Ignace Wilkowski forty years of age, and Ferdynand Szuszczyński twenty-four years of age, both farmers residing in the village of Godacze, and he showed us a child of the female sex, born in the village of Godacze yesterday at the hour of eight in the evening by his wife Karolina née Milewska forty years of age. At Holy Baptism performed this day, this child was given the name Rozalia, and her Godparents were Fortunat Łyczkowski and Wiktoria Łyczkowska. This document was read aloud to the declarants and witnesses who are unable to write.
Reverend Józef Bońkowski, Pastor of the parish in Krasne
Two given names that appear in this document are names I haven’t seen before in Polish parish records: Ferdynand and Fortunat. Both of these names appear in the Big Book of Names – a listing of Polish given names – however, the frequency of these names is not provided.
