Among the records I found in the microfilms at my local Family History Center on Saturday was the birth record of Teofil Niedziałkowski, son of my third great grandparents, Antoni Niedziałkowski and Karolina Milewska. Teofil was born on 26 Feb 1852 in Godacze, Maków Powiat, Łomża Gubernia, Congress Kingdom of Poland. He was baptized on 29 Feb 1852 in the parish of Saint John the Baptist in Krasne.
