The Krasne Parish Indexing Project

Despite my best intentions not to get involved in any new projects, I’ve to index the records of the parish of St. John the Baptist in Krasne, Poland.

I began these efforts after reading about the Złotów parish records indexing project that Al of the Polish-American Genealogy Research blog started.

As another impetus, I discovered that many of the early Krasne parish records do not include the indexes usually included at the end of each year’s records, forcing me to examine each record individually.

The earliest records for Krasne that have been microfilmed by the Family History Library are the parish record books from 1657. Beginning in 1808, the microfilmed records are of the civil transcripts.

On Saturday, I began to index the birth/baptismal records from 1808. I completed the index for the first 45 records. The surnames represented in these records are Boiarski, Chełchowski, Chotkowski, Gołąb, Intczak, Jakiebowski, Jakubiak, Jędrasik, Jegliński, Kaoprzak, Kieszak, Łyszkowski, Maculak, Malinowski, Mieszkowski, Milewski, Mosakowski, Mularczyk, Niedziałkowski, Obicziński, Piotrak, Pukrowski, Smurlika, Sobiesiak, Stępnowski, Suski, Szarlik, Trzaska, Wudziński, Zaleski, Zarodkiewicz, Zbikowski, and Zbyszyński.

These births occurred in the villages of Kozino, Krasne, Milewo Brzegędy, Milewo Gawary, Milewo Saweyki, Mosaki Godacze, Mosaki Rukle, Mosaki Stara wieś, Slasy Łozyno, Szczuki, Zalesie, Zbiki Antosy, Zbiki Filipy, Zbiki Gawronki, Zbiki Pańskie, and Zbiki Starki.

The surnames I know are in my own family history include Chotkowski, Milewski, and Niedziałkowski. The villages in which my ancestors resided include Mosaki Godacze, Mosaki Rukle, and Mosaki Stara wieś.

Initially, I’ve decided to include the following information in the index:  Surname, Given Name, Father’s First Name, Father’s Age, Mother’s Maiden Name, Mother’s First Name, Mother’s Age, Date of Birth, Place of Birth, House Number, Date of Baptism, Parish, FHL Film Number, Item Number, and Page.

I’m not including Occupations, Names of Godparents, Name of Priest, Information About Witnesses, or other information in the records.

I expect to finish the index for births/baptisms in 1808 this week.

Thanks, Al, for the inspiration to start this project!

    Hi Steve,

    I’m happy to have been able to provide some inspiration for yor new project. I feel that providing indexes for others to use can help others in their genealogy searches. It also provides the indexer with insight into the surrounding community that attended the parishes.

    Thanks, Steve, for increasing my awareness in proper citations, I just order the book titled “Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace” by Elizabeth Shown Mills. I can’t wait to start restructuring my sourcing citations, is all in the proof!
