The Death and Burial of Agnieszka Obidzińska – 1782

On 24 Dec 1782, Agnieszka Obidzińska, my first cousin six times removed, was buried in the cemetery in Pałuki in Powiat ciechanowski, Województwo mazowieckie, Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. She was the daughter of Józef Obidziński and Katarzyna Niedziałkowska.

Click on the image above to enlarge it. Click on the link for a PDF copy of the Burial Record of Agnieszka Obidzinska. Translated from the Latin the record states:

Name of Village: Obidzino
Name and Status of the Deceased: Noble Agnieszka Obidzińska
Year of Death: 1782
Month and Day of Burial: 24 Dec
Age and Place of Burial: Age 20, buried in the cemetery
Names of Parents: the Nobles Józef and Katarzyna Obidziński
Sacraments Received: All
Cause of Death: Unknown
Name of Parish Priest: Stanisław Ostrowicki

I could not read all the words in Latin, although I think I understand all the content of this record. I’ll have to look at other pages on the microfilm to see if any are more legible.

These records are the first I’ve seen from this part of Poland (north of Warsaw) that were maintained in a columnar format. Most were maintained in a paragraph form.
