On the 7th of December, I L. Rygalski V.E.K. baptized an infant with the name Katarzyna, born on the 6th of this same month, daughter of the nobles Wojciech Milewski and Anna, legally married. The Godparents were the noble Aleksander Grochowski and the noble Marianna Milewska, both from Malonki.
As with many of the church records from this time period in Poland, the researcher must examine preceding records to discover the year of the event, since the year is not expressly stated in the document.
In 1801, when Katarzyna was born, this area of Poland was under the control of the Kingdom of Prussia and the province in which Milewo-malonki and Karniewo was located was called New East Prussia. Control of this area by Prussia was short-lived. On 07 Jun 1807, as a result of the Napoleonic Wars, the area was incorporated into the Duchy of Warsaw, controlled by France.
