This document was read to the declarant and witnesses and signed by us. The father and witnesses do not know how to write –

Franciszek Wincenty’s father, Paweł, was a day laborer. Unlike his wife, Rozalia Burska, he was not born to a noble family. Since nobility was passed from father to son, none of his children were of noble birth, despite Rozalia’s noble birth.
This record begins on the bottom of one page and ends on the top of the next. The priest signed both portions of the record and repeated the words “Akt ten” or “This document” in both places.
