[Mosaki] Rukle. This happened in the village of Krasne on the fourteenth / twenty-sixth day of December in the year one-thousand eight-hundred forty-four at the hour of two in the afternoon. There appeared Błażej Chodkowski, owner of a part [of the village] thirty years of age, residing in the village of [Mosaki] Rukle, accompanied by Franciszek Niedziałkowski, thirty years of age together with Walenty Niedziałkowski, sixty years of age, both owners of a part [of the village] and residing in the village of [Mosaki] Rukle, and he showed us a child of the male sex born in [Mosaki] Rukle on the eleventh / twenty third day of December of this same year at the hour of ten in the morning of his wife Agnieszka née Łyszkowska, twenty-three years of age. To this child at Holy Baptism performed on this day was given the name Adam, and his Godparents were Marcin Mieszkowski and Zuzanna his wife. This document was read aloud to the declarants and witnesses who do not know how to write.
[signed] The Reverend Piotr Bączkowski, Vicar of Krasne
Adam Chodkowski was my 2nd cousin, 4X removed.
The two witnesses, Franciszek Niedziałkowski and Walenty Niedziałkowski are also probably related to me because I know I had Niedziałkowski ancestors living in Mosaki Rukle in this same time period. I do not, however, have these two people in my database. I’ll have to search further to learn who these two men were.
