Justyna Zygmuntowicz was the half-sister of my second great-grandmother, Ksawera Zygmuntowicz. She was born on 17 September 1849 in Skierki, Przasnysz Powiat, Płock Gubernia, Congress Kingdom of Poland, and she was baptized on 18 September 1849 in the Roman Catholic Church in Przasnysz, Przasnysz Powiat, Płock Gubernia, Congress Kingdom of Poland.

Skierki. This happened in the city of Przasnysz on the sixth/eighteenth day of September in the year one-thousand eight-hundred forty-nine at the hour of one in the afternoon. Stanisław Zygmuntowicz appeared, a farmer from Skierki, twenty-seven years old, in the presence of Jan Kwasniewski, eighty years old, and Józef Kłoszewski, forty-five years old, both servants of the church residing in Przasnysz, and he showed us a female child born in Skierki yesterday at the hour of three in the afternoon of his wife Anna née Imielska, twenty-eight years old. At Holy Baptism performed today, this child was given the name Justyna, and the Godparents were: Bernard Gołoczewski and Anna Kowalska. This document was read aloud to the declarant and witnesses who are unable to write, and it was signed by us.
