Translation of Birth Record of Karolina Raudonat No. 30


 Village Obszruty community of Wiłkowyszki


 It took place in the Government city of Wiłkowyszki on May 18/30, 1847 at 3:00 o’clock afternoon.  In front of us, the signed Priest Lange, the Pastor, and Administrator of the Evangelic Branch in Wiłkowyszki, presented himself Michał Raudonat, farmer, 30 years old, in the presence of Jan Kubat, farmer, 30 years old, and Filip Szweicer, inn-keeper, 50 years old, all of them witnesses residing in the village Obszruty, and he has presented to us a female child, born in there, today, at 2:00 o’clock at night, from his wife Barbara nee Henning, 25 years old.  To this child on the Holy Christening performed today was given the name Karolina, and her godparents were the above mentioned Jan Kubat with Maria Szweicer.  This document, after being read to the present, was signed only by us, because they didn’t know how to write.   X. Lange A. Pastor


 Translator’s Note: The X. stands for “Ksiądz” in Polish which means “Priest” in English.

About suwalkigermans

I started family research in 1993. My first two books focused on my maternal grandparents. Both families came from Kreis Rosenberg, West Prussia, to Big Rapids, Michigan. I left the Spurgats from Wylkowiszki in the Russian Empire as the third book because of the difficult and challenging research it required. After I published the book in 2010, I wondered what to do next. I thought I might try to share some of my research with others and maybe at the same time, by going digital, someone would find me. When you read the comments, you will see that happened. The best part of all this is helping others.
