Hi,

It's nice to be here, I have been reading through posts and have learned so much! Here is my situation: I am a hobby genealogist who is working on a friend's family tree. Their great-grandfather, Arkadiusz Karaskiewicz, was from Ladek and immigrated to England in the early 20th century. I found his baptism certificate online but what is different about this certificate is that it appears to be a certification created in 1908 of a baptism that took place in 1878.

I have attempted to translate the document on my own (using other translations from this forum) but am stuck on certain words and names. Here is my attempt:

In the year of our Lord 1878 day 13 of January, I, Maximilianus, curate of the Ladek parish baptized the baby named Arcadium (BLANK) born of the same month in the tenth morning hour the son of (BLANK) and (BLANK) of (BLANK) legitimately married Karaskiewicz. (BLANK) (BLANK) of people in Ladek. The sponsors/godparents were Paulus (BLANK) and Agnes (BLANK).

(BLANK) in Ladek day 24 July 1908 (BLANK)

(BLANK) (BLANK) parish curate Ladek


Any word that I have substituted with the word "BLANK" is what I'm stuck on. Also, I'm not sure I translated everything else correctly to begin with.

I appreciate whatever help is available, thank you so much in advance!

Violet


Hi Violet,

The document is typical of many certificates of birth and baptism. The major difference between this certificate and some other certificates is that this one is completely handwritten in paragraph style whereas others use a printed fill-in-the-blanks format. The information originally was entered into the parish baptismal register. The data was extracted from the register and issued as a certificate. A certificate could be issued at any time after the event took place. Usually a person would request a certificate when that person wanted to marry or needed civil proof of birth for some other reason.

You did a good job translating the Latin. However, the certificate does contain some Latin idioms which can be a bit tricky to put into good English. A good example is the phrase “de gentium”, which can mean “of the people”. However, the word gens, gentis had a more specific meaning which can be translated “of the family/clan”. As an example, Julius Caesar belonged to the Julian gens (family/clan) and his successor, Augustus, belonged to the Octavian gens (family/clan). In the certificate the word is to be construed with Karaskiewicz and means “of the family of Antoni and Karolina Karaskiewicz.

Given names in the document will be given in their Polish version with the English version in parentheses. I am not sure of some surnames as written in the certificate.

I hope that both you and your friend find the translation helpful.

Wishing you success,

Dave

Here is the translation.

Top: Certificate of Birth and Baptism

Left Margin: Lądek #10
Body of Certificate: On the 13th day of January in the Year of Our Lord 1878, I, Maksymian (Maximilian) (surname illegible due to damaged document), the curate of the parish of Lądek, baptized an infant by the name of Arkadiusz Franciszek (Arcadius Francis), born on the 9th day of the same month at the 10th hour in the morning, the son of the legitimate marriage of Antoni (Anthony) and Karolina (Caroline) nee Brzuskiewicz(?), sowers* (or) shoemakers* (&) farmers of the Karaskiewicz family in Lądek. The sponsors were Paweł (Paul) Formziński(?) and Agnieszka (Agnes) Marcinkowska.
Given in Lądek on the 24th day of July 1908.

Parish seal & signature: Rafal (Raphael) P??cholski, curate of the parish of Lądek.

Note: It is difficult to be certain of one letter due to the priest’s handwriting. The word is found in the fifth line of the body of the certificate and appears to be either “satorum” or “sutorum”, both of which are the Genitive Plural forms of two legitimate Latin words. If the Latin is “satorum” (from sator, satoris, m. sower) then the occupation was “sowers”. If the Latin is “sutorum” (from sutor, sutoris, m. shoemaker), then the occupation was “shoemakers”. Since they were also farmers (agricolarum) I would opt for “sowers”. Often individuals farmed for themselves but also did service for the major landowner. It is quite possible that Antoni farmed his own fields and also was a sower for the landowner. The other occupation, shoemaker, is also possible but seems less likely.

Hi Dave,

I simply cannot thank you enough, this is more information that I could have ever hoped for! My friend will indeed find this helpful but in all honesty, as the hobby genealogist of the two, I'm the one who's become obsessed to unhealthy degrees with the Latin document in question. Smile

The Karaskiewicz who was baptized (Arkadiusz) listed his father as a "cattle dealer" on his marriage certificate (issued in England in 1909) so your guess at "sowers" is right on the money.

Once again, thank you so much, I am very grateful for your time and effort.

Violet

Hi Christine,

Based on the number of words in the marriage record one would expect to find a substantial amount of significant genealogical information contained therein. That is not the case. The lines which begin with “Ego” and end with “Voycinensis” contain the titles of the priest who blessed the marriage---something genealogically irrelevant. (I’ll not bother translating his titles.) The lines beginning with “praemissis”and ending with “Canonico” are simply legal housekeeping. A few bits of useful information follow within more legal housekeeping. Anyway, here is the translation minus the priest’s titles.

With the hope that you find it useful,

Dave

Hi,

Hope you find it helpful.
