Treasure Chest Thursday: A Baptismal Certificate


This is the Certificate of Baptism for my Uncle Nick. Uncle Nick Hruszczak was one of Gigi's brothers. Their parents are listed as Pantelemon Hruszczak and Pelagia Matys. I have only ever seen them write their names like this on church records. Census papers, naturalization papers and such all list my great grandparents as Panko and Bessie.  Uncle Nick was baptized on 3 April 1921, having been born 26 March. He was baptized by Rev. Andrew Symko. His sponsors were: Stephen Martynyuk and Catherine Zadorozna. The certificate however is dated 20 October 1941 and signed by then pastor Rev. Hilary H Wroblewsky.
