I have made an image to show why there is reason to think the first letter of your record might be a V.

In order, the initials here are from your record of interest, the Victoria and the Vincentius.

One can observe that while he is inconsistent in the distance between the two arms of the V, the lead-in flourish and the trailing flourish are the same for all three.

If you take the Victoria example, close the distance between the arms so they touch and reduce the size of the loop on the right arm, then you have the initial from your record of interest.

On 15/2, another boy girl named Pelagia - the mother is Victoria (for another example of the letter V).


I read the word in the column before the names as "Navito". It was written several times on the pages in the links.

The 2 signatures would that be witnesses or godparents would anyone know??
Godparents, aka sponsors. Usually one of each gender. The columns might have headings.

Thanks for that horselydown86

It certainly shares the V patterns, is that bottom one the other Vincentius you mentioned? As that too shares similarities, the beginning of the I and how far across the dot goes.. the possible CE in the Bombera one is just very close rather than slightly distances in the others.

Yes.

Isn't it the place name Nakto?  (Not Naklo as I said in Reply #1.)

I've tried finding columns but no luck

There are column headings they are just too underexposed to read. Might be able to see more of you adjust the image levels.

It looks like Nakto because it uses the Polish stroked L, ł, which actually tends to sound more like a W.
