The record is on the right page (15), first line.

Thank you!

It reads:

Month and year: 9 Aprilis [1805] P. Methusius Novak Curatus

House number: 6

Baptizand: Joannes Kubata

Religion: catholic

Sex: male

Status: legitimate

Midwife: Maria Fritz from Paschnowitz

Father: Leonard, son of Joseph Kubata and Dorthea Hlach. Tenant/renter, assignable to Hohenfurth [?, maybe todays Vyšší Brod].

Mother: Maria, daughter of Franz Lageder [?] and Maria Gigmoser from Paschnowitz number 6 [todays Pasinovice; just south of Střížov/Driesendorf].

Godparents: Joseph Zitek, farmer from Mogrilom [also south of Střížov/Driesendorf], Maria Zitek


My own remarks set in [square brackets].

He was baptized on 9th of April 1805, but one can assume that he was born just a day or two before his baptization.

Corresponding map:

Keep in mind that the correct location term is "Kingdom of Bohemia" (not Czech Republic!), belonging to the "Austrian Empire" (1804-1867, at the time of his baptization.

In their time and their language: "Königreich Böhmen, Kaisertum Österreich".

Maternal grandparents are Franz Kapaur and Maria Zigroser. I would also look for spelling Gabauer when looking for a marriage record.

And yes, Hohenfurth is Vyšší Brod, that does not mean they lived there, they were just subservient to Hohenfurth, they lived in Paschnowitz # 6.

thank you.  Where does the name "Gabauer" come from?  Why do you think the mother Dorothea Hlach doesn't have a reference to her parents?
K/G and P/B are often interchangeable at this time in the records, so are T/D. I always look for the corresponding letters when searching for entries. As for Dorothea Hlach, she is the grandmother of the child and that is how far back the entries go; if you look at the other entries, they all only list the grandmother. I guess you'll have find the marriage record to get to her parents.
