Baptismal Information for Laudislaus Mazur from a Polish Church Record Index
   The names in these records are Latin.  I needed to know that Walter in English was Wladyslaw in Polish and Laudislaus in Latin.  I could also do a search using just the last name, Mazur, and the names of his parents Stanislaus, and Katarzyna Novak. ( Entering "Stan*" and "Novak" in the search boxes produced the result I was looking for.), which holds the records I accessed, describes the records as being written in Polish, but the names in the index are Latin.

 This is a transcription of the index from the Poland, Tarnow Roman Catholic Diocese Church Books, 1612 -1900 found at, enrtry for Laudislaus Mazur
  Laudislaus Mazur, baptism July 4, 1884 in Slupiec, Slupiec, Krakow, Poland, House Number 44,  Father Stanislaus Mazur, Mother Catharina Nowak. Volume Beginning Year 1840, Volume Ending Year 1884. Gender  female

The microfilm containing these church records, can be ordered from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah, for viewing at a Family History Center near my home.
