I have located a birth record that I believe to be my great grandmothers. Could someone please translate this record for me into English? It is one small paragraph. The record is on the middle of the first page. Her name is "Miina". Thanks.

Miina (born 14th of May, babtized 15th of May 1882 in Lappajärvi)

The text in the middle is her parents and godparents:

P (parents) "itsellinen" (means a certain occupation in Finnish rural community. He lived in a farm owned by someone else and paid for his living in cash or by work. He earned his living mainly by other means than farming, e.g. handicraftsman.) Juho Juhonpoika (i.e. Juho´s son) Hautamäki and his wife Liisa Jaakontytär (i.e. Jaakko´s daughter) T (godparents) farmer Antti Erkinpoika (i.e. Erkki´s son) Rantakangas and his wife Kaisa Jaakontytär (i.e. Jaakko´s daughter) babtized in Windala vicarage by G.A. Rydman

Thanks for the translation. So the parents are Juhonpoika Hautamäki and Liisa Jaakontytär?

Father´s name is Juho Hautamäki (Juhonpoika is a patronyme, meaning that his father was also Juho).
Mother´s name is Liisa Jaakontytär (Jaakontytär is also a patronyme). Liisa had no surname, which was very common in Finland in those days.
