For Peder top of page left.
Is it Dom 2 epiph (Jan 14) or Epiphany (Jan 6)?
What's the words/date for Barbra's introduction?

Thanks, Carol

There is no Peder on the left page top -- but there is one on the right page.

The second line appears to say 'f. (something abbreviated) 6th Jan. Most likely means born 6th Jan.
Therefore your FIRST choice for the baptism date would be appropriate.

The last word in the mother's introduction detail is unknown to me but it also appears to be an abbreviation.

whoops, sorry I need to re-learn my right from left.
I think I just figured out that abbreviation for the introduction while I was looking at the calendar of holidays again.
Gesim is at the end of three words there: Septuagesima, Sexagesima, Quinquagesima.
So 7 gesim must be 11 Feb.

You just meant the famous "other left"... thanks, a chuckle is good for us.

Seems like good logic. If I had to write Septuagesima, Sexagesima, or Quinquagesima repeatedly I'd probably find a clever abbreviation too. I'd just never seen that one.
