      I don't see the name Aleksander, though I do see Maszynski.

      I would add that the father was a "Controller" with the Straz
      Skarbowa, loosely translated as the Treasury Guard (revenue
      enforcement), though in reading various descriptions online, the Straz
      Skarbowa also guarded the border.

      The father's name was (in Latin) "Lucius Henricus Gornisiewicz", son
      of Tadeusz and Wanda Barb.

      I'm not sure of Lucius is Lucjan or "Lucjusz" in Polish. Henricus, of
      course would be "Henryk".

      Tadeusz's mother's name is more difficult to figure out. It starts
      with Pa..., daughter of Jozef Kasprzyk and Agnieszka Kempa.

      The names of the godparents appear to be ...Kmiecik (on the fold),
      Controller of Treasury Guard, and Angela Marzec, girl.

      I'm sending my more complete notes to Chris under separate cover.

      In my research, I came across an interesting site called:
      "Genealogy of Halychyna / Eastern Galicia", which includes a guide to
      deciphering Latin records in Eastern Galicia (which Lwow was a part
      of). The page is run by a Matthew Bielawa.

      The web address is: http://www.halgal.com
      and should probably be added to our Genealogy Resources portion on
