FamilySearch Find Of The Day: Joseph Weishaupt's Baptism

I was going through FamilySearch today, reviewing all the databases they've added lately and I stumbled upon some new Czech Republic databases. None of them related to my family, but it got me thinking about the previous database that DOES relate to my family. I have found most of everything that I possibly can with what's available, so I was reviewing some of the records I had previously found. I thought I'd share one of those records and show how thorough the Bohemian's were with their records! There are three generations listed in this single baptism record: the child, the parents and the grandparents.. maiden names and all! :)
