[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Some help with some images

I wonder ifs what we see as 97 could actually be 37, a very sloppy 3.
And "gem. Janikowie" may be Janikowic.

  Hi Sarah,
      You are very close on many of your assumptions.  Here's some more detail that I can add:
  Column 1:  Record number
  Column 2:  Christening date and time - 25 April morning at 9:00
  Column 3:  Normally the name and age of the father.  However, in this case, a place is also given, implying that the father does not live in the place where the christening took place.  The place name of Marjonowie is followed by what looks like "gem. Janikowie" which would mean a location within or very near Maryanowie. Not sure what the last number means, but it does look like a 97.  Compare the time of the christening with the number, ad there is some doubt about it being a 97. Not sure what it might be, though.  Compare also with the date of the birth.  Might a 57 if the right-hand side of the top half of the numeral is assumed to be a piece of dust of something else no part of the number.  There are several examples of the number 5 elsewhere in the first two entries on the page that show similarities if you discount that faint mark.
  Column 4:  godparents.
  Column 5:  Gender of the child
  Column 6:  date of bith and time; 29 Mar midday 12:00
  Column 7: name and age of the mother
  Column 8:  Given name of the child
  Column 9:  presumably the name of the godmother

  The third entry on the page is in a different handwriting, so we can't use anything from that entry for comparison purposes.

  Good luck!

  I recently got a copy of some parish records.  I'm not exactly sure where
  the images are from (I will find out), but they were from someone who believed
  that they were the right records for my family.
  Here is the link to one of
  The first line in the image is a birth record for
  Gottlieb Jesswein. I am pretty sure that he is my great-great-great grandfather.
  I just want to verify that I am reading the document correctly since my German
  is pretty limited. Information I do know: I have a Polish document (created in
  1936) from family records. We had it translated and it verifies that the
  Gottlieb Jesswein in my family was born the 29th of March 1840 to the parents
  George Jesswein and Katharina Schulz in Marjanowie (or possibly Marjanowic).

  Here is my best guess at what the document in the link above says. Any
  corrections and help are welcome.
  Column #1 = Record NumberColumn #2 = 25 Apr
  and then it says something else--not sure whatColumn #3 = The place (it looks
  close to Marjanowie) and Father's name (George Jeswein) followed by something
  else, possibly his age. I would have guessed the number is 97 but that isn't
  likely.Column #4 = 2 names and ages? -- I'm guessing they are godfathersColumn
  #5 = Says whether it is a son or daughterColumn #6 = Some more dates -- To me it
  looks like it says 29 March but then it has some more info again.Column #7 =
  Mother's name of Catharina nee Schultz with a number, possibly 36Column #8 =
  Gottlieb (child's given name)Column #9 = Anna Rosina Schmittke -- possibly
  Thanks for your help,
  Sarah Nielsen
