Are you making certain you have the right gender for the ancestor in that baptismal record? A researcher connected a baptismal record to her one ancestor. One problem, the name on the record is male name in the language in which the records are written and the record clearly uses the word for “son” and not “daughter.”

If you don’t know the language, find out. The mess you end up with otherwise could be of your own making.
