Clarence Eduard Huber Baptism Certificate.

I’ll admit it, I don’t read German.  I try my best but sometime the characters don’t scan correctly to my eye.  Either way for Amanuensis Monday, I’ve given it my best shot but still come up just a tad short.  I really love Google Translate.  It is simple to use and you can usually get the gist of a message enough to change the Google Translation to English by adding syntax.  It is a simple baptism certificate but there are two words that elude me. First is gu or gee or something like that.  Now I suspect is means at or in in this context.  But it would be good to know for certain it doesn’t mean “near” or something like that.

The second word seems to be to be “daselbit” to me.  It must be some kind of parents but I can’t figure out what it means.  It might make a difference in where the Baptism actually occurred.

Anyone who knows what the meanings are, please post a comment and let me know.
