Leonard Slip's Baptism in Germany

I found Leonard Slip's baptismal record in registers of the Catholic church at Scheinfeld, Mittelfranken, Bavaria, Germany. They show that he was baptized as Johann Leonard Schlepp on 21 August 1748, a son of Johann Georg Schlepp (Schloepp) and his wife Magdalena. Leonard had an older brother with the same name who was born in 1741 and died in 1746.

Held by Archiv des Erzbistums Bamberg (Archive of the Archbishopric of Bamberg), Regensburger Ring 2, D – 96047 Bamberg, Germany. The records are written in Latin.
