I'm trying to fill in some blanks in my family history, but I can't read the handwriting on these records from Ikaalinen. :( Would someone be so kind to just translate the names in order on these. The dates are legible and easy enough for me to read. I would appreciate the help. These are in regard to Kaisa Tuomaantytär Suomijärvi, b. 11.11.1750 and Matti Matinpoikä Otava, b. 22.1.1751.

Thank-you, Jaska! I tried making a stab at it myself but the only names that stood out were Sigfredsson and Walborg! :D I appreciate your time and effort on this one. You are truly quite amazing!
