Martha Zvingis nee Balvocius birth document - Maigai / Vieksniai / Telšiai County / Lithuania

My great-grandmother was Martha Zvingis nee Balvocius. Her daugher, my grandmother, was Bertha Bronislava Laukaitis nee Zvingis.  Digging out of my in-process stack, here is a doc received concerning her birth. Note for the naysayers, although I haven't posted the full tree, the names all match on father and mother for other docs I have received. For an amateur genealogist that's a w00t moment!
Morta Balvočiūtė was born 12 of March, 1893 in Maigai village Viekšniai parish and was baptize 16 of March in Viekšniai Catolic curch. Parents were peasants Leonas Balvočius and Ona, maiden name Petrauskaitė. God parents were Kazimieras Molis and Ona Gerikaitė.
Here's a link to Maigai .  Note the ancestral Balvocius cemetary! http://www.weekendgenealogy.com/2015/04/maigai-near-krakiai-vieksniai-mazekiai.html ....
