I'm an amateur genealogist and I have browsed through 17th and 18th century German church records in pursuit of my ancestry and I am now stuck.
My sources come from: https://www.archion.de (paid subscription needed to access sources)
I have used the following table to help me interpret the texts: https://www.archion.de/en/family-research/deutsche-schrift/alphabet-table/
What is blocking me is a birth record for a certain Henning Conrad from 1691. The reason why I believe this is my ancestor is that he is mentioned (at least that is my assumption) in his sons (whom I have much more sources for) birth record from 1716 from the same town (Gestorf). This would make Henning Conrad about 25 years of age at the age of his sons birth which is plausible.

Finally, the birth record that is troubling me:
Wa??????? Henning Conrad geborn D. 9. Martij. (... Henning Conrad, born 9th of March)

Here is the same information without the red circle:
Are any of the surrounding sentences about this same record (e.g. information about parents)?
