CONFIRMATIONS, 1878-1921

See also: History
The following confirmation records came from the church's record book. Classes from 1866 to 1877 are missing. Confirmations from those years were under the pastorage of Rev. Hakan Olsen, and notes confirm there were classes from 1866 to 1877 but they have not been found. Lutheran confirmations usually occur around the age of 14, although adult confirmations, usually converts, can occur.
