Marriage, death, confirmands, as well as baptisms comprise this book. Death records very often specify the birth place and biographical information, valuable data difficult to find elsewhere. A child's birthdate appears in Confirmands through 1942, and Baptisms (nearly 100%). This is significant because vital records registration at the county level only began in late 1877 but didn't reach 90% compliance until 1916 when a penalty was added to the law for not registering. As with most small town congregations, families are often interrelated. A genealogical clue lacking for one member might be found in that of a relative!
