Confirmation records 1896-1950 from (Hvidso) Bethania Lutheran Church (now defunct)

Records are kept at United Free Lutheran Church, Greenbush, Minnesota.

I have tried to type this as accurately as possible as written; I have not attempted to correct what seem to be errors. Some names are spelled differently in various entries. Blank columns are blank in the records, (?) is used to denote difficulty in reading handwriting or in translating from Norwegian.

Comments on the students' performance are omitted for this publication. There are no confirmations recorded before 1898.
