numbers in church records
« on: juni 19, 2018, 07:17:25 pm »

In Munsala’s church records for 1881, it indicates that on May 23, Johan Henrik Andersson Kengo (834, 22 år) married Anna Lovisa Jakobsdotter Pensar (834, 21 år). When their oldest son Anders was confirmed in 1897, the number 180 is given before his name. The same number appears on Anna Lovisa’s death certificate. I would appreciate it if someone could explain what these numbers (834, 180) refer to!

Numbers 834 and 180 are references to which page in the communion book the family is.
