 Confirmations, Birmingham, Angleterre, 1915 à 1931

Cette base de données contient les registres des confirmations de plusieurs paroisses des environs de Birmingham. La confirmation est généralement administrée bien plus tard que le baptême et affirme l’attachement, représenté par le baptême, d’une personne à la christianité ; par conséquent, la majorité des personnes nommées dans ces registres sont des adolescents ou des jeunes adultes.

Both the British government and the church had an interest in record keeping, and a 1538 act of Parliament required ministers in the Church of England to record baptisms, marriages, and burials. Confirmations, another church rite, have also been recorded, and the confirmation registers from many of the parishes in Birmingham make up this database.

Over time, what is now called confirmation in the Church of England became a separate rite from baptism, as a bishop needed to perform the confirmations, and bishops could not attend all baptisms. Confirmation now usually comes later in life and affirms one’s commitment to the Christian life represented by baptism. Thus, most of the people named in these registers are teenagers and young adults.
