Was it the custom in 1870 to receive a bible as a gift when you were confirmed and made your first communion?
Who would give this gift? Was it given by the priest, the parents or Godparents?
Our family has a Swedish bible. Inside it says: To Jonas August Nilsson born Sept.15,1855, first communion July 1870 in Ukna church. Lilla Stjälkhammar
