*Lists two categories of "Cateohumeni" or confirmands instead of communicants. 
Prepared by: P Hasselbacher, Sept 2013

We find the names of Peter, his mother Helena Barbara, and brother Balthasar three times each, although not on the same days. Brother Georg Conrad appears in the lists twice, although for the first time as a confirmand. I will show that list elsewhere in case someone can confirm my interpretation and explain the two different categories of individuals.

Attendance at church varied and was less than I expected. The 23d Day after Trinity was a big day for the church with 110 people counted. I am not aware that this was a particularly special holy day.  As I looked at the list again later, I saw that there were only 39 in married pairs, widowers, or widows.  All the rest were "singles."  I suspect that this was a day for confirmations/first commnions. Georg Conrad's name appears here, perhaps as a communicant for the first time.  This hypothesis can be tested at a future visit.
