I have two certificates for an Elisabeth Adelina Kessel.One is a christening certificate and the other is a confirmation certificate.I found these at an auction and would like to get them to the right family.
They are written in German.Information appears to be as follows (given my little background in the language):
Christening: Elisabeth Adelina Kessel born 10 NOv 1888 in May(?) Township, ILL.Parents:Tochter von Heinrich Kessel and Rosina Haefner.Christened on 3 March 1889 in the Evangelical Lutheran Immanuels.There is a Barbara Lisette Haefner listed as well (possibly a godmother?)
Confirmation: Elisabeth Adelina Kessel born 10 Nov 1888.Confirmed 5 Apr 19003 in the Evangelical Lutheran Immanuels Church in Brooklyn Twp, Lee Co., IL
The documents are framed and measure about 13X17, frame included.
Given the fact that you posted info on a Kessel family that was in this area of Ilinois at one time, I thought maybe you might know this family.Any help you can give would be appreciated.
