Confirmation: Coming of Age in Denmark and the US

Was born in 1889 by an unwed mother and was baptized Jensen, but later (when she came to the US) she went by Nielsen (her father's last name).

Her confirmation entry in the parish register indicates that her knowledge of Christianity was ‘average,’ but her behavior ‘very good.’ (Ane Margrethe “Kirstine” Jensen confirmation entry, Klim parish register, 1901-1909, image #97, Arkivalieronline: http://www.sa.dk/content/dk/ao-forside/find_kirkeboger).
