Description

The document is a church attest from Jacob Naumann's pastor in Wiebelskirchen, certifying Naumann as a member in good standing of the local Lutheran congregation and asking all Lutheran pastors in the U.S. to receive him into their congregations. The document itself dates from 1854, likely issued just before Nauman's emigration, but includes Naumann's birth date of 1832 and those of his parents.
