Christenings, 1884-1900
Nain Lutheran Church
Rolfe, Pocahontas County, Iowa

Nain Lutheran was a predominately Danish congregation, with a couple of Norwegians in the mix. In 1948 the church merged with another congregation, Trinity Lutheran, and became St. Paul Lutheran in Rolfe. The records below were transcribed from pages handwritten in Danish--I apologize for any errors.
