Available confirmation records are included in the VKP births database. They are indicated by a C in the page column. The following explanatory note appears in the Births Search preamble
Note: A search will bring up both Births and Confirmations. The letter C in the page column instead of a page number identifies the entry as a Confirmation that took place in the year noted with the film number. For Confirmations, the Event Place has the form "B- xxx, C or R place- yyy", where xxx stands for the Birth Place, and yyy stands for either the Confirmation Place or the Residence Place depending on which one is given in the confirmation record

> "B" = born and "C or R place" means christened or registered?
> 2) Is there any evidence/knowledge of a migration of families moving back
> west (from Luck/Torczyn area) to Lublin in the 1890s? I am still trying to
> grapple with my grandmother older siblings being born in Pawlow (1888 -
> 1895) and her saying she was Lublin (born 1901); they emigrated to Canada in

> Canada (Ebenezer via Winnipeg) around 1890. Their appear to be other Pries

> I also want to point out that Jim led me to a Pries family that went from

> Again, thank you all.
