Description :
Much of the life of the small German communities in the Barossa Valley centred around the local Lutheran church. Confirmation was an important step in becoming an adult member of the church. Two years of instruction under the pastor culminated in the confirmation service, with an elaborate certificate being given to each candidate to record the event. Until the First World War the classes were in German - the language of the Australian Lutheran Church at the time. The Lenger family were well-known farmers in the Mannum district. At one time, Emma Lenger's parents ran a boarding house in the town.
