Thanks Luca, very interesting, does this mean 'recognition of an illegitimate son'
i.e. Someone is owning up to being the child's father/mother?

Often a son was recognized later if the man in question had no heirs with the woman he married. Or he married the mother later in life and then recognized the son formally (instead of adopting him).
I am actually researching a family where this happened.
