What does the name "Kraase" mean?
Can anyone tell me about the surname "Kraase?"
I have an ancestor that doesn't follow the Danish custom of the patronymic pattern. The lineage is: Peder Kristensen 1789-1899, Jens Pedersen Kraase 1815-1894, then Mette Marie Jensen 1813-1850. So, where does "Kraase" come from?
