Can you decipher a result form a search done for Danish ancestors at arkiv.k?
I'm pretty much an expert on searching for ancestors in Denmark.so I may be able to help you with a Danish ancestor if you get stuck.I'm 59 years old and I started when I was about 13 years old. And when the Internet arrived it was a Godsend for research. Danish records are FREE and very extensi
I think I gravitated to Genealogy because my parents [and oldest brother] immigrated. to Canada in 1956 ,so I grew up with ZERO family.. Believe me YOU CAN miss what you've never had.
I hope someone can help with this. At the Danish site http://fuursamlingen.dk, if I click on KNUD CHRISTENSEN - his name is shown on a details page as KNUD CHISTENSEN %KARL%, If his surname is CHRISTENSEN why does it show CHISTENSEN %KARL%???. Should I just ignore the %KARL%? I was told it was a "placeholder" to represent a special character that the computer can't identify?
PS There are roughly 38 million people in Canada. We are the only family in all of CANADA that has the surname RANDRUP. There are about 20 of us. I have never met a RANDRUP I'm not related to. There are .small quantities of RANDRUP's in USA, (including Hawaii and Alaska) the Phillipines, Argentina, New Zealand, and Australia
.[I managed to figure out how the Philipines RANDRUPs were related to the Alaska Randrups. I sent the Alaska family an email telling them how they are linked to them]
