I see you researched the Christensen family from Aarlborg. Jacob Christensen, Hans Christensen and Georg Christensen. Now I know my partner's great great grandfather was in fact Hans Christisn Christensen who was married to Elizabeth Heath and they lived in Christianshavn but we no little about their ancestors. Do you know more? Thank you.
have just joined this site - was delighted to see you have family in Aalborg! I am researching my husbands family - originally from Aalborg, Jacob Christensen abt 1780 - son Hans Christian abt 1812 - his son George Abraham abt 1858 (Copenhagen). Hans (Henry) married an English woman Elizabeth Heath from Dartmouth. We would like to visit next year and would love to know if any Christensens remain in Aalborg?? Any guidance would be great! Thankyou Rosslyn
Absolutely, any folks interested in joining SCCAPG (or who just want to learn about the organization) are most welcome. Our open meeting is on Sat. from 5-6pm in Sunset A&B in the convention center. See you there!
I left messages several places, but thought I'd try this also. Need <1900s maps that show parishes(names and area covered) within each Lan of Sweden. I know that FHL has a film with these but I have no access through the very small LDS church here. Do you know if I can find maps anyplace else? Thanks, Cheri Hopkins email@example.com
Good Afternoon, Larry. Thank you for your response about the Genline translation. I am hoping not to impose to much on you to translate some information for me. I have found three pages from Genline that I could use help with.

I appreciate your help very much. I find that relatives are so much more accepting of my genealogy ramblings when I can include information other than the born and died info.
You asked why HSJGS doesn't have their logo on our Corona Gen Soc page ... well, I emailed the webmaster for permission and am still waiting for it! I didn't put up any logos without permission first. So, that's the long & short of it. Now, assuming your question = permission, I shall make that correction ASAP. We'd love to have it listed there!! Thanks. Jean
Remember that time about 30 years ago in the Hemet Jr High office when you were talking to Dorothy about her grandparents that she could not remember? On a lark you asked me as I walked by (on my first month of teaching) who my grandparents were, and I rattled them off. You were impressed a 'young lady' knew the info! The next day you brought me a group sheet with my great grandparents listed in MN! You got me hooked!
Larry you are amazing! I struggle with reading the Swedish church documents. I can't tell you how much I appreciate this. I have been looking for my next link to bridge me to the previous generation.....you have provided it! I knew Lars' mother, but could not figure out his father's last name.
Again, thanks for the help.
Larry! If I met you today and would flat out give you a big hug!! The information you gave me proves the two sisters I thought were Mathlida's sisters really are!! I am so thrilled beyond believe. My husband thought there was something really wrong because I was screeching all over the house with every little bit of infomation you gave me. This means the world to me and I hope someday I will be able to make someone else as happy as I am now.
Larry: Would it be possible for you to copy the record for Mathilda Larsson, born 9-21-1867, Genarp 1352.13.43000 GID. You did three of the other records for me however Leif found this one as well. The Swedish naming system is confusing. Mathlida's father's name was Nils Larsson. So she could have gone by Larsson, or Nilsdotter. Yikes!
Larry: Here is what Larry found. In your books, would there be a way to scan the infomration and send them to me?
Ola Nilsson, Born 4-17-1862, Genarp. 100012.45.60300 GID
Mathilda Larsson, born 9-21-1867, Genarp 1352.13.43000 GID
Maria, born 8-31-1888, Genarp 100012.145.19300 GID
Family moved from Genarp to Skurup, Skurup 1352.13.43000 GID
Mathilda's death certificate just says she was born in Sweden. However, her obituary definately states Grenart, Sweden. Her parents name were Nils Larsson and Bengta Nilsdotter. In the states census records their last names were listed as Larson and Nelson. So confusing to me.
Hi Larry. Ole and Mathilda Nelson had a daughter, so the draft registration would not work for her.
I would love to find out what parish Mary was born into, with hopes of identifying Oles parents somehow. if you have access to that kind of information. Her name is Mary Elizabeth Nelson BAugust 31, 1888 in Malmo, Sweden, Death December 17, 1971 in Spencer, Iowa.
Looks like everything is all set for the Work Shop tomorrow. Have been getting some calls here in the Duffin Heritage Room asking questions about it, as well as a couple walk-ins. Should be an interesting day.
