The Squiggle Book

or learn to read Gothic before you start with genealogy.  

It started many years ago. It was exactly in 1983 when our oldest daughter was baptized. My father told that his parents were married in Østbirk church.   

That we had to find out whether it was true. Indeed: Pastor Fosdal took wedding and wrote-off the text from the church book for us. It was written in a good old-fashioned typewriter. The side of the family, I am not advanced.   

I tried to hail scattered about where I would start with this genealogy. I wrote to some priests in the parsonage, I knew that was recognized buried. Sometimes I was lucky, other times I got a sour call from a very grumpy priest - it was certainly not something you just like that could afford to ask.   

All the small pieces of paper, half and full pages written with notes and perhaps a written reply from a priest, yes it started it all. 

It took some years, it declined slightly in the background and the children were cared for and their hobbies. But then unfortunately died aunt Elvira, my husband godmother. He must obviously have earned the succession. At least uncle Karl came over with a nice big photo of Grandma Margrete and Grandpa Laurids.
That he should have and because I had once told that I would like to genealogy research, we also got a green binder with a nearly complete record of the family Christensen, after Laurids & Margrete, with a lot of dates, birthdays and wedding dates, etc.   

But with a few words said by the grandfather Laurids' mother Anne Christine Sveigaard was killed during an overturned burning table and her husband Jens Peder Christensen emigrating to America together with the two eldest of the boys and his housekeeper in 1880. Hmmm, it is not true, but we return to later.   

The other siblings in care among different farmers or small farmers. One of the boys will be hit by lightning as he was bringing home a bull from the field during a lightning storm. Hmmm, withdrew Monday cows home in November and not much thunder in November?  

Laurids coming into care from one farmer which was milling with. He will apprentice mills and sheep, since his own mill. Yes, now it begins to resemble something that is something about the talk. I will tell the story.   

Karl has written a comment in the ring towel: "No intelligence from America or other siblings have emerged." 

Curiosity gets bigger and bigger.   

I saw some clips from Danmarks Radio about known genera history. Were told that the church records were online, yes - so I had to start. So I started to go online and Google. There I found As a site about the local area where the family came from. So it was exciting.   

Then I took a course at Rossing Ræderske evening, FOF, in Horsens in September 2006, with a teacher Hanne Bjørn. There I heard about DIS Denmark, so now I was really under way. Church books were eagerly flip on the web.   

A trip was planned with Hanne Bjørn for Archives in Viborg. It was an experience. Hanne had arranged for the detection of material for us, so it was just to start looking at the big, beautiful and heavy kirkebøger. You are in the search and read. But those 3 hours on Archives felt only 5 minutes, I think that a 14 day vacation on the bottom shelf of the large archive would be a good start. 

Information and questions put me on various websites and vupti; sitting so many nice, sweet and incredibly helpful people around who also genealogy researcher and a mass. These people are an invaluable aid, the sole is a must, is that it is welcome with a good behavior and that TAK/thank you is enough.   

All of a sudden I sat with a lot of information and just as suddenly was Christina entered into my life. Christina is a follow on New Zealand.

Poor old Mikkel is killed in a train accident at Skovby 18.08.1878. Clippings can be found at who have received it from lokalhistoriske file in Herning.

But we start with it as I really wanted to tell. For the story that was bigger and bigger. I put out with Ane Kristine Sveigaard.

Ane Kristine dies 19 February 1888. I've been sent the following report, written off by Hammerum herredsfogeds protocol by Inger and Svend Jensen, thanks for that! 

YEAR 1888 21 febr After (afternoon?) Kl. 3 Police Court was set to Jens Peder Christensens Housing at Søby Mark, Arnborg Sogn that when Judge Herreds Foged Krarup with witnesses which included the following: No. 43/1888 Forhør with Attitude on Smallholder Jens Peder Christensen's wife, Ane Kirstine Sveigaards Deaths.

The judge had today Forging Jens Nielsen received the call to Smallholder Jens Peder Christensen's wife Ane Kirstine Sveigaard the day before yesterday was found dead. Owing to Snefog and storms which made roads ufarbare the site which lies far in the unit in Arnborg Sogn
(unreadable but probably an excuse for the delay)
The judge in conjunction with District Medical Benzon-looking body that existed stripping, lying on a bed. District doctor gave Coroners certificate, copy of which was presented.

Appeared Smallholder Chr Nielsen Tusholt which explains the reason that he is the day before yesterday Kl. between 4 and 5 on the occasion of his waiting to shoulder after Midwives to his wife went to her Nearby Jens Peder Christensen to retrieve a pair of boots that he had been able to him. Chrt. Hit the ground floor only children, Jens Peder Christensen had died Skarrild on the occasion of the organization of a real estate and his wife were even home. This surprised Chrt. the children were alone at home in the Storms of Snefog as it was. Then asked the children where their mother was, they said that she was with Chrt. had she not been. Chrt. went as far to another Nearby Jørgen Sjællænder, but she was not and she was not in Chrts. Brother Jens Tusholt where they also searched her. They went on all 3 jade to the site and to see that Peat stack was passed along, it decreased Chrt. entry to see if she would be possible there. Snow was following up on the stack, so that nothing suspicious had to see.

They tried to clear the snow overridden, but that ei does something to her. They began, however, to clear the peat to the side which was a difficult task, because everything was frozen together, by facilitating a Peat aside so Chrt. Deceased's principal, and after they had received several Peat cleared away so that they lie to her stooping or nearly complete in the stomach with the head lying on its side. The position was that she had been on their knees and taken Peat, and stack's upper part is ramlet down over her and has thrown her. Lips were very swollen and ovedet the entire swelling with multiple abrasions, but otherwise there were no signs of that something was crushed or broken. The stack was Huletts out so that was taken off the regular stack bottom, so that the last part hung out as a Tag, which is held together because the peat was frozen together Chrt. assume that the weight of the moisture has been so great that the whole exercise neglected part of the thatch of an overall mass ramlet down, possible storm has also worked with them since Chrt. first came down to the children the stove was completely cold and the children were hungry, so he assumes that it was not so short a time that the deceased had been away.

Appeared Maren Christensen 10 years old, the oldest of deceased children at the occasion explained that her mother the day before yesterday afternoon at. 2 1 / 2 said that she would go out after a few Peat. She went out but came back Chrt. assumed that she had gone to one of the neighbors either Jørgen Sjællænder or Chr Tusholt who hengik well a few hours before Chr Tusholt came down to them and asked for their mother.

Appeared then Smallholder Jens Peder Christensen, who on occasion forkl. The day before yesterday that he had gone home to Skarrild around Kl. 1 in order to have organized some papers on an Estate Agents. He came because of the Storm is not home, but received bids yesterday on accident, but only reached home last night Kl. 8. he could give no other information about Cause of death beyond what he has heard of and Jens Chr Tusholt and Jorgen Sjællænder.

The judge noted that Jørgen Sjællænder today not at home, Jens Tusholt judge has today taken on the road. His explanation is quite with the Chr Tusholt deliver. The Stack is located east of the house, only about a yard from it. The upper part of stack is nedvæltet in a single mass. Incidentally, it was because of frost and snow sammenføgne difficult to accurately examine the spot.

Questioning connected, Police Court was closed.
Krarup - Jens Benzon - Dynis Jensen. 

Yes it is a sad story. But inspired by all the support from complete strangers who will take the time to write off this important document, I know that it will be spent on, but then I have to move forward with the story.  

The children are placed in care says the story and it is perhaps also true. Maren death in May 1888, just three months after mother's death.   

Jens Peder Kristensen sell the house in Sønder Søby in 1890 to 580 kroner. The story about him is that he is emigrating to America and it is perhaps something about. He lost anyway.

No trace has been found for him, he is not found in emigrant database, nor in the census are, at least not online. 

There is, however, that he takes the two biggest of the boys with me? It must be Mikkel Mikkelsen Sveigaard Kristensen, born 22.03.1880 and Kristen Mathias Peder Kristensen, born 05.11.1881. Hmmm suits it now?   

Mikkel Mikkelsen Sveigaard Kristensen, born 22.03.1880 in Uhre Kjær by fires. Home baptized 12.04.1880 and produced in Church Fires 30.10.1880. In a census in 1890 we find him with Soren Anders Sørensen and Lovis Sorensen in a house in Lund door to fire. There he service servant and 10 years old. It fits well enough.  

On 13 August 2007, I suddenly receive a mail from Gerda and Ove Christensen Giveaway. They have looked at DIS Denmark that I seek relatives by Anne Christine Sveigaard and will hear if I can help them. Mikkel here proves to be grandfather to Ove.  

D.v.s. that Mikkel Mikkelsen Sveigaard Kristensen has a child out of wedlock and paternity has been admitted in a paternity in 1903. In 1902-1904 served in Mikkel Vellinge, Smidstrup parish. He have a son, born 14.12.1903 with Bodil Margrethe Marie Borch, born 21.06.1884.

He then offers to pay for maintenance of the child, but when he only serves 220 kroner a year in addition to diet and logis, he may well not pay more than 40 kroner a year. He has no fortune of any kind but only what he serves. He is unmarried and has no more children to alimenter to. He offers derhos to pay 10 kroner to help with the costs of motherhood movement.

This last offer received complaints before, but the offer on the annual contribution, she can not receive when she should have the baby in the nursing home for Vejle county, where she in the first 2 years to provide 110 kroner a year later a little less, but how much she know not. She must therefore require 50 kroner a year by the respondent. She did not own any assets and earns only 135 kroner a year in addition to diet and logis and is not strong by itself.

Both parties agreed to apply for its size set by county resolution.

Respondent states on occasion that his full name is listed and that he was born on 22 'March 1880 Fires in the parish of the parents Jens Peter Kristensen and his wife Kristine, who was married when he was born. When he was 18 years old he served in Monrad Thomsen, St. Vellinge, Smidstrup parish where he was until May 1898. Then he had space in Bredballe, Hornstrup parish, with farm copyholder Clausen to November 1898. Then he was employed by Kyed of Julia Mountain, Engum parish to 1 'in November 1899, then from hp Kyed St. Vellinge to November 1901, then in HP Hansen, same place, to November 1902, then from Søren Knudsen for November 1903 and now has his place of 1 'in November In Holger Buhl, same place.

When he still did not have residence in St. Vellinge in 5 years, believes he is dependent on the food instead. He has not had fattighjælp, at least not according to what he knows and not after his confirmation.

We must have mikkel story finished. We think Mikkel in a census in 1916, Hejnsvig parish. By Laurine Larsen, housewife, born 04.april 1879 in Hejnsvig and their daughter Mary Kristensen, born 19.09.1914. 

Again in the census in 1921, still in Hejnsvig, however, has brought more children to:  

Ole Kristensen, born 05.03.1916, Harry Kristensen, born 24.01.1918, Anna Kristensen, born 03.01.1920, all are born in Hejnsvig. 

At the address is also mikkel mother, lodger aftægtkone, Anne Larsen, born Hansen - 01.08.1834. His father-in-law said Ole Larsen, but not to find here. 

The over Laurines food home Klink, who is approx. 30 td. Country, but something was bog then .. Mikkel running with milk beside it. Laurine was seamstress in her young days she had become a machine which she drew around with a cart. So some days she lived on farms and sewed. It was drøjt pulling around to the farms. There were far between and the sand was strictly pulling in. It told her of his 90th birthday. She also sewed for people in some years of his marriage. She could read the newspaper without glasses for the priest on his 90 years today.  

Mikkel was angry when he went out into the marsh, a 3-4 hours, then he steamed and then he was good again.  

Christmas Day brought together children and grandchildren in Klink. So got a couple of children, the children stuck a hymn-book in hand, so they had to sing to grandparents a couple of hours. So sad Laurine and Mikkel along in their chairs and listened to the children's song, it gave the much. 

Mikkel dies 02.04-1954 in Hejnsvig and Laurine dies 23.08.1970, 91 years old in Grindsted in nursing homes. I found the grave of Mikkel Hejnsvig cemetery online. I think never Mikkel came to America. 

Kristen Mathias Peder Kristensen, born 05.11.1881 in Uhre Kjær. Home baptized 02.04.1882 and produced in Church Fires 22.10.1882. 

In a census in 1890 we find him with Peter Albertsen and Else Marie Jensen in a house on Uhre Mark. There he is taking poor care and 9 years old. It also fits well enough. 

Kristen is married to Johanne Jensine Jensen, born 15.02.1879 in Hejnsvig church 09.09.1907. 

Kristen, we find again in a population census from 1916, Nørup parish. By Johanne Kristensen, housewife, born 15.02. 1879 and 4 children:

Augustinus Kristensen, born 15.08.1885 - died 12.11.1891.

That must be him as 6 years old must obtain a bull or cow home from the field, but is killed by lightning. Then it could easily be done, so it to work when one was only 6 years.

Laurids buying Hoeve Mill in 1944 and sold it again in 1958 and moving to the benefits of Roskilde.  

Yes there are not more children back, so there was hardly anyone went to America with his father, Jens Peder Kristensen. 

But wait a minute! Uncle Karl wrote is that Jens Peder went to America together with the housekeeper and the oldest of the children. I prefer to investigate whether he had children with her. But how do I know it when I do not even have the name of the housekeeper.  

Jens Peder sell the house in May 1890 and he was gone. But not so far away even. One evening as I sit and have gone really well, stuck in the investigation, I find in reading the Church book of Fires 1887 - 1891 at and what do I read during the baptism and parents.

All of a sudden pop widower Jens Peder Christensen, Vejle Ømkuller up and an unmarried 19-year girl Larsine Marie Pedersen of Skjærlund. Furthermore, says that the mother resided at 10 months on days Egebjerg Gaard in fires. There was born a girl, Ane Christine Christensen 5 July 1890. 

Curiously, said Jens Peders deceased wife Ane Christine and it's fairly easy to believe that it is the right Jens Peder writing about. The 19-year-old girl is probably housekeeper?  

On 5 April 1877 Jens Peder was married to Ane Kristine Sveigaard and 5 May the same year, Jens Peders sister Karen Kirstine Christensen devoted to Peter Hersleb Gandrup of Egebjerg in Skarrild. I can maybe use for anything. 

After Ane Kristine dying in 1888, I can imagine that Jens Peder has had his time in Egebjerg to visit his sister and I think the housekeeper then he has taken to America? 

Okay, Jens Peder's parents: Kristen Mathias Pedersen and Kirsten Marie Lauersdatter lived in Sønder Kærvej 15 fires from 02.06.1871 to 05.06.1878. So they sell to Peter Hersleb Gandrup, which therefore has become their son-in-law years before. 

Kristen Mathias Pedersen is 62 years old and Kirsten Marie Laurs Daughter is 58 years old. Kristen Mathias died on 17.06.1886 in Uhre Kjær, fires and Kirsten Marie died 20.12.1887 Uhre Mark. 

Approximately 3 km from there on Engebækvej 74 Fires living Larsine Marie's parents: Jens Kristian Pedersen and Johanne Larsen. 

Jens Peder and Marie Larsine get after daughter Ane Christine have two sons: Jens Christensen James born 07.03.1892 Bredballe Beach and baptized in Hornstrup Church 27.03.1892 and Christian Egebjerg Christensen born 21 October 1893 at Valore? But I can not find birth / baptizme data in the church records? 

There are looked after in the following: No Dalby, Higher, Church Skensved, Borup, Havdrup, Ejby, Dåstrup, Gadstrup, mica and the Church, seven who are parishes around Valore on Zealand. Church records of Copenhagen, I have almost given up to go through, at least not before I have really good time.  

Jens Peder and Larsine Marie and three children traveling to England, how I do not know, but from Liverpool travels further with SS Labrador to Quebec, arriving on 21 September 1894 or 1895.
