Ideas for you to help with:

1/3/21  Research red names.  Since I created the pedigree chart on this page, I've noticed a lot of changes on FamilySearch.    I've marked names in red below that have been changed on FamilySearch.  It looks like they were just corrected to the Danish way of naming, but you could check to see if the information is right, or if there are new names that help us know more about their families.   

Danish Research Tips for Beginners

1/1/21  Find half brother.  Look up Rasmus Andreas Rasmussen Berg LHRW-1TZ on Family Search.  One of his attached memories is a letter that mentions a half brother (Jacobsen) that is not listed on Family Search as of now.  You could try to find out who he is.  The letter will be confusing until you write down everyone's names in the letter and figure out who is who.  

1/1/21  Research Danish Poor Houses.  In the letter mentioned above, there is a lot of interesting information on how Caroline Marie Toldboe Berg raised her children after her husband Rasmus Anders Berg died.  If you find interesting things specific to the area they lived, you could post those as memories for the individuals of these families on Family Search for others to learn about their ancestors.

1/1/21  Google Translate Danish to English.  I would assume there are a lot of documents that need to be translated to English.  If you find letters, or records in Danish, use google translate and post what you find on FamilySearch in the memories or documents section for an individual.  Perhaps there are Danish websites that you could find information about the areas these family members lived in??

1/1/21  Check for mistakes.  What mistakes have I made on this website, or on the pedigree charts attached?  If you let me know of things to change it would be helpful if you follow up with me until I get them changed in case I procrastinate and forget!

1/1/21  Learn about Hansine E. Petersen.  KWJX-CTB  I wonder what her story is.  I wonder how she joined the church.  If you can find information, share it on Family Search.   There is a neat story about her, in her daughter Hansine E Andrea Berg about her believing her daughter dreaming there was money at the post office for them, but that is all I know.  I have a lot of my grandpa, Wally Thorup's geneology records at my house... in time maybe I can find something on her here too.  

1/1/21  See Alvin Thorup's son Wally's DNA.  Click here.

1/1/21  Learn how to research using DNA.  Watch videos or read tutorials to figure out how to use DNA to research ancestors. 


TIP:  Do you know how to search by ID number on FamilySearch?  At the top of FamilySearch, click on search, then there will be a drop down where you can click on Family Tree.  On that page need to find where you click to search by ID number.  Can't find it... click here.  

1/3/21  Is Ann Margarethe Christiansdatter's husband listed right?  And who are her parents?  Her husband is 11 years older than her, which could be right, but you might as well look into this while you search for her parents.  K14S-STN
