Kofoed is one of my husband's lines. I'm right now adding over 2000 new names to the database. Antonette Marie is the daughter of Hans Hansen Kofoed and Anna Margrethe Pedersdatter Splidtz. My husband's line goes from Antonette's brother, Archer Anton Kofoed.I have information that can take you back to the earliest known Kofoed, Poul b. abt 1500.
Send me a letter at my e-mail address in a few days to remind me. I'm still adding Kofoeds and have found some errors in the information that I have, so I have to go back and correct the names I've done so far. Bear with me!
Kofoed is a family name that was passed throughout Danish history. It did not follow the patrimic order (where your son was named with your first name followed by -sen or a daughter by -datter).
