I am researching this family from a book I was given called Familie Valentiner written in 1888. Valentin was born 1531 and died 30 November 1593 possibly either in Denmark or Germany. There was a comment submitted by Voigt Stammbaum in Ancestry.com that Valentin's son Wilhelm's last name was Valentinsen but was changed to Valentiner. And of course it's in German and I don't speak or read German. I have a German dictionary but it's not very helpful. Valentin's father's name was Paul HOLST born 1511 and died 06 August 1591, again possibly in Denmark or Germany.
Any help on the research would be greatly appreciated. Lisa
