About Our Family Research
I am looking for relatives in Denmark. My Grandfather, Anton Peter Cristian Petersen & Grandmother, Amanda Frederikke Andrea Nielsen were born in Kolding, Denmark (I think). They emmegrated to American in 1906 and were married in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1907. I believe my grandfather had a brother, Charles Carl Petersen who was a police officer in Cincinniti Ohio. I also believe my grandmother had brothers Karl, Hans and sisters, Karoline, Thora, & Valborg. My grandfather's parents are listed as Thomas Petersen and Marie Lund, and my grandmother's parents are listed as Hans Peter Nielsen and Bodil Marie Carlsen. Does anyone recognize any of these names? Any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
