I'm looking for information about my Danish ancestry. My Great Grandfather, Waldemar Frederick Rudolph Kamphenkel, was born in Denmark c1880. He had a number of siblings (that I know of): Jenni, Oscar & Hans. I believe his parents were Carl Friedrich Kamphenkel and Marie (or Maren) Kirstine Olsen and I think he was born in Aarhuis. The family business was shoemaking and they had a shop in Copenhagen.
I know that Kamphenkel is a German surname and is very rare. If anyone has any information please get in touch. Thanks
