In 1911, a girl named Bertha Steinunn Tang was born in København -unfortunately, I do not know which parish.She died in 1945, and her descendants have very limited information on her ancestry.Her parents were named Peter Tang and Lovísa Albertsdottir, according to one source.
The question: Was this Lovisa from Iceland?The middle name "Steinunn" is a common Icelandic name, and could indicate that she was Icelandic, and if the spelling of Lovisa's last name was really "-dottir", she was almost certainly Icelandic...but then again, it might have been "-datter" too - I do not have any access to the Danish church records.
The thing is that the was only one Lovisa Albertsdottir in Iceland at this time...16 year old at the time.She died some time ago, and her daughter is now wondering whether her mother really went to Denmark and had a child there.
Can anyone help ?
