Tracing Family History & Walking in Their Footsteps
During the unsettled and desperately sad 1800s, many Danes emigrated to other lands. The emigration records of those who made these incredible journeys are available on file in Regional Emigration Record Offices throughout Denmark.
Similarly, many parish churches are always willing to help families by opening their churches and cemeteries. Sadly, many are in unsuspecting places and not always in the village or town whose name they bear. For the unsuspecting visitor seeking family history, this type of problem can be very frustrating and time consuming. To avoid this, I offer my services in order to prepare the way for you.
I get enormous joy from this type of tour. The happiness and emotion shown by visiting families standing, looking and walking in the footsteps of their forebears gives me great satisfaction. To know my research on their behalf had made their journey all the more worthwhile, is a wonderful reward. Please refer to the feedback I have received from grateful clients.
Each tour is unique and designed to meet your exact requirements. To this end, I would prepare the groundwork for you, i. e. :
- researching the area(s) beforehand to ensure all possible connections are in place for you to take full advantage of the time you have available.
- arranging access with churches, cemetries, or other parties, etc.
- prepare a leaflet with relevant information and photographs of your tour and as a momento of your visit.
