I am going through the places in my database program and Geocoding their locations. I have a place Bjørnsholm.

The full Sogn, Herred, Amt location designation is Bjørnsholm Sogn, Slet Herred, Aalborg Amt.

When I try to locate it specifically on a map to get its Geocode, I do not find such a location. I looked at Danish FamilySearch and I find it in the list of Parishes and there are registers for the Bjørnsholm Sogn, but there is not a Parish by that name showing in the map display.

I have not been able to find a physical church nor location for Bjørnsholm. I have looked at http://www.korttilkirken.dk/index.html, and http://danmarkskirker.natmus.dk/kirkesoegning/kirkeresultater/ and elsewhere.

Am I missing something? Where is the Bjørnsholm Sogn? Is there a physical church by the name of Bjørnsholm Kirke?

Any help or feedback would help my understanding an goal of Geocoding my locations.  Thank you.

"Bjørnsholm

In 1573, the estate was given to Bjørn Andersen, a powerful noble, after whom it was renamed Bjørnsholm (English: The isle of Bjørn),
who converted two of the conventual buildings for residential use.

The church remained in use as the parish church until the early 17th century, when it was deemed too large to keep in repair, at which
point the west wing of the abbey was converted to a parish church instead. The abbey church was finally abandoned in 1668,
and was used by local people as a quarry for building materials."
