Hey all;

I have this person I'd like to be able to find information on.

Mary Christina Helena Peterson born Jan 9, 1818 Feldum, Denmark died 1910 U.S.

Don't have the names of her parents though.

Hello Jack,

If you are sure about the date of birth, this can be very difficult. I have found 2 locations in DK named Feldum, one in Vonsbæk parish, Haderslev County and one in Åstrup parish, Falster Sønder county.

But no notes about births around the date mentioned.

Many regards
Ib

It may be time to look up and share immigration data from the US census.  You can probably confirm the birth month and year and the year of immigration.  The Danish emigration records are helpful after 1868/69.  The Castle Garden and Ellis Island records are often helpful.  As are US marriage and naturalization records.

Hi

Well, I'll look at my research and see what's already been done with that. Maybe the answer is lies within.

Hmm...Well, it looks like, from what I gather, she could have been born bet. 1815-1820. She's the Daughter of Lars Peterson and Johanna as per their marriage record on Familysearch.com.
