View Full Version : Any Danes out there?
this is seriously off topic, but if there are any Danes out there looking in I am trying to find my godfather who we lost contact with many many years ago and was hoping if there was anyone who would know how I can go about finding him in Denmark.
Thanks in advance
Well, I have managed to find my godfather...the wonders of the internet. After 20 years of not being in contact, spoke to him yesterday - what a wodnerful experience.
Think this internet thingummy is here to stay!!!!!!! :wink:
Can I ask how you tracked him down?
My fatherís family originally hail from Denmark. My father when in the navy was ashore there, and discovered my great great (great?) grandfather was a pirate, and his relatives operated and owned a shipping company. But thatís about as far as it went before his leave was up.
My surname "Rasmussen" Is apparently very common over there, so I really have no idea where to start!
Fantastic Jamie :biggthump I lost contact with my Mum for 13 years.....didn't find her in Denmark though! It's nice knowing where the family is!
it was amazing tone....it was the first person i called after doing my search, said to him that sorry to disturb etc, but my name was blah and that i was looking for my godfather and he just said, well you've found him!
raz, will have to sit down and trace my route and get back to you if ok mate?
Good stuff Mate and it makes it so much easier when they are forthcoming at the other end....was it a bit nerve wracking making the call :wink:
Raz: Don't know if this is going to help you, but try www.eniro.dk
Go to 'Person' in top.
The site is danish, but you're right! 'Rasmussen' is one of the most used names! :idea: :arrow:
Wish you luck 8-)
Any pointers are useful!
I'll have a crack with that site and see where I get :)
Sorry havent pmd you with the details yet, but will do so later this evening.
cheers and all the best
I started off with this http://www.denmark.org.uk/FAQ.htm#Tracing%20a%20person and then also found a site which gave me the translations for the different fields but cant find it anywhere now...will keep looking though
I'll see where it takes me.
Raz: have you found him? If not, i'll try to do a search but need his full name and all info to get!? :wink:
