• Welcome to Danish genealogy and history at GoAncestry! We are striving to focus upon emigration from primarily European countries and subsequent immigration to North American regions.  Many of our users are looking back towards their ancestors, but we also wish to help those in the homelands find the paths their descendants took after they departed.  We are willing to assist our homeland researchers in any way that we can.  Our forums allow for interaction, and we can provide at least the basic translation service to help in our collaborations.  If you are looking for your ancestors or descendants, please join us, we will work together if that will help.

    Velkommen til Dansk slægtsforskning og historie på GoAncestry! Vi stræber efter at fokusere på udvandring fra primært europæiske lande og efterfølgende indvandring til nordamerikanske regioner. Mange af vores brugere søger tilbage mod deres forfædre, men vi ønsker også at hjælpe dem i de hjemlande finde de stier, deres efterkommere tog, efter at de forlod. Vi er villige til at hjælpe vores fædreland forskere på nogen måde, vi kan. Vores fora tillader interaktion, og vi kan give mindst den grundlæggende oversættelsestjeneste til at hjælpe i vore samarbejder. Hvis du er på udkig efter dine forfædre eller efterkommere, bedes du slutte sig til os, vil vi arbejde sammen, hvis der vil hjælpe.

Denmark recently changed the way it assigns territory to a governing body. I will strive to document the older counties as they were for a fair amount of history. I think this will enable you to more quickly find the right records and church information. This is a good starting place when preparing for research about ancestors. Though maps change over time and rulers as well, records of specific localities may still be found in the current State archives. Sometimes there are even challenges finding the right alignment of a record to the archive based upon the date the historical record was created. If the States are highlighted, they contain a link to subsequent focused information. If they are not highlighted, information has not been developed for that State. If there is currently no guide listed, you can consider volunteering some of your time or information. Please refer to the sitewide collaboration link above to share information or ask questions.

      I think it is a common theme really.  Each year as spring opens and the weather allows a release to the outdoors, the website will see a slowing in information.  That is ok, we really love our gardens as well.  I am also a huge fan of grilling foods.  I am not sure any of that will change in years to come either.   We have also taken a grand step in our field research and spent a week primarily in New Jersey with a few stops in Pennsylvania. It was a grand discovery, and yet, it was overwhelming as well. I have yet to go through all of the information that we uncovered.  And again, we found more holes that need attention.  I jokingly tell my bride that I am "DONE" now that I have linked my American lineage to the initial immigrant from Germany.  It is just a joke, there is always more to do. Thankfully so!   In the coming weeks things will settle and we will once again make some time to get more of our information on line.  Expect a wealth of data surrounding the early Tinsmans in America, maybe in Germany as well.  I will see what I can do.  I will also get more linked information posted for other areas.  Finding so many local resources while we traveled has proven that courthouses and societies are very important places to visit, and even make new friends.   I hope you will find something worth your visit, maybe even something Grand!!!!!

      In order to keep moving forward on site site, we understand the need for content and resources that you can use in your research.  We are restructuring our databases to make them more user friendly for genealogy research and bring more unique content to the site. Once we structure the regional information appropriately, it will be linked to other database information from our our GoAncestry Library and our Postcards project.  Additionally, it will allow us to continue to expand our projects for surname and other source data and once again, link it to the regions (s) that are depicted. We hope these additions will occur fairly quickly. Please let us know your thoughts.
