ØstermarksgårdOn these pages you will find genealogical information about the ancestors and descendants of my Danish grandparents, Hans Tolstrup Christensen, who was born February 26, 1880, in Nørre Snede – in central Jutland, and Elisabeth Jensen, who was born June 13, 1879, in Dronninglund – in northern Jutland. The couple spent their adult lives in Kirke Skensved – in eastern Zealand.

There is also information about eight of Hans Tolstrup’s siblings who emigrated. His eldest brother Mads Sørensen Christensen (b. 1867) emigrated to Argentina; and the following emigrated to Omaha, Nebraska in the United States:

Among the materials also posted on the website are: a memoir by Hans Tolstrup describing his rise from a farm hand to a prosperous landowner on Zealand; and a history written by my American cousin, Harlan Rosacker, about those who emigrated to the United States.

The pages are primarily made to the benefit of family members, but anyone is welcome to stop by. The pages are privacy protected, so you can't see information about living people unless you have a user account and are logged in.
