I know, I'm at a brick wall. My only Rosencrantz family member I have names and dates for is my 2nd great grandmother, Ellen Rosencrantz b. 7 Feb 1828 in Nova Scotia, Canada and died 21 Aug 1910 in Salem, Massachusetts. I do have a paper from another relative (my grandfather's sister) and she states that Ellen was born in Germany. I've got other documents (a census) that states she was born in NS Canada. I'm not counting on either to be true unless I find out for sure. I do have names for her parents, but I found the info on someone elses tree, and no documents to prove it. I only have the info on my tree just incase it's proven to be so, It can always be changed. The location of Germany I stated, was I looked up origins of the Rosencrantz name, and it came up with this section of Germany. So I figured maybe someone on the post may have ancestors that imigrated from this section and settled in Nova Scotia (Annapolis county I think). Thankyou for the info about Denmark. I'll check that too.
