It would be nice to find if there are living relatives still in Denmark for this family, or even a more specific place where they lived, because of a 2011 trip to Denmark to see where the ancestors came from, and try to connect with relatives in Denmark today.
The immigrant to America:
Christine Bertine Phillips, born on December 2, 1885, in Alborg, Denmark and died in Wheaton, Il. on July 6, 1976.
Christine Bertine Phillips parents:
father Laurits Peter Vilhelm Phillips was born about 1858, I believe in Norresundby Sogn, Aalborg. He went to America first, then his daughter came later.
Laurits' father, Johan Peter Phillips was born in Baden, (Germany? Switzerland?) on August 4, ca. 1824 and his wife Christine Berthine Juul was born in Aalborg, Denmark on September 16, 1829 and died on March 27, 1877. Johan had a sister Marie Larsine Cathrine Phillips.
Christine Bertine Phillips' Mother was Marie Dorthea Anderson, born in Alborg, Denmark in 1866, she died shortly after Christins Bertine Phillips was born in 1885. After that time her dad Laurits, left for America (I found a record that it was April 13, 1888), and Christine Bertine Phillips stayed with a Danish family who raised her, that family Lagfave C Jespersen and his two sons Kaj and Harl, who she wrote letters to her entire life.
