What interesting reading Hugh......I have been looking for or at least trying to make sense of this all day. Yesterday I finally got a birthdate/place for an ancestor....

Else Marie Hansen emigrated to Queensland, Australia but was born in 1872 in "Styding, Slesvig, Germany".

Now when I did a search for Styding, I found it near Vojens in Denmark!!!! started the confusion for me. Now I realise that SCHLESWIG-HOLSTEIN changed hands many times and the borders must have moved maybe???

........So in 1872 technically she would have born in Germany? not Denmark as now? have I got that right???
The area is now South Jutland?

Her parents were Peder Hansen and Dorothea Marie Matthieson (out of interest)
