Paul, thank you so-much. Every bit helps.

- what does it mean "174 nr 4" and "8 nr 1" ?
- how do they name their children? does each child have a different last name depending if it's a girl or a boy... or do all children have the father's surname? this is 1 area I'm having lots of trouble. In America, all children get the father's surname.
- do you know of a website that can help me understand some of the Danish terminology (maybe translate) ? ... example-- what does "Ugift" mean next-to the child's name in the census?
- who is Rasmussen mentioned in your post? Is he one of the family members?

I need-to learn more about this family however the culture & language difference makes it difficult.
thank you kindly,
sincerely,
Melanie
ps... my husband is the great grandson of father Jens Sorensen & wife Ella Poulsen.
