Reply: Tracing my Johannsen Ancestors a request from New Zealand

Hello again,
I have had a lot of success in my quest for this family. It has been a long one. Peter Christian Johannsen and Anna Christina Johannsen nee Johannsen had three children:

Johann Peter Johannsen DOB: 1869

Hans Peter Johannsen DOB: 1870

Arthalina Johannsen DOB: 1872

The family had a very tough life and migrated to New Zealand about 1874 and had two more children here; but the three children born in Nordhackstedt, Schleswig-Flensburg, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany did not come with them. Can anyone assist with ideas on searches etc. I have tried the DDD but only in the county of Sydslesvig. I’m lost as to where else or what Census papers to look for. Could the children have died early, been adopted or taken from them?

Any clues would be gratefully received.

Kind regards Steve
