Oh thank you again! Yes, I should start a new thread, I know nothing more about her half siblings, other than what was posted here. All we ever heard about her stepmother, was that she was unkind to Magda and did not treat her as she did her own children. I suppose that is one reason she left Denmark. We know very little about her birth mother Frederikke but my dad has recently found some pictures and a few documents, so we're trying to sort it all out. Apparently, Fredderikke's father was fairly well-off as he left Magda a sum of $400 something when he died, which I suppose was a nice amount back in those days :) Before I had asked questions here in this forum, we didn't even know who it was that had left her the money.......so thankful for all the wonderful and kind volunteers who are willing to help here!
