I have been looking hard for Antonette Andersen and her parents Dorthea Olsen and Anders Andersen in the census of 1865 and 1875 without much luck.
I found a Dorthea Olsen at Hausmansgaden 1 in 1865. Her marital status is listed as "e" and her occupation Opkjoberkone (?). She has three children and then a son "Anton Alfred Andersen" (1 uegte barn) born in 1858 in Chr. just like Antonette.
Also in the same house is an Anders Olsen, husfader with a wife and 3 children, and a child named Antonette Marie Olsen Datter til Anders Olsen. This seems odd. Would Dorthea be called Pige in Antonette's christening if she were 37 but unmarried at the time? I can't find a translation of either occupation. Can you help me once more?
