According to the Faaborg Church parish records, my grandfather, who was born in 1907, was born at Faaborg, Svendborg Landevej nr. 87. Can anyone tell me what this refers to or where it is located? I can't seem to locate it on any maps. Thanks!

Landevej nr. 87 is apparently a rural address near Faaborg.

Go to http://mapper.acme.com/ and search for Landevej 87 Faaborg Denmark.

It takes you to a spot 3.4 miles NW of Faaborg and if you select satellite view and zoom in you will see the home or building there.

I discovered that prior to submitting my post, but it seems so far away from Faaborg in order to be considered part of that city/twon. Do you know if in 1907 that area was in fact considered Faaborg? Thanks for helping me out.

Far away ?
1-2 km from center of Faaborg and the harbour.

It has probably been a part of Faaborg municipality, also in 1907.

An old map before 1900 shows open land, some houses and a brickyard.

You are right. 1-2 km is not that far. For some reason, I was thinking the house was in town, but that has to be it. Thank you again!

Entering that address into maps.google.com, it directs to the same location as the link you provided, but Google lists the address as Landevejen 87, 5683 Haarby, Denmark. I do not much about the municipality concept in Denmark. Is Haarby a municipality of Faaborg? Why wouldn't they just list Haarby as the town on the parish records rather than Faaborg? I don't mean to be difficult, I am just trying to understand. Thank you so much. Sincerely, Darla

My suggestion was that it could be Svendborgvej in Fåborg,
and that the name could have been changed.

Landevejen, Hårby is another road.
