I am looking for information about this couple. Johan born in 1706 in Humble, Fyn, Denmark and Maren Christensdotter, born abt 1737 (?). They had at least one son: Karsten Johansen, born: Oct 6, 1754 and died Dec 14, 1825 in Humble, Denmark. Would love to hear from someone who has info to help confer dates and maybe find Johans parents and Maren's parents and birthdate and death date?

Hi Pamela,

All this information comes from the Humble church records.

Iver Johansen had two sons named Johan Iversen. The first was baptized in 1704, opslag 101. He died in 1705, opslag 279.

The second Johan Iversen was baptized in 1705, opslag 106. Often a child was named after a dead child.

Iver Johansen married Anne Madsdatter in 1703, opslag 37. They were engaged 12 Oct 1702, opslag 6.

Sincerely,
Paul

Hej Kaj,

Thanks for correcting me. I still don't think that Maren Christensdatter is the mother of Karsten. He was born in 1754 and she was born circa 1737. To young to be the mother.

mvh
Paul

Paul...that would make Maren 17 when she had Karsten, that's not too out of the norm for those days, is it? In fact a lot of girls were married at 15 or 16 in the US, anyway.

Thank you so much for verifying our Johan and Maren connection, though. Is there any way I can find their parents, or find Maren's true birthdate? Does Sweden have a genealogy site online?

I really appreciate your quick response to my query.

Also...I've been trying to use a Swedish translator, but it's not working very well.

What does: Indeste og nyder Almisse mean?
(Gift is married....Mand is Husband, Hustrue is Wife,)

Hi Pam,

Indeste og nyder Almisse means that the person was poor and living on alms from the parish. I will try to find Maren.
