I need some help to find my Great granfather on my fathers side.
My Great granfather was Niels severin skaarup, born in Tirstrup, denmark on the 19th december 1888. His parents was Niels sørensen skaarup and wife Severine jensine kristine sørensen friis from tirstrup, denmark.

My father has a picture of him and a friend on the Ellen james, but we dont know where its taken.

Im asking for help here cos i been told from family, he went to Argentina and then the US.

I have been looking for any leads on where he went after he left denmark, for a long time.

Ill be greatfull for any help on finding him.

Hi,

An idea to find him after emigration might be to use www.archives.com

It gives a few possible Niels Skaarup, but noone with Severin.

Hi - still looking? Maybe this is your family?

They are living in Fuglslev Mark in Fuglslev sogn, Djurs Sønder, Randers, Denmark.

Fuglslev sogn (parish) is adjacent to Tirstrup sogn. It is also next to Lyngby sogn, Feldballe sogn, and Nørager sogn - all mentioned in the 1880 census below. Sounds like the family moved a lot, but these places are all relatively close together in Djurs Sønder herred, Randers amt.

A bridegroom named Niels Sørensen Skaarup married Severine Jensine Christine Friis 22 September 1877 in Nødager church.
Niels was born 04 April 1854, Lynge sogn, parents Søren Rasmussen Skaarup and Mette Marie Nielsen. Severine was born 11 June 1858 in Stabrand, Nødager sogn, her parents Søren Christensen Friis and Karen Jensdatter.

Below, could be Niels in 1860:

1860 Danish Census
Randers, Djurs Sønder, Lyngby, Lyngby By, Et Huus, 48, FT-1860, C8328
Søren Skaarup 51 Gift Huusfader dagleier Her i Sognet
Kirstine Rasmussen 25 Gift Hans hustru Felballe Sogn
Rasmus Skaarup 2 Ugift Deres søn Her i Sognet
Anders Skaarup 11 Ugift Husfaders børn af tidligere ægteskab Heri Sognet
Niels Skaarup 6 Ugift Husfaders børn af tidligere ægteskab Heri Sognet <---------- father's child from previous marriage


1850
Randers, Djurs Sønder, Lyngby, Lyngby bye, huus, 25, FT-1850, C5830
Søren Skaarup 41 Gift træskokarl, huusfader Her i Sognet
Mette Bek 29 Gift hans kone Do
Anders Skaarup 1 Ugift deres søn Do


Skaarup can be used with the patronymic or without (it can stand alone as a "surname") - so a man such as the father above can be Søren Rasmussen or Søren Skaarup or Søren Rasmussen Skaarup.
