I am just interested in talking to some other
Gades and seeing how closely we are related. I
live in Canada and my Grandpa Niels came from
Denmark. His full name was Niels Christian Gade,
and I believe his mothers name was Anine. Please
email me...even if we aren't CLOSE relatives,
I would love to get to know people.

My family has always pronounced our name, godee. My grandfather was Rev. Edward Herman Henry Gade and his family seems to have lived in MN. He married a Mueller, descendent of a Bergt.

I have visited with a cousin in Germany, that is of the Gade family, and in Ebstorf, the name is pronounced "Ga-da" with a short "a" sound.Actually I would compare it to the "o" sound in dog. I was quite surprised. we pronounce it Gay- Dee. Long a and long e.

Seems the Gades couldn't make up their minds on how to pronounce the name. I've been told our pronunciation (Like: got tE )is Danish.

Sounds closer. I now have a brother living in Middle River MN which is about 20 miles from Thief River Falls.
I'll check with him. Always meant to ask my father to write down all he knew about our relatives. I only know as far back as my grandfather: Edward Herman Henry Gade.
