Gerda Edith Rasmussen was born in Copenhagen on 14 Feb 1876. She had a sister, Josepha Marie Rasmussen, born ca. 1874, and a brother, Octave Ansgarius Rasmussen, born ca. 1878.

I am looking for birth dates for Josepha Marie and Octave Ansgarius. Also, I would like to know their father's name!

Gerda Edith married Ludvig Oscar Andersen in Copenhagen in 1900 and went to America in 1904 with her children.

Any information about Gerda's parents or brother and sister would be a big help!

Here are the siblings and their apparent mother in the 1885 Copenhagen census.
Johanne is listed as married and born in Sweden, but no husband is listed.

In 1860s Gothersgade was listed in Helligands, Trinitatis, and Skt Paul parishes. I searched for Gerda in those records and did not find her, but those more skilled in Copenhagen searches can probably locate them:

København, København (Staden), Gothersgade (ulige numre), Nørrevold Kvarter, , Gothersgade 145,Matr.150 & Rømersgade 25 5.Sal, 12, FT-1885
Name: Age: Marital status: Occupation in household: Occupation: Birth place:
Johanne Rasmussen 37 Gift Husmoder Dameskræderinde Sverrig
Gerda Edit Rasmussen 8 Ugift Barn Kjøbenhavn
Josepha Marie Rasmussen 10 Ugift Barn Kjøbenhavn
Octave Ansgarius Rasmussen 2 Ugift Barn Kjøbenhavn
Charlotte Mariane Petersen 20 Ugift logerende Syerske Tyskland

The family belonged to the Catholic Church.
Records are not online.

In the København police registry Josephina Marie Rasmussen is listed as being born in København on 14 Jun 1974. There is an Octavius Anskar Rasmussen born in København on 7 Oct 1882.

In the 1880 census for Aabenraa, København, opslag 67, Frederik Carl Rasmussen, age 29, born in Sorø amt, his unnamed wife, age 33, born in Sweden, and two children were absent for the census. They were at a hospital.

A birth of an unnamed son to Frederik Carl Rasmussen and Johanna Nilsdotter, living at Rømersgade (the same street that the family was living at in the 1885 census) on 7 Oct 1882. This record is from Skt Johannes, Sokkelund, København, opslag 19 nr 882. I think this is the Octavius Anskar Rasmussen mention in the police records.

Johanne Marie Rasmussen died 7 May 1918, Helligkors, Sokkelund, København, opslag 16 nr 72. According to the København police records she was born in Sweden on 19 Mar 1847.
