Hi I am trying to trace my family tree and my Great Great Grandfather was Hans Peter Samuelsen, on the 1911 Census he list's his birth as the Faroe Islands he was born in 1843/4 his father was Samuel Johnson Samuelsen a farmer. I was wondering if anyone has any information on Hans Peter or Samuel. Many Thanks for your help

Hi, hoping you're still here.

If my data is correct, then Hans Peter Samuelsen was my great-great-grandmother's 3rd cousin. He was born in 1844 in the Faroese village of Eiði. His father Samuel Johannesen was born in 1806 in the neighbouring village of Funningur, which is my hometown. His mother was Anna Sophia Poulsdatter born in Eiði in 1814. Hans Peder was the 5th of 7 children (from what I know). The other siblings were:

Poul Samuelsen, b. 1834
Anna Elisabeth Samuelsen, b. 1836
Susanne Samuelsen, b. 1839
Johannes Samuelsen, b. 1841
Joen Peter Samuelsen, b. 1847
Jacob Pauli Samuelsen, 1852-84

I don't know that much about this family though. At least I hope, that I've given you a bit of a start. Feel free to contact me too. :)
