Surnames: Petersen/Molgaard
My great grandfather(Hans Petersen) came to Nebraska to attend Dana College and married CHristine Molgaard. His 2 brothers(Anton and Thomas) moved to Canada. His parents were Thomas and Bertha Petersen and lived in Schleswig-Holstein. I know he had a couple more brothers and sisters who stayed there. Does anyone have any information on this family?

Your post didn't really have enough information to tell if this is who you are looking for, but in the records for Rodding Haderslev there was a family that consisted of:

Thomas Petersen and Birthe Marie Lund (who married in 1880) and had children:
Kjestine b. 12 Oct 1880
Hansine b. 23 Jul 1882
Thomas b. 6 Mar 1884
Hans b. 23 Sept 1887
Anton b. 6 Mar 1890
Martin b. 4 Feb 1892

I thought it was close enough to be worth passing along...

Hello, from the Möllgaard Doerpum, "The Möllgaard Family History" from 1627 to 1983.
Family reunion in 2007, is held every 5 years. 14 generations of family history. There is a newspaper clipping.

I am not related to the Möllgaards. by Ralf

This is exactly who I'm looking for! Do you have any more information on this family, or know where I can receive more info on family members still living there?

I can't give you much more... the marriage record that I found for Thomas Petersen and Birthe Marie Lund didn't have any other info (not even age or vaccination dates) on it and if the census records for that area for the years between 1860 and 1925 exist I don't know where to access them. I had hoped to find Thomas on a tilgangliste (list of people coming into the parish) but the one I found only went through about 1860.
The parish records however, are available online (free) at Arkiveronline. (And I can always forward the ones that I did find to you too)

Thomas Petersen and Birthe Marie Lund were married May 4 1880 in Rodding parish. And there is a birth record for a Birthe Marie Lund who was born May 27 1856 to Hans Lund and Kirstine Strögaard in Rodding that might be her. I didn't find a Thomas Petersen born in Rodding around the correct time, but there was one who was born in Sønder Hygum (parish directly to the west of Rodding) in 1850 that might be right. Unfortunately I can't pin those down for you....maybe there is someone who is more familiar with or who has access to records that I don't....?
