Family from Soro, Fyn, Denmark - Andersen

Family from Soro, Fyn, Denmark - Andersen

Hello,

I am hoping to locate more information on my family from Fyn.

Kristian Andersen and Johanna Jensen had a daughter Anna Marie Andersen in 1885. I believe Johanna was born in 1848 and that her mother's name was Bestemor?
Kristian and Johanna had two other children, Signe and Jacob (Kristian had other children from prior marriages).

Paul Andersen and Margarette Kristofferson (unmarried) had a son Johannes Martin Andersen in 1879. Johannes also had cousins that were Pedersens.
Anna and Johannes married and came to the US in 1905.
I know lots about Anna and Johannes but I am looking for more information about their parents and families.

I am pretty new to this adventure, so any tips, leads or other assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Nora

Bestemor could be the danish word Bedstemor = grandma
Soro = Soroe = Sorø a city on the island Seeland in Denmark
Fyn = island in Denmark

Do you have a date of birth for Johannes,
and where he was born ?

Do you know the date of arrival in the US ?

Sincerely
Kaj

A good place entry-level site is My Danish Roots. An site with Danish census (not yet fully transcribed and posted), some immigration, and some additional categories of records:

The most important site for looking at the civil records (birth, marriage, death) maintained in Danish churchbooks is here:
