Thanks, this is a great website. Does anyone know what the following phrase means?
Forsørges af Fattigvaesnet
The website says that the first part, Forsørges af, means "Provided by" but the last word I can't find a translation for. I think it means poor or pauper judging from the other words on the occupation list but I am not sure. This phrase is used on the 1880 Danish census for a widow lady 76 years old, and it is listed as her occupation.
