I guess my main problem is there is not a clear way to follow a danish line w/o more than a name. I am a little frustrated since trying to search pulls up every combination of the name. I would like to know the difference between the little slashes and dots. The search engine gives different results for each...I have found the best combination for searching is to check multiple sites because the format of a record differs between them. Familysearch.org is the best I found for records of Danish Immigrants to use w/ records from Ancestry. I also did a basic internet search for Danish history and Immigration. I did not think Ancestry has a reference library for that kind of thing but I do not know for sure. I live a few hours away from the Danish History Museum in Elkhorn, Iowa and am planning a research trip when it warms up. Any requests or someone wants to meet there let me know. Has any body attempted the resources for danish immigrants at the local library's geneaology room/branch? I do not know if that would complicate this type of search more or work better because it a human doing it and errors are lower. I did find a ancestry member who is Danish(& wonderfully friendly and patient)and that helps, we are in the process of researching and working around the language barrier. My ancestor of interest is:
Jorgen "George" Iversen Frøsig
B: Oct 7 1875 in Vilslev, Ribe, Denmark
D: Jun 5 1961 in Illinois, United States
My grt grt grdpa on my father's side. Had 3 wives only 2 Known: Almeda "Mittie" Crandell & Marguerite Szakacz. He had a previous wife but this information is unknown.

With help and a lot of searching I have been able to find

his father:
Iver Jorgensen Frøsig

D: 8 Feb 1927 in Jedsted, Vilstrup, Ribe, Denmark
Sp: Lovise Jacobsen
B: 30 Sep 1853 in Hinderup, Ribe, Denmark
D: 26 Nov 1936 in Vilslev, Ribe, Denmark
(Her Parents: Jacob Hansen 1804 – 1860
Marie Kristine Nielsdatter 1811 – ?)

his grdpa:
Jorgen Mortensen Frösig
B: 27 Sep 1801 in Jested, Ribe, Denmark
D: 21 Apr 1855 in Vilslev, Ribe, Denmark
Sp: Johanne Iversdatter
B: 3 Jun 1809 in Hunderup, Ribe, Denmark
D: 16 Jun 1848 in Vilslev, Ribe, Denmark
(Her Parents: Iver Larsen 1770 – 1843
& Margrethe Hansdatter ?)


his grt grdpa:
Morten Pedersen Frösig
B: 1775 in Jedsted, Ribe, Denmark
D: 10 Jan 1822 in Vilslev, Ribe, Denmark
Sp: Katrine Jørgensdatter
B: 1777 in Jedsted, Ribe, Denmark
D: 14 Mar 1841 in Vilslev, Ribe, Denmark

his grt grt grdpa:
Peder Nielsen Frösig
B: 2 Feb 1739 in Ribe, Denmark
D: in Vilslev, Ribe, Denmark
Sp: Cecilie Sørensdatter
B: 1741
D: 29 Dec 1821 in Vilslev, Ribe, Denmark

and his grt grt grt grdpa:
Niels Jepsen Frösig

D: 28 Feb 1751 in Ribe, Denmark
Sp: Anna Tømdatter
B: 1701
D: 1778 in Jedsted, Vilstrup, Ribe, Denmark

But I am stuck at this point, records of this parrish only go back to 1730 due to a fire, I believe.
