Surnames: Holmes, Holmé, Holm, Fredrikson, Rolfs, Pickard
My great grandfather was Nels Christian Holmes, who came to Omaha, Nebraska, from Horsens Parish, Skanderborg County, Denmark. He worked at a dairy in Omaha. We were told that his name was Holmé, and that he changed the spelling to Holmes when he worked at the dairy. Recently we have found papers that have the name spelled Holm.

I am looking for descendants of my great grandfather's brother, Soren Holmes. I have a picture of him and his family, but I don't know what happened to them.

This is information about Nels and Soren's parents and siblings.
