Searching for family in Denmark.
Knud Olivarius Nielsen Weirum was my great grandfather. he was born September 11, 1886 in Bjerregrav, Denmark. His Father was Knud Nielsen and his mother Olina (?)

At some point the family changed their name to Weirum (Vejrum on passenger list) because there were too many Nielsen's in town.

The family lived in Randers until 1915 when they moved to Havndal. My grandfather had a shop "Knud Weirum, Uhlmager & Optiker" in Havndal. Knud O. Nielsen was married to Minna Margrete Johanna Hansen b. March 21, 1888 in Sclegwig,Solstein Germany.
There were 5 children
Lilly Elizabeth
Knud Berner b. 20 April, 1909
Dorathea Wilhelmina b 14 December, 1910
Hagbarth (Howard) V. b @ 1912
Vibeke Johanna b. 23 Feb 1923,

The family arrived in New York 8 June 1929 aboard the "United States" on the passenger list the last name is "Nielsen Vejrum"

I am looking for information on the generations prior to Knud O. Nielsen Weirum. The Nielsen family and the identity of "Olina". I have photo's of Knud and Olina but that is about it.

My grandmother is now 100 and has an excellent memory but has no information on her grandparents besides the photo.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
