Thank you again for your time and effort. I apprecitate the translations for the danish that I am unable to read. I am curious what the 1787 census said concerning the children. My husband thought it was saying the children begged to help support the parents. I apologize for being slow to respond, I am trying to get up to speed on this line. I have not looked at the parish records online, however, I do have access to the microfilm of the Birkerod parish records. I will look at the Hans Rasmussen you found, as that seems to fit the age better than the one I have in my records, which is Rasmus Hansen of Isterod his son Hans to baptism Dom. 14p trinit 1746 (Birkerod parish). There is also a Hans Jorgen Rasmussen born 1754 in Nyelod area to Hans Rasmussen with witnesses from Hosterkiob (Birkerod parish). I would like to find Benthe's birth and parents. Perhaps I should start looking in the surrounding parishes. Thanks for the site for online parish records. I will definitely look at it. I have found the records in the Kopenhagen area more difficult than the ones in the Viborg area.
