Yes, pretty cool. Flemming amazes me.
On this link is a discussion of Friderik Kaas, father of Niels Wilhelm Kaas. The discussion took place on Slaegt og Data Dis-Danmark forum, in Danish, but there is also an English-language forum there called "Find Your Relatives in Denmark":http://www.dis-danmark.dk/forum/read.php?1,627086,627100
I'll try to tell you what it says. I do not speak Danish! If you or your dad do, then ignore me. ;D
The poster wonders where Friderik was born.
1825 Friderik Kaas married Anne Marie Larsdatter at Turø parish, Sunds herred, Svendborg amt.
1826 Friderik Kaas married Kirsten Larsdatter, also at Turø.
1834 census Friderik is a weaver, 64 years old.
1840 census he is a weaver, 71 years old.
1845 census says Friderik Kaas was born in Svendborg.
He died in 1848 at Turø, 78 years old.
Thus Friderik is born about 1770.
1787 Census in the town of Svendborg
Svendborg, Sunds, Svendborg Købstad, , Skattergade [a street] 109
Anne Sobine Knudsen 50, widow, Husbondine
Frederik Kaas 17, unmarried, son, weaver boy [apprentice?]
Elisabeth Kirstine 14, unmarried, daughter
Friderich Kaas 32, unmarried, weaver
Anne Sophie 66, widow, his mother
Elisabeth Kaas 28, unmarried, his sister
Two weaving apprentices in the household also
At the baptism of Frederik Kaas’s sister Elisabeth, her parents names are written,
06 December 1772, Sankt Nikolai, Svendborg:
Niels Willumsen Kaase
Anna Sabine Friderichsdatter Blohm
Friderich Kaas was baptized 06 May 1770 at Sct. Nicolai in Svendborg. The church book citation for this is Sct Nicolai KB 1736-1814; opslag 96
Friderich’s parents were trovlovet 12 April 1767. I believe the sense of the meaning is that they registered their intention to be married at the church and the banns were published.
More follows about the extended family that I won't try to translate...
