Alas, no.

The person I'm referring to is the priest Clement Laugesen Follerup (1602, Vollerup, Denmark - 1688, Sandur, Faroe Islands). He had 16 children, and his genes are today spread across the country. (and outside)

This priest was H.P. Ellingsgaard's wife's great-great-great-grandfather. This just shows how far the relation between us is. However, it's there, and the Faroese being a very genealogy interested people love to find out about these things. :)

Anyway, E.M. Nolsøe, was the daugther of Joen Djonesen Nolsøe, who was the son of Djone Poulsen, who was the son of Susanne Djonedatter, who was the daughter of Ellen Simonsdatter, who was the daughter of Simon Clementsen, who was the son of Clement Laugesen Follerup. Currently my tree holds close to 35,000 of CLF's descendants, however, they are more than that.

Worth noting is the fact, Djone Poulsen's brother was Poul Poulsen Nolsøe (1766-1808), who was the man who built the first Faroese ship 'Royndin Fríða' in 1804. This was in objection to the Danish monopoly trade. His descendants are also numerous.

It's strange, that Ellingsgaard lost one of its a's. How did this occur?

Anyway, if you have any further question, I'll happily try to answer them. :)
