Tranbergs of Bornholm

Surnames: Tranberg
I am searching for siblings of Hans Jacob Tranberg, born
1835, who left Bornholm for the Danish West Indies. I am interested in those who remained behind in Bornholm, and another brother who also went to the West Indies.

Would you know if Hans Jacob Tranberg married in the West Indies (St. Croix)?
If he did, any children?

I do see a Hans Jacob Tranberg in the 1911 St. Croix census, age 5. Maybe named after him?

I visited the grave of Hans Jacob in Frederiksted St. Croix this past week. He rests in a grave that includes his son Lauritz Tranberg ( my grandfather ). My father Emil Tranberg also is resting in the Frederiksted cemetery.

I too am tracing my family ancestry and am a distant relative of yours. My name is Traci Marline Hicks Wolfe. I am contacting you through my sister in law Paige Wolfe's account. My grandmother was Karen Elaine Hall, Daughter of Gerda E Tranberg and Glenn E Hall. Gerda Tranberg is the daughter of Hans Tranberg and Millicent Steele. Hans Tranberg is the son of Hans Jacob Tranberg and Mary Hill (if I have done my research correctly). My family has very little information about the Tranbergs. I never knew my grandmother Karen as she passed away when my father was very young. My great grandmother Gerda did tell me stories about family in Frederiksted that she would visit each year. I believe she has a sister named Thelma. I would love to learn more from you about our ancestry and hope that together we can connect the missing pieces. please contact me at
