Again, I do not know what county this query should be posted to.

Hello - I am looking for information of my great grandfather Niels C. Andreasen. "C" = Carl or Christian. His son's middle name was Carl, born in USA. I believe Niels was born in December of 1855 and emigrated to Greenville, Michigan in 1879. I can find no matches in the Danish Emigration Archive Database - only a "Mads Andreasen". Family lore tells that before his emigration Nils lived in the Schleswig-Holstein area of what was then Denmark.

Any assistance would be greatly provided.

Hi Flemming,

I think that this could be the one. I looked at Niels & Hanne's marriage record and the two witnesses are Frederick Christiansen and Jens Hansen.

I am trying to verify Niels's birthday through another source.

Would you be willing to provide me the family history of this person, if it is available?

Thanks very much!

Thank you, Flemming. I have already been able to locate family members here in Michigan because of the information I received from you. You have made this a wonderful week of information for me. I thank you very sincerely.
