NEHRKORN - Need Information about my family

NEHRKORN - Need Information about my family

Classification: Query
Surnames: Nehrkorn, Andersen, Schmidt, Kresse, Hansen, Bebendorf
I am looking for information about my family.

I have the following information, and would require the parents, or other useful information. I am only freshman on the area genealogy, and so I hope to support.

- Schleswig, Germany
- Christiansdal, Denmark
- Harderslev, Denmark
- Flensburg, Germany

I am aware of the following:
- Johann Daniel Ludvig Nehrkorn, * 9 Aug. 1824
- Hedvig Christine Nehrkorn (born Andersen family name), * 16 Mar. 1831
--- Son Ludvig Johann Jørgen Christian Nehrkorn, * 18 June 1856, † 1936
--- The son's Wife: Louise Nehrkorn (born family name Schmidt)

Children of the son and his wife:
- Theodor Emil Nehrkorn, * 25 May. 1904, † 1990, Marriage 20 Aug. 1932 with Luise Charlotte Kresse (* 22 Aug. 1908, † 12 Dec.1985) in Flensburg
- Carl Christian Vilhelm Nehrkorn *, 8 July 1892, † 30 May 1972,
- Hilda Nehrkorn (later family name 'Hansen'), * 18 April 1887, † 11 May 1969
- Frida Nehrkorn (later family name 'Bebendorf')

All information can be right or wrong. I hope you answer, even if partial match. Names should be largely correct. The birth and death dates are probably wrong possible.

I thank you very much.

You're fortunate to have a fairly distinctive name to research.

I think you mean Haderslev, which is a county as well as a city, and Christiansdal in Odense, is that correct? You can search transcribed census records here:

This is a work in progress and not all records and years are online in every region. The Dansk Demografisk Database also has some transcriptions from Schleswig-Holstein (Sydslesvig) so you might try looking in those counties as well for Flensburg censuses.

Church records for Flensburg are held at the local archives in Flensburg. In order to access them you'd need to visit the archives yourself or hire a local researcher to do this for you.

The Statens Arkiver (also known as has images for church records throughout Denmark. The online archive is free to search and view:

Since you have some exact dates you can try a lookup in the actual church records for those parishes. The records are on old-style handwritten Danish and sometimes in German, so if you aren't used to the handwriting style you may want to look up records by date and then try to visually scan the baptism names as best you can. There's a help file in English if you need it.

The mail list can be very helpful in assisting with reading old records. If you have extensive roots in Denmark it may be worth subscribing to this mail list for help with your Danish-born ancestors.

Just a few little tidbits that might make it a little easier to find them in the parish records:

Christiandal is a 'place' within Hammelev parish in Haderslev Amt. (Jorgen Johan Ludvig Christian Nehrkorn was born there)

Theodore Emil Nehrkorn born October 25, baptized November 20 1904 in Haderslev (Vor Frue parish) Parents - Jorgen Johann Ludwig Christian Nehrkron and Louise Auguste nee Schmidt

Jorgen Johan Ludvig Christian Nehrkorn born in Hammelev parish, Haderslev Amt on 18 April 1856 son of Ludvig Nehrkorn and Hedevig nee Andersen. Died Haderslev Vor Frue July 6 1936

Auguste Luise Schmidt was born in Flensburg Dec 19 1865 daughter of Heinrich Friedrich Schmidt and Anne Dorthea Knudsen. Died Haderslev Vor Fru June 14 1912. Her info taken from death record which also notes she was married to Jorgen Johann Christian Nehrkorn and that her children were: Hilda, Carl Wilhelm, Wilhelmine Frieda and Theodor Nehrkorn. BTW 'Wilhelmine Frieda' is 'Frieda Wilhelmine' on her baptism record and on both Theodor Emil's and Frieda's baptism records their mother is 'Louise Auguste'

Hope this helps,
