Does anyone know if they have maps or books available with the farm names (farms from the older days like 1800's and 1900's)on them for the Als, Skelund, Visborg, Hellum areas in Denmark? I know they have books like this in Minnesota called "Platt Books". They show the name of townships and farms.

I don't know if you are still here Hugh, but I wanted to thank you for all of your help with the maps. It worked and I was able to find my family's farm...and others. : ) I'm sorry I never posted a reply to you. Just wanted to take the time to do it now. Thanks again!

Hello I know this is fairly old post but I am doing research for a friend of mine and his great great grandfather and grandmother's last name was Holst from Visborg. Is there a way to perhaps find if there was a family farm in this area? Thanks, T

If you can give us the name of the Holst from Viborg, we might be able to help you.

Sincerely,
Paul

Surnames: Holst, Urdal, Andersadetter
Hello Paul, the name is Jens Christensen Holst married Marie Kristen Urdal. His parents were Christen Holstensen and Kristen Andersadetter. Marie and Jens met when they were working on a large estate in the area. I thought it would great for my friend to sort show a bit of the area where it all began. Any help would be wonderful. I do not read or speak Danish. Thanks, T
