Well shucks, I'm surprised you didn't find Elof.

You want Maribo amt

Spelling is Elof Andersen

That's all you need - he comes up in the 1890 census for me.

In general, it's really hard to find people in a database, even if they are there. Spelling of names was not standardized in earlier times; plus naming customs in Denmark mean a person could have several various "surnames." Plus a person might be living elsewhere. Also there are limitations in the database, such as census years that are not transcribed, etc.

Use % as a wildcard to substitute for letters that can vary (Pedersen/Petersen).

Are you able to register on Slaegt og Data DIS-Danmark? You will find great help there. If someone else finds a record for you, then it will be easier for you to find it yourself in the database, as practice in using the database.

It takes time to learn. It's hard. We can be grateful for the fabulous help from volunteers!
