Help! Now there is 8 x Great Grandparents. 10. Generation in all there is 512 couples in this generation, unfortunately I have only found 9 persons. As I gradually read 21 books with generation and names I will fall apond more names for the Norwegian side. The danish part will be more difficult to come deaper into, but it can be done, it just takes more time and energy to do it. We are so far into the past that finding out more is very minumal. I only know a small bit of it. For the most part the information I can get is from the church books where the children's names are listed. In these books at that time the names were not written under the mother's names only the father's names, so it is unknown whom the mother was to these children. Church books were first kept in Jutland in 1645 which is just a guess.
