OLSEN (Denmark)

Meaning/Pronunciation: Pronunciation: Ole-Sen. Meaning: Son of Ole

Origin: Danish

Variations: As with all Scandinavian Patronymics, there are other variations for the other countries—Olson, Olsson, etc.

Relation to me: My dad’s mother’s mother’s mother.

i: Olsen, Maren, 1855 – 1923, Slots-Bjergby, Denmark; Rasmus Hansen, 3 sons, 3 daughters

ii: Larsen, Ole, ? - ?, Denmark ?; Birthe Schrøder, 1 daughter known

Looking for:
As you can see, there is not a whole lot known here. I recently found Ole and Birthe (Birthe Marie) looking up Maren in a database, so I am pretty confident these were her parents. The record listed her full name, birthdate, and birth place, so it seems less likely to be a different child with exactly those three things matching. However, this is all I know of her family, so any information on her, her siblings, or her parents would be more than welcomed.

About this blog

This blog is maintained by two sisters who have had a life long interest in geneology.
Mika writes here mostly about our family (Hansen, Hillinger, Bordewick, Park, etc), and her search for more information.
Shannon mostly uses this space as a place to make the many stories written about and by her husband's family (Holly, Walker, Walpole, etc) available to the rest of the family, present and future.

Our blog is named Oh Spusch! mostly because Shannon is bad at naming things. The first post I put up includes a story about the time Walker's great grandfather took his whole family out to see a play and the littlest kept saying "Oh! Spusch!" No one ever figured out what she meant by that.
