I am indebted to Anna Laursen and Birthe Laursen for the many beautiful photographs that they have sent me and all the fascinating information that they have told me.
This is a picture of the home of Ane Kirstine Andersdatter. She is the ancestor of Anna and Birthe. She is also the Aunt of Abelone.
Anna Laursen's home in Glud, Denmark. This is very close to where Dorthe (Tena) was born.
