Hello, could someone please interpret the link below for Jens Bondesen?  I know his mother was Christine Bondesen and looks as though father listed here is Niels Ostergaard.

This is my great-great Grandfather and would be a mystery solved if we could find out his fathers full name and any further details about his birth.  Thank you very much!

Hi Mary,


I read the text as;


20 Marts

29 Marts, uægte fødsel [illegitimate birth - birth outside marriage]

Christine Knudsdatters uægte Søn: [illegitimate Son]

Jens Bondesen. Moderen er en ægte Datter af [The mother is a legitimate daughter of]

Inderstholdene [lodgers] Knud Johansen og Marine Nielsdatter

Bondesen i [in] Fjelstrup.

Det er hendes tredje uægte Barn. [This is her 3rd illegitimate child]

Som udlagt Fader anmeldte Gjordemoderen [As told father notified the midwife] Gaard-

mand [farmer] Niels Geertsen Østergaard i Knud.

Faddere: [godfathers] Christen Vork af [of] Knud.

Laue Bondesen ibid [same place]

Mette Kirstine Matthiesen af Hauge.


Hope this give what you were asking about.

That the father name are; Niels Geertsen Østergaard

and that the mother have already born 2 children before Jens Bondesen.
