My ancestor was born in Aarhus on 15 August 1843. His father Christian was a shopkeeper. In 1864 my great great grandfather fought in in the second Danish war against Germany.
By September 1872 he was working as an able seaman between Australia and The Philippines on the ship James Hannell under the name Robert Christian Smith. In December 1872 he was married in Newcastle NSW and worked in and around ships in Newcastle Harbour while bringing up his Australian family. He died in Newcastle in 1928.
We can find no Robert Smith in any Danish census record. I need a name ! Can anyone please help me break through this brick wall.
Jan Butcher, Newcastle NSW Australia.
