BURCHARDI family from Denmark
My grandparents, Johannes C. BURCHARDI and Karen Margrethe JOHANNESEN, immigrated from Denmark in 1891 and 1893, respectively. They finally settled in Solvang, CA when that town was established in 1911.
I am researching both the BURCHARDI and JOHANNESEN families. The JOHANNESENS were from Sonder Nissum in Denmark. Johannes' parents, Adolph and Anna BURCHARDI were from Schleswig-Holstein and so were originally German. They settled in Denmark in the 1860s and were dairy farmers. Thanks to my great grandfather, Adolph BURCHARDI, we have a narration about his family and their 12 children. Unfortunately it is in Danish, and I can't read it.
I've had a few pages translated, but it is such an imposition to ask someone to translate more that I haven't tried. I have Danish cousins who are helping, but they don't have too much extra time for such time consuming work.
I already feel like I know my family so much more from my genealogy research. All of my grandparents were either dead or very elderly when I was born, so I never knew them directly.
