" RASMUSSEN " RESEARCH NOTES
Hello to all members and ( erassy ). This journal is about the enquiry you made = " Looking for my Great Grandfather -Gary Hans Rasmussen "
I think you are going to need more Dates/ ages / etc' . I did a brief search for this person . I found they were not able to be sorted into the possible person we are looking for because we couldn't use a date to say _ Thats Him. I tried using a time frame measurement ,that some of us geneoligists use , to find the possible date area we need to be in and used its adjustments . It works like this .
WE say the researcher's ( 50 ) or older
next take the average between generations ( Father to eldest child =
( 25 years )
We then use the adjustment in the year time frame of = 0 -2 -5 -10 - 20
to cover the time generation of that person .
If the name is correct , and the info / entry is their in the records we have found this method , has a success rate of over 87 % .
The following is what I did find -
Their is about 80 entries for " Gary Rasmussen " in Familysearch.org or Ancestry.com. They come from Denmark - Norway or born in USA .They are in several states. The year range is from 1815 to 1981. Many are called Hans Rasmussen In Minesota in The 1880 census their where
( 5 ) Hans Rasmussen - No -Gary Hans Rasmussen . Most times the " Hans " comes first in a name
Their are also ( 3,270 ) family trees in tribalpages.com with the " Rasmussen " name related . I did not search them . Think you may enjoy having a go at them If you could even assess the date of your great Grandfather - it would help you and others to find him . I hopethis journal is of some assistance
Till we meet again Reards -edmondsallan
