Didrich Funch - Christening Record

Danish State Archives, "Kirkebøger," digital images, Statens Arkivers Arkivalieronline (www.sa.dk/ao/ : downloaded 15 July 2011), Didrich Funch, Christening Record, 1816; Nylarskar Parish.

This one was really hard to read. I did the best I could then asked the experts over at the Family Search Denmark Forum. JensenJN helped me out again and filled in some of the missing information.

Christine Didrichsdatter
at home at Degnegaarden in
Nylarsker, claimed by Henrich
Pedersen's wife of Degnegaarden

who has traveled away ./bachelor/.

From JensenJN:
some words are spelled different in today's Danish:

  • ugivt is now ugift = unmarried
  • quinde is now kvinde = woman, the spelling is very old and believed to be the origin of the English word 'Queen'
  • tilhuse actually 'at house' would today not be used. We would today use 'boede' = lived

Now I have a few questions...First, where did the last name Funch come from? Didrich's mother's, Gertrude, last name was Didrichsdatter (so her father was named Didrich?)...was his last name Funch? Didrich's father is listed as Johan Rihs and Gertrude is listed as unmarried. Did she ever marry Johan? When and who did she marry? I'll have to keep digging in the parish records. I should also track down the index register and see what that has to say.

I signed up for some classes at the Family History Library in SLC specifically on researching in Denmark. I'm super excited to learn even more!
