Marriage Record - Peder Jensen and Christine Funk Lund

In starting the descendancy research for the Lund family, I'm taking a look at Didrich and Karen's oldest child, Christine Funk Lund. Below is her marriage record.

  • new.familysearch.org did not have the correct information for her marriage. The dates all said abt 1861. I believe this is because they also have a son, Lewis, listed as born in 1861. If studying the Funk/Lund's in Denmark have taught me anything it's that illegitimacy was not uncommon.
  • I have Christine's christening record from the Aaker parish. She is married in the Nylarsker parish, her family's home parish. She and Peder were both vaccinated (for smallpox) by the same physician on the same day. This leads me to believe that they were living in the same parish at the time. I believe that to be the Nylarsker parish. I will need to find a christening record for Peder Jensen (which will hopefully list his vaccination as well). 
  • Along those same lines, I may be able to find a confirmation record for both Peder and Christine in the Nylarsker parish.
  • My next step will be to find them in the Danish Census and see if I can verify any children for them. Also, since there are children listed in FamilySearch I can start with those birth dates in mind when searching to see if I can verify them.
