Using Timelines

In my decendency research of the Lund family, I am currently focusing on Didrich and Karen's oldest daughter, Christine, and her family. I have collected a lot of documents and know a lot more now than I did before. But, I still have a few questions I need to answer before I can keep going.

  • What do I know so far?
  • Where are there holes in the timeline?
  • Are there records available to fill in the holes?
  • Where can I go from here?

I think that making a timeline will help me answer these questions. So, using my Roots Magic software, I selected Peder Jensen and his wife Christine Funk Lund and their children to create a timeline report and saved it as a word document. This document includes the citations, so I can refer to them as needed.


Below I've added my timeline so far. I've also added ideas for further research.

Confirmation – I should be able to find a confirmation record for Peder, and possibly for Christine. They would have been confirmed in their teens, prior to their 19th birthday.

  • Christine's LDS baptism/confirmation -- I have four different dates for Christine's baptism. I need to see if I can find her in the Bornholm Branch records. Also, I'll need to take a look at what Family Search has. It would not be surprising to find that she was baptized while alive and then had the work done for her as well.
  • All the "blue" facts come from the FamilySearch Family Group Record sheet for Didrich, Christine's father.
  • 1888 is the last time I have real, verified information for the Jensen family.

Where can I go from here?
Besides looking up the records listed above in purple, I have some other ideas.
  1. 1890 Danish Census - Where are the Jensen's? Are they still in Denmark or have they immigrated?
  2. Nylarsker Parish records - I will continue my search for future years to see if I can find death records for Peder and Christine as well as possible marriage records for their two sons.
  3. I know from Jacob Peter's christening record that he immigrated to America ... perhaps I could find a passenger list for him? Or, maybe find him in a US Census.
Obviously, I'd like to find children for Laurits and Jacob. But, I need to know more! Onward!
