+1 vote
In a probate in Porsgrunn, Norway in 1805, a Jens Olsen Grubbe is mentioned, living as a shoemaker in "Hornbech ved København" whither he went 27 years ago.

If there's somebody who knows anything about this guy or even has him among their ancestors, please let me know.

Yes, definitely. My estimate of his birth year abt. 1760 is based on the information that he left for Denmark "27 years ago" (ie. abt. 1778), but this may well be rather off the mark. He probably left soon after confirnation.

The rest of the chronology fits with a birth year about 1767. His mother was born about 1741, and his sister about 1776.
The name of his eldest daughter "Torberine Magdalene Catrine" is a very clear sign that this is the right person. She's obviously named after his mother Torberg.

-and he died in Hillerød December 20th 1818 55 years old Danish National Archives 

Great! But how do I cite this source? I can't see any information about the book anywhere. I'm probably spoiled by the Norwegian Digitalarkivet cool, which provides source info with a single mouse click.

I normally cite with an inline reference like this 

<ref> [ Danish National Archive], København: Frederiksborg Amt, Frederiksborg Slotssogn 1814 - 1834  [,24794092 p. 396]</ref>

OK - it look s wrong here, but I think it will look alright at his profile smiley

Wow, thank you! I'm very unfamiliar with Danish archives, and this is of real help. I just copied and pasted your reference.
Du spørger bare en anden gang - just ask

Thank you Ole! Very nice citation. laugh

But, how do you collect all the (information) parts for it? (I'm thinking if I should build a reference tool for it).

I'm not sure I understand your question - prøv på svensk smiley

Jeg prøver! smiley

När du skriver referensen inkluderar du information som inte syns på bildsidan. Till exempel "København: Frederiksborg Amt".

Var hämtar du den informationen? Vilka sidor kopierar du information från för att skriva källhänvisningen? 

(Bildsidan är alltså,24794092 )

In the 1787 census there are two shoemaker Jens Olsens in Helsingør

1) and 


Maybe you can differentiate them at Skomagerlavet

Tack för den informationen! Nu hittade jag mer information om skräddare också. smiley

OK, det er fordi, jeg ved jo hvordan jeg har søgt siden frem. Først så Frederiksborg Amt og derefter Frederiksborg Slotssogn. Jeg havde fundet begravelsen på Ancestry, så det var jo let nok.
Nå er ikke denne familien av noen spesiell interesse for min del, men det er i alle fall morsomt å finne igjen folk på andre steder enn der de kom fra. Nå er jo denne diskusjonen lenket fra profilen til Jens, og hvis noen vil ta ballen og løpe videre med den, så er det bare å fortsette :) Maria og Ole, tusen takk for hjelpen.
