Thanks its easier if you add a WikiTree profile and tell us what you and also create a Research Notes section what sources you have tried...


== Research Notes ==

# Problem finding records in Denmark
## Tested search at Ancestry.com on Emigration records - no success


should have included his parents names of grandparents who are Maren Christine Jensen and Hans Christian Simon Arnold Petersen .My dad was in the Cdian Force  and visit his mother grave in 1952 in Copenhagen My dad married Maude Priscilla Stick .Dad once said his family was large  of maybe of 8 children have tried just about every possible way'Thanks again Christine R

It's easier if you create WikiTree profiles for the people.... with what sources you have and what sources you have checked without results

Could this be his father?


It is the same 5 names but not quite the same order? Born 1879 makes sense if his son is born 1907.

It is from the census 1880.

I think tis could be his family living in Copenhagen. He is not listed, but children were not listeed until the age of 10, so maybe that is the reason.


It turns out that Kaj was never registered in his fathers card, but got his own when he was 14, he is still living with his parents on the last address on his fathers card


The following year he moved to an adress nearby. These cards were used until 1923, so there is no later information

thank you very much we are on the track from the info you gave me .I have pictures with names on the who are Edith Elna  Axsel One sister died when she fell down an elevator when she was 16 years and a brother who was deaf and mute and there a picture of sailor maybe a brother of  Kaj married my mother in Montreal who was Maude P.Stick .He was also a pro boxer in Denmark but after a fight one night on the street one man died but I can not  get any info on these events and Kaj was pastry chief also  and he left Copenhagen in 1929 I would be so happy to get the family going On my mother side I have got back to the 1500 and that  why I don't know what Im doing wrong on this tree Any help is welcome Thank you again Christine R. Petersen /Rasch g2g6

I am glad you find the input useful.

I looked the family up in the 1916 census on the address on the Police Register Card. You can see the family here: https://www.sa.dk/ao-soegesider/da/billedviser?bsid=71981#71981,13023716 They at the bottom of the page

They are at the same address in 1921: https://www.sa.dk/ao-soegesider/da/billedviser?bsid=79990#79990,13611887

The parents and Aksel is still on the address in 1925 https://www.sa.dk/ao-soegesider/da/billedviser?bsid=100470#100470,16013289
