I've been working on the profile for Victor Borge.  His birth name was Børge Marinus Rosenbaum, born in Copenhagen, Denmark. I believe his Last Name At Birth should be Rosenbaum, with Borge as his Current Last Name.  Can we change it?

Also, he is currently Unconnected.  His father, Bernhard Rosenbaum, was actually very well known in Denmark and received the Order of the Dannebrog.  Apparently Bernhard's father Nathan was a cigar maker, originally from Germany.  Can anyone help me connect Victor?

For the LNAB, try a message to the profile manager, as she is the only one with rights to change this. For the connection - I'd love to help but my plate is a bit full at the moment. I'll see if I can free up a little time to squeeze in a look though.

If the PM is unresponsive, let us know. The Notables Team might be able to find a creative way to assist, but the PM does appear to be active often enough to assist.

I did send a message to the PM yesterday, and I added a note to the profile today.  The PM hasn't been on WT for a couple of months, so it may take her a while to respond. It isn't urgent.

He was named Børge Marinus Rosenbaum. He changed his name 1942 to Victor Borge. He thought Victor was more musical like, and Borge because no one could say Ø.

You can find the family here : http://www.politietsregisterblade.dk/component/sfup/?controller=politregisterblade&task=viewRegisterblad&id=2278728&limitstart=0

If you can translate from Danish to English here is a newspaper article about him.
