Bregnet Church and Cemetery, Rønde, Denmark (Tombstone Tuesday)

In the summer of 2011 the three of us – my wife, my daughter and myself – made a round trip in Denmark and Northern Germany. On our way to (or from?) Kalø Castle in Rønde, Jylland (Jutland), we made a short stop at Bregnet Church.

The church building is from the second half of the 15th century. It underwent a major restoration in 1872 and 2006. More information and photos can be found on Wikipedia (in Danish). I believe the church was closed, so we never got to see the interior.

Published articles and Slektshistoriewiki contributions, 2017

Here is a survey of the articles I have written and got published during 2017. With one exception they were all published in Genealogen, the newsletter of Norsk Slektshistorisk Forening, the Norwegian Genealogical Society.

  • «Status for Slektshistoriewiki», Genealogen no. 1/2017, pp. 59–60.

I have also helped out with proofreading all issues of Genealogen and Norsk Slektshistorisk Tidsskrift published in 2017. My bibliography, although not complete, can be viewed here.

I have mentioned earlier in my blog that I am one of the administrators of Slektshistoriewiki, the Norwegian genealogy wiki, which is administered by Norsk Slektshistorisk Forening (the Norwegian Genealogical Society). Besides administration work I have contributed with many articles over the years.

Here are some (but far from all) of the articles I written (both initiated and written most, if not all, of the updates) during 2017:

Book presentations
In addition I have updated many articles that I have initiated earlier. A survey of all my contributions can be viewed here.
