LARSEN Family Album - Other

Last update: 18 Feb 2012

The 1845 Danish census indicates that the Hans LARSEN family lived at No. 1 sidesal, Ovengaden oven Vandet, Christianshavn Kvarter, København, Danmark. The above photo shows Nos. 8 - 10 still existing on the same street. The LARSEN home was likely very similar to what we see here.

(For more information about Christianshavn, go to its Wiki page.)

Christianshavn Canal
Photo taken about 1858

A bird's-eye view of Christianshavn (looking southwest) taken in 1935. Christianshavn Canal runs through the center of the photo and Vor Frelser Kirke (Our Savior's Church) is center, to the left, identified by the corkscrew tower. The street in front of the kirke is Sankt Anne's Gade (St. Anne's Street) where the Larsen family lived in 1850.

København Parish Churches mentioned in LARSEN ancestral history:

Most of these photos are found at Kirker i Danmark (Churches in Denmark). When a photo has a blue border, clicking on it will take you to a page of more information about that church. I have not found web pages for all of these churches, but I have marked them all on my Google map for Denmark and Sweden. Clicking a church name will take you to the site of that church on the map. ~Venita
