Thank you, folks.
Frank, I have not had good luck with the Family Search thing on the
Danish side of my family, using their International search feature.
It does not seem to be well indexed. I looked for my great
grandmother in just Denmark, and found no records; then I found her

anyone with her last name that there she was, with the exact name I
had previously searched for. I did search for the German folks in the
international database but turned up zilch also.
Although I owe the LDS a debt in that they apparently paid for and
provided a lot of volunteer labor for getting images of the Danish
parish registers online at the Danish government site. That site is
