Niels Christensen Routh (1824-1911)
from Borbjerg parish
Even I am only a distant relative to the family of Niels Christensen Routh, I decided to include this family in my website, because my family for generations were close friends to Niels Christensen Rouths family. The friendship is mainly through Niels Christensen Rouths youngest daugther, Laura, and her family. See below.
Later I found that I have common ancestors to one of Niels Rouths decendants and that more friends in Borbjerg parish are decendants of Niels.
As american members of the family to me have expressed great interest in trying to develop contacts to the danish members, I hereby try to be a little helpful.
Hope that the US family can learn something from my Danish records.
The american members had in 2008 their own website:
Webmaster, Bruce Waldon, 4th generation after Niels Chr. Routh.
This site is not active any more.
2014 Bruce´s cousin Bob Nelsen started a closed group, to which you can be invited, if you have a facebook profile.
