Dear Geraldine,

At 19:30 17-06-2007, you wrote:

I'll see if I can find anything. However, it appears >from your
information that none of the persons mentioned were born in
Denmark, so looking for them if they only stayed here for a
shorter or longer period will not be easy, particularly as the
name JACOBSEN/JACOBSON is a fairly common name in Denmark -
it is both a Jewish and a non-Jewish name.

And as I read your message Dine was married and thus might be
listed under her married name if she was here in Denmark or in
another Scandinavian country.

What was her married name and what was the name of her children?

Maybe it would be easier to find Dine in the passenger lists when
sailing to Scotland (if she came through one of the Scandinavian
countries) in the Danish Emigration Archives online database:

You can also search the censuses at the
http://ddd.dda.dk/DDD_EN.HTM
but as Jacobsen is a common name, you'll have to make many searches.

Send some more information so it'll be easier to try to help you.

Best regards

Dear Geraldine,

My first thought would be that JACOBSEN has it's roots in Scandinavia, the
name meaning son of Jacob (or Yacov). The name in Eastern Europe would have
had another ending - ovitch, vitch - becoming Yacovitch, Yacovicz,
Jacobovitch or something along those lines, also meaning son of Jacob
(Yacov) in Russian or Latvian.

Hopes this help.
