If you have lost contact with friends or family that have immigrated to British Columbia, Canada, the Danish Lutheran Church of Vancouver is happy to help you re-establish contact.
First you may want to search the telephone book. Even if there are columns of the name you are looking for in a Danish phone book, there may be only a few in a Canadian phone book. For example, there are two Mogens Hansens in the phone book for Greater Vancouver. Canadian phone books do not use the letters æ, ø, and å; if necessary, replace æ by ae, ø by o or oe, and å by a or aa. Try to search for just the family name since some Danes do not use their Danish given name, for example Jørgen may call himself Jack.
If the phone book doesn’t help, your best bet is to advertise in our newsletter. For example an ad like this:
Please send your ad to . We charge $15 for such an ad.
If an ad in Kirkebladet does not give any new leads, the next step would be to contact the British Columbia Genealogical Society.
