Johannes Andersson and Botilda Johannesdotter …
. .. was two Swedes emigrating to Copenhagen in the beginning of 1860. Botilda from Skepparkroken in Skåne and Johannes from Årstad in Halland. Johannes was brother to Andreas Andersson, wich in turn was grandfather to John/Sigfrid/Birger/Hjalmar. Johannes and Botilda had three children. The sons Anders Johan, Andro and Karl Oskar.
Anders Johan Høg-Andersen
Anders Johan was in the beginning of his service as policeman in Copenhagen told to take a “Kendingsnavn” (a unique name).
He chosed to use his mothers i law family name “Andersen Høgh”. He become accustomed to be told like that and chosed to, after 7 years in service to applay for having this as family name.
Anders Johan was interested in family research and exchanged information about this, including letters, with his cousins children in Sweden. Above all with Sigfrid but also with Hjalmar.
(We don’t knew very much about Andro. Only when he was born, when he died and that he married Marie Christine Nielsen.
Who can tell us more about Andro and his progeny?)
What you can read above I wrote when I designed this page first time. Now, tonight 12 September 2016, we knew so mush more! We are in contact with Andros grandchild Vivi Lea Christiansen. She has brought us a portrait of him and some other picktures.
