Looking for birth/baptism of Minnie Margaret POULSEN abt 1878
« on: Wednesday 13 December 17 10:21 GMT (UK) »
Minnie Margaret POULSEN was a daughter of Hans POULSEN & Margaret FREESE born abt 1878. 

Minna and her family arrived in Queensland on board the Dorunda on 14 Nov 1883. Minnie/Minna was listed as age 4.

Some family trees have Minnie born 22 Aug 1878 in Worden, Schleswig-Holstein however no verification provided other than other family Trees.

Minna/Minnie died in Queensland 28 OCT 1959.

As far as I know there is no place called Worden in Schleswig-Holstein
I think the place you are looking for is Wöhrden.

https://www.google.de/maps/place/W%C3%B6hrden/@54.2223405,8.7316169,10z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x47b38a36af4e5bdd:0x739bb439bc4d58ed!8m2!3d54.1656197!4d8.9948783

The parish records for Wöhrden are now in the archive in Meldorf.

https://kirche-dithmarschen.de/das-kirchenkreisarchiv/

The registrar, Mr Voß, speaks English so it should be no problem to mail him.
Mr Voß was off duty for 7 months and he now has a quite an overload of extern queries.

Go to pages 59-61 in this PDF for an overview of Wöhrden records

Nothing helpful on her death certificate? Sister's horrible death reported in the newspaper in 1891 but nothing about the family's origins although maternal grandmother mentioned.

Thanks so  much aghadowey & Dave.

Katherina's death was so horrific and it is unimaginable the degree of pain she endured.

Thanks for the leads Dave.

Hello Dave,

Thats wonderful and much appreciated.

The sum total of what I have on Minnie/Mina includes her arrival aged 4 on 14 Nov 1883 in Queensland Australia on board the Dorunda.

On the off chance you may need Minnie's siblings and parents, on arrival they were:
Hans PAULSEN aged 44
Margaret aged 48
Maria aged 18
Wilkie aged 16
Anna aged 10
Welhelm aged 7
Minia aged 4
Hans aged 2

Thanks so much.

Westy
