Hi everybody,

Just in case it helps with future research: There are a few versions of place names in this thread, which might confuse things.

Just for info, the current local spellings are:
District: Dithmarschen (not Dirthmarschen)
Place: Schwienhusen (not Schweinhusen)

Tyskland is simply the Danish name for Germany, in case that wasn't clear. :-)

This link takes you to the right area. If you zoom in, you'll see Delve in the upper right section of the marked area. Zoom in more, and Schwienhusen appears.

Funnily enough, we're planning a holiday a few minutes from there!

Best regards,
Karen
