Hello!
I'm a total newbie when it comes to researching Danish sources, maybe somebody can help me... I'm looking for the parents of Mathilde Christiane Westerberg, born 21st of February 1904 i Copenhagen. The only source I can find about her is this list, where I assume she's said to be living in an orphanage: https://www.danishfamilysearch.com/cid18731161

Is there a way to find information about her parents? I'm grateful for any advice and help.

Milja

Milja,

Please read in the Copenhagen, Sankt Paul church book Mathilde Kristiane Westerberg *21.2.1904

born to Ugift Kristjana Johannesdotter (27 years old) and Udl. F. Sømand John Ferdinand Westerberg

Might be this sailor (sømand) who married Marthe Marie Andersen in Århus Vor Frue on 19.12.1909

I found the parents in Politiets Mandtal (in Copenhagen) living Adelgade 52, May 1904 - Johan Vestenberg and Kristine Johannesen

The mother Christiane Johannesdatter *3.12.1884 living in Copenhagen

Johan Westenberg

The mother married Hjalmar Hans Reidl - 1930 Census

Kind regards

Britta Hansen

Thank you so much, Britta! John Ferdinand Westerberg is my great grandfathers cousin.  This was great news.
