PostSubject: Hello from Denmark   Sat Jul 21, 2007 9:48 am

Hi everyone.

I finally decided to join this forum. I have been a HUGE fan of Little house since I was about 7 when the show aired for the first time in Denmark. I watched it whenever I could and have been addicted since then.
6 years ago it aired again but on a channel I didn´t have so I had my grandfather tape it for me. I made him tape all the episodes which revolved around Laura and Almanzo and today the tapes are almost worn out. :D

Well a little about myself. My name is Anja. I´m 19 and live in a town called Horsens in Jutland, Denmark. I´m also a member of the Dr Quinn forum since May but I will always love Little house more. I have read some of the books by LIW but unfortunately not every one of them.
I just graduated from Gymnasiet which is a school form ala college so now I have a gap year and am currently working at an elderly home for two months.
If you have any oher questions feel free to ask ;)

Hugs from me :peace:

Goddag, Anja! Welcome to the board!

Do you like Russian history? I'm wondering because of the GrandDuchessOlga name.

Have a good time here! Thumbsup

Thanks everyone!

Rob, to answer your question. Yes I´m quite fascinated by Russian history. Did a paper about the revolution in 1917 in december last year. I´m particular interested in the tsar family. Don´t know why but I´m a little obsessed with the oldest daughter of the last tsar, Olga... therefore the name and I somehow think it sounds cool Cool

Have you read the book Nicholas and Alexandra by Robert and Suzanne Massie? It's very interesting.

No unfortunately I haven´t but I´ve heard about it. Correct me if I´m wrong but isn´t that the one that was turned into the movie "Nicholas and Alexandra"?

Do you have an interest in Russian history too?

Yes, I believe that was made into a movie. I didn't see it, though. And yes, I'm interested in Russian history. All history, really, including Danish. I live in a small town that was settled primarily by Danish immigrants in the late 19th century. My grandparents on my father's side came from Denmark. Thumbsup

I like history in general too, and especially Danish cause, well it´s where I come from hehe Laughing (although I only received an average grade in school Blue )

Wow you have Danish roots! that´s so cool. That explains why you wrote "goddag" in your first post here. I can see that you are from Michigan. Funny since my maternal grandfather´scousin and aunt are immigrants from Denmark and live in Michigan. Is it crowded with Danes there? grinsmiley

Oh yes, lots of Danes. Many, many Olsens and Hansons, just like on Little House. Laughing

One of our early settlers was Rasmus Hanson, who became one of the great lumber barons in the country. Here's a link to his house, which is now a bed & breakfast inn:

Thanks for the link, Rob. The house is so beautiful and it actually looks like Laura and Almanzo´s house, the one they got from Mrs Flannery.
I think it´s really interesting that we share history because of the people immigrating to the states back then. It´s fascinating for me, I think, to know about some my countrymen settling there...

The person I mentioned, Rasmus Hanson, brought many of his friends and relatives here from Denmark after he was settled and making his fortune. My grandfather was the caretaker of his house - the one in that link I sent you.

It is very interesting that we have a shared heritage from across the ocean. Thumbsup
