Australier efterlyser familie med navnet Riis.
« Dato: 29. Juni 2013 kl:23:43 »
Er der nogen der kan hjælpe her.

Hi,
My brother is coming to Bornholm in the next few days in search of some family history. He was interested in meeting anyone who may be related to us. Our ancestor was Fredrick August Riis born in 1826 in Bornholm. He was the first one to come to Australia and allegedly 'jumped ship' in Victoria. I can't find too much information on him but here is a document I found: http://www.byholmvej3.dk/download/Rønne%20Byfoged%209.pdf   When arriving in Australia his name somehow changed to Frederick August Rees hence why my last name is name Rees. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 Thank you,
Natalie Rees

Hello Natalie.

I already send you information about  Frederik August Riis.

May be some one at Bornholm knows something about the parents of
Hans Hanse Riis Born about 1777 and died 22 febr 1851 Ronne.
He was married with Ingeborg Nielsdatter ( or  Nielsen )
She was born 26 febr 1785 Akirkeby and died 2 febr 1839 Ronne.
Marriage was 6 may 1809 Ronne.
