Danish Puzzle Part Two: Dorte Hansen

And then, my mysterious great-great grandmother has the decency to pop up right quick, with the correct birth date, parents’ names, and everything.

Ane Dorthe Hansen birth

And on these two pages, there is an Ane Dorthe Hansen in the 1860 census, servant on a large farm. There just so happens to be a Peter Rasmussen of the correct age working on the same farm. Hmmm.

(I cut out a few of the workers that I couldn’t fit between the two pages.)

It also appears, from the Familysearch.org records, that Ane Dorthe had a sister named Sidsel Marie Hansen who was baptized on the same day as she. Were they twins? When I go to the filmed records in the Danish Archives, neither one is shown in the Vestenskov records. I am suspicious, though, because it appears that every child baptized in that parish for at least 18 months was a boy. Are there separate registries for boys and girls? Am I missing something in the translation?
