What is the best means of tracking down an apprentice using danishfamilysearch.com?
My gg grandfather Lars Larsen, according to these statements by his daughter, was a wheelwright apprentice for three years and then worked in the "cabinet making business" in Copenhagen for five years:
"He lived with his grandmother until he was fourteen years old. At this time he left school and became an apprentice to learn the Wheelwright trade. For three years while he learned the trade he suffered many hardships. He lived in an unheated room and had only one cooked meal a week, which was Sunday dinner.“
"His employer treated him very cruelly. When his hands were frozen and covered with large sores, he was forced to work, in spite of the excruciating pain. When he had finished this training he went to Copenhagen. Here he entered the cabinet making business, which he pursued until he was twenty-two years old".
He was born in Monge, Vejby, Holbo, Frederiksborg in 1838 and I can find him on all of the census records in Frederiksborg county up until the records of 1855 and 1860. He emigrated to America in 1861 so I know that he was still alive during those years of 1855 and 1860. Does anyone have any knowledge or ideas about searching records for tradesmen or apprenticeships?
