Family List

Rasmussen Contacts – The “Rasmussen” list

We are trying to gather and list all Rasmussen connected people. The list consists of their name/spouse, the Rasmussen line they are out of (i.e. Will, Ras, Chris or Maurice), and their parent’s name and sometimes their grandparent’s name. We also need to know where you are living. We are getting names that are fourth generation or more. We have really re-connected the Rasmussen bunch.

*I pulled this list off my Rasmussen Distribution List plus more. If you know of any corrections or additions please e-mail me (Lsmithtwin@comcast.net) and let me know, I would love to add them. I am trying to gather all the Rasmussen’s e-mails. Some of the people in this group are only related to the Rasmussens by the wedding cake. A constant change of names from generation to generation was common back then. Sometimes the boy took the father’s first name as a last time. Same with girl’s taking one of the parent’s first name and then adding “sen” or “datter”. Sometimes the family would decide to take on the name of the farm they were living on. Sometimes they would take the landowner’s name. Sometime they would make up a name or they would suddenly change the spelling. This why tracing of families is so hard.

Please enjoy and feel free to leave us a comment below. We are continually looking for photo albums and the names of “Rasmussen” people to add to our distribution list.

    Im looking for the roots of my family, could use help. After a brief read through im certain that our family should be on here. The furthest back i can go is my great grandmother Betty. She lived in california last. Her son James Rasmussen my grandfather. His Kids were Cindy, Theresa, Ronnie and James (my father). We came from California and now reside in Puyallup,WA. I know that our descendents came from Wisconsin at some time. Any help would be nice, I have access to alot of info as well.

  6. Enrique Treat Gleason-Aguiluz says:

    I am in search for any information and documents regarding my 2nd great grandmother Grethe (Greta) Rasmussen. She was apparently born in Christiania (Oslo) Norway in about 1825. She apparently married and later divorced my 2nd great grandfather Henrick (Henry) Eckmann. Henrick (Henry) Eckmann was apparently from Germany (maybe Hamburg, Germany). Grethe Rasmussen and Henrick Eckmann had four or more children (George Frederick Christian Eckmann; Margaret Eckmann; and Julia Augusta Gotfried Eckmann). Julia Augusta Gotfried Eckmann is my great grandmother (born 10 Nov 1850 in Christiana (Oslo) Norway). Any information and/or documents will be greatly appreciated. My e-mail address is: treatgleason@sbcglobal.net. By the way, I am a direct-line descendant of Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne “Charles The Great” King of the Franks.
