Jensen Genealogy

The Jensen Family

Although I start with Jensen, because of the practice of creating a child's surname by adding -sen to the father's name there are many names represented here. If you have any questions, or think there may be a common ancestor to what I've got posted, or if you find any mistakes, please email me.


Rootsweb Jensen Surname Message Board

Do you have information on Jensens that you'd like to share, but you're not sure how to? Perhaps you've got an old family Bible that is falling appart and you'd like to preserve the entries for later reference? Biographies of your ggg-grandmother Kirsten that you'd like to make available to all her descendants? One way to share this type of resource without giving up the originals is to post it to the Roostweb surname boards. When you are posting information (eg. bible entries, histories, wills, ect.) make sure to mark your what type of information you're posting.
