Among Danish immigrants to the United States in the 19th Century, were our four grandparents: Anders Christensen Ravnholt (1870 & 1883); Inger Johanne Thestrup Ravnholt (1883); Ane Marie Henriksen (1880; and Niels Petersen (1885). In an account written in 1960, "My Ancestral Home and Glimpses of its History", our father, Ansgar Benedikt Ravnholt, provided a general family history; and in "The Story of an Immigrant", Albert V. Ravenholt provided an account of the life of our grandfather, Anders C. Ravnholt; succeeded by his work record during his initial visit to America, 1870-1876; followed by his account of "Three Months Traveling", Helena, MT to Denmark;  followed by an account of the life of Inger Johanne Ravnholt by Ansgar Ravnholt; followed by genealogical presentations for descendants of Christen Andersen Ravnholt and Kristian Henriksen; and for Ansgar and Kristine Ravnholt; followed by a presentation for each Ravenholt sibling -- Albert, Halvor, Eiler, Johanne, Reimert, Otto, Gerda, Agnes, Astrid.
