Nancy Marianne Clara Blytmann, botn September 7, 1873

Thyra Blytmann married Jens Lauritz Jensen on January 18, 1895. Lauritz (he never used the name Jens) was on the Danish Army General Staff  where he was in charge of cartography, especially for Iceland, which at the time was a part of Denmark. He and his staff made many surveying trips to Iceland during the latter part of the 1800's and into the early 1900's. Due to a general lack of hotels the surveying teams were generally quartered in private farms. He wrote an extensive diary of his experiences, which is in the possestion of the family today.

KNUD BLYTMANN, COPENHAGEN, DENMARK, 1918. HE WAS A SOLDIER DURING THE FIRST WORLD WAR, BUT NEVER SAW ANY MILITARY ACTION.

Knud Blytmann (1897-1990) and Iris Isabella Stredal (1913-1993) married in 1936. They lived for about a year and a half in New York where their first child, Tage (yes, that's me) was born. My brother Finn and sister Lis were born a few years later.

After returning to Denmark in 1937-38 the Blytmann's lived for a short time in Copenhagen before moving to Risskov near Aarhus. At the end of the second world war the family moved to Gentofte where they lived for many years.
