I would like to document the movement of Danes from the towns of Galten and Galtenhof, north of Schleswig-Holstein, into Germany prior to 1848. I would specifically like to track those who kept the surname Galten and moved into the German towns of Nordorf, Kiel, or may have subsequently returned to Denmark or migrated to the US. It would be helpful to have assistance from volunteers in Aarhuis or in the areas where Galten and Galtenhof were located (they are no longer towns as I understand it). The time period is from 1821 through 1884; the place names known so far are Rendsburg, Germany; Kiel, Germany; Kellingshusen, Germany, Nordorf, Germany. The names known so far are Galten, Wulf, Zabel, Bolzen, Luehman, and Gloeh.
