Welcome to the Myrup family’s website. It describes the family of Myrup, originating from the former village of Myrup in Lild Parish in Vester Han Herred (‘Herred’ is similar to District) in what is now known as Lild Klit (‘klit’ means dune) between the cities Hanstholm and Fjerritslev in Northern Jutland.

The three families

There exist three Myrup families that originate from the little village of Myrup. Each of the three families I, II and III are described with the ancestors, their forefathers and a number of A.-branches – the ancestors’ children.

For living persons, the date and place of birth and marriage are not specified.

Under construction

The English part of the website is still under construction and I refer to the Danish site.
