I'm planning a trip to Denmark next April. My main priority is not Arhus or Copenhagen, but in fact the old county of Hjørring, and by old, I mean 19th century. I am planning on doing genealogy research/taking photos of the area my family was from. The only "problem" is that they moved around quite a bit, and all of these places seem to lack hotels/lodging, etc. or at least any that can be found by me via the internet.
I am interested in Volstrup (Sæby), Understed, Tvaersted, Hjørring, and Åsted primarily. I am planning on going to Frederikshavn to the LDS family center as well, or perhaps the one in Ålborg. I haven't gotten that far yet. I was hoping to do Denmark exclusively by train, but that seems out of the question at this point, so it should be assumed that I will be renting a car.
I am also trying to stay away from staying in Ålborg, as I want the more quintessential feel of Denmark... which is the point of this trip in the first place.
Also, I should mention that I don't entirely understand the divisions that Denmark uses. The 1890 census says my family was living in:
Census year: FT-1890 County: Hjørring
District: Dronninglund Parish: Volstrup Place name: Volstrup, Dyrheden
I get the county, district and parish part. However, I do not understand the "Place name" part. How much smaller does it get than a parish? Is this a very specific location that I could actually find? (That would be amazing!)
Any help one can give about traveling/staying in the area would be greatly appreciated.
