Welcome

Mit navn er  Finn Kofoed og jeg er webansvarlig for dette sted.

Jeg har i snart 50 år forsket i min bornholmske slægts aner og historie i kirkebøger og folketællinger m.v. på Landsarkivet og lokalhistoriske arkiver, suppleret med litteratur og historiske optegnelser.

 

Starten til det hele var min elskede far, Herman Peter Kofoed, med hans store viden og interesse for Bornholm og Bornholms historie. 

Den direkte slægtslinje er min fars familie Kofoed (Koefoed) fra Koefoedgaard i Østermarie og min mors familie Pedersen og Jespersen, der havde udgangspunkt i Østermarie og Østerlars. Hertil kommer navne fra mange indgiftede familier, også mest med rødderne på Bornholm. Billedet øverst til højre er familien Koefoeds oprindelige våbenskjold.

Lidt om navnet: Når man hedder Kofoed er ingen danskere vel i tvivl om, hvor man stammer fra. Der findes andre efternavne som kun findes på Bornholm, men Kofoed er vist det mest kendte.

 

Mange har spurgt mig, hvor mange Kofødder der er i Danmark, og her er svaret fra Danmarks Statistik pr. 1. jan 2014:

Kofod 1.638 personer
Kofoed 2.755 personer
Koefoed 857 personer
Koefod 4 personer                        ialt 5.254 personer 

Som det ses, så er der 4 måder at stave navnet på: Koefoed, Kofoed, Koefod og Kofod. Nogle forskere mener at e'erne blev brugt til at signalere stand. Jo flere e'er man fik puttet ind, jo finere var man - Koefoed som overklassens, Kofoed som middelklassens og Kofod som underklassens version. Har du spørgsmål eller bemærkninger, vil det glæde mig meget at høre fra dig. Du kan kontakte mig ved at klikke here.
