Poul Jacobsen "Kinafarer" (1717-75)

A Unique Ancestor Gallery

Unfortunately, we know of no portrait of Poul Jacobsen Kinafarer himself. But there is an unusual gallery of his wife Mette Marie Storm, a son and his wife, and a grandson and his wife.

Until recently, this ancestor gallery was in the possession of a descendant in South-Western Canada. He has generously offered to donate the gallery to the museum in Faaborg from which city the family originates. You are invited to support this project and ensure that the ancestor gallery is properly preserved and exhibited where is belongs. Read more ..
