Show family tree starting with Thomas Jensen Juhl

Thomas attended elementary school like all other children at that time. He did however attend schools in three different villages, because his parents moved twice during his school days. After he turned 10, he was out serving various families every summer, because at that time children only attended school during the winter time after the age of 10. According to comments in Thomas' servant's conduct book, he was a hardworking and loyal person.

The first time the family moved from Branderup to Lindknud in 1876. Branderup was in Schleswig and was therefore part of the German Confederation from 1864. It is unknown, why the family moved, but Lindknud was in Denmark, and not Schleswig. The parents had to file an application to be relieved of their Prussian Citizenship, and as soon as the request was granted, they moved to Lindknud.

Thomas was enlisted for military service from 1882. According to his registration in the military levying rolls he met for service under the 3rd dragoon regiment on 5 January 1886 and was sent home on 7 March 1888. In 1887 he was a stableman during actual warfare. From February 1895 he was under the reserve force. In januar 1901 he was discharged.

In 1889 Thomas was employed as a winter teacher in Holsted, and he kept that job for the next 40 years. Working 40 years at the same place was not unusual back then, however, it was relatively unusual for a man to be a teacher at that time. That was a women's job. However, it does seem like Thomas felt that the job was a kind of calling for him. He has written a lot about it, and his notes did in fact become the start of a family book for that part of my family.
