Discover your own family tree

Since Anders Kjærulf settled in Vadum around 1400 The Kjærulf family has grown continuously. Now the family database contains almost 11,000 Kjærulfs. Data has been gathered by many people starting with Bertel Kjærulf (1582 - 1672) and continuing with Peder Laursen Dyrskjøt (1630-1707) and Carl Klitgaard (1868-1957). Finally Charles Taylor Kierulff, "CAP", has made an enormous effort in getting contributions from around the world and building a database with all the information. The database is still growing as new information appears related to newborn Kjærulfs and newly discovered family members.

You have access to all the data and you can check whether information about yourself and your branch of the family is correct. If not correct or incomplete you should notify Cap by e-mail: capkierulff at It is also possible for you to create your own family tree from the data starting from Anders Kjærulf in 1400.

Here is how you get access to data on your family:

The family database is an updated version of Caps book "Twentieth Century Kjaerulfs" (TCK) on this website. You can retrieve all pages in the database below using Acrobat Reader. You can search for your own name and members of your branch of the family. Alternatively you can ask Cap Kierulff to create your family tree and pay him a small fee for his effort (click here to discover how).

If you do not have Acrobat Reader on your computer you can download it free of charge from Acrobat by clicking on the Acrobat icon below.  You can also retrieve a copy of Carl Klitgaards book "Kjærulfske Studier" in Danish.

Please note that the amount of data is large and you would need a fast connection to internet to retrieve data within a reasonable time. It is recommended that you have a fast internet connection.
