Fairy Tale Event Denmark, April 1-3 2005

Four pioneers in Europe (Sofia, Collette, Carsten and Felix) would like to invite the network to an extraordinary event in Denmark, at April 1st to April 3rd 2005.
It will be a chance for everyone to take a break from normal daily life and dive into a mystical weekend where the spirit of Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairy Tales is welcoming you.
[Hans Christian Andersen’s 200th Birthday will be celebrated on April 2]

We would like to take the energy of the world of fairy tales and use it to reflect on our own stories. By using different exercises we would like to explore with you the inner stories and questions of all of us and with the help of a fairy tale flow game we see those deeper dialogues become clearer and more present.

Jeg synger om en Mand, saa er den gamle Tone;
Hvad, om man sang engang for Løier om en Kone?

J.H. Wessel, Fragment uden titel

Arkiv for Dansk Litteratur - Hans Christian Andersen

Jeg finder, at Eventyr-Digtningen er Poesiens meest udstrakte Rige, det naaer fra Oldtids blodrygende Grave til den fromme barnlige Legendes Billedbog, optager i sig Folke-Digtningen og Kunst-Digtningen, det er mig Repræsentanten for al Poesie, og den, som mægter det, maa heri kunne lægge ind det Tragiske, det Komiske, det Naive, Ironien og Humoret, og har her baade den lyriske Streng, det Barnligtfortællende og Naturbeskriverens Sprog til sin Tjeneste

af "At være eller ikke være" 1857, Esthers replik i Tredie Deel, kap. VI.

Age of Nelson: "Here you can find out about two new massive and authoritative databases covering the Royal Navy officers who fought in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars 1793-1815, and the seamen and marines who fought at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.
Thousands of hours of careful research have gone into creating these databases, which you can sample here, or you can buy the CDs, with all the latest information. Regular updates will be made available."

Trafalgar 200 Events at the Royal Naval Museum

The Trafalgar Documents

This exhibition will showcase manuscripts relating to Nelson and HMS Victory during the Trafalgar campaign. Personal letters sent from Nelson at sea will be presented alongside operational orders to the fleet, and working records from HMS Victory. This will be a rare chance to see items which are not suitable for permanent display. The exhibition will be installed in the ‘Nelson; the Hero and the Man’ and will be specially selected by Dr Colin White.

This will be accompanied by access to ‘The Complete Navy List of the Napoleonic Wars’ recently published by Patrick Marione which is similarly comprehensive for British naval officers 1793-1815.

Seeking Descendants of Those Who Fought
Aboard 'HMS Victory' at Battle of Trafalgar

It is well known that Admiral Lord NELSON's famous victory over the
combined French and Spanish fleets off Cape Trafalgar celebrates its
200th anniversary this year. The United Kingdom has a whole raft of
celebrations in the summer and fall of this year to mark the
achievements of one of her most famous sons.

What is less well known, however, is that at least 24 members of the
Victory ship's company at the battle were from North America. This
naval engagement took place 21 October 1805, which means those who
participated in it were born probably ca 1790 or earlier. Their
names are known, and in some instances their home state or city, but
with one notable exception, beyond that history has swallowed them up.

The exception was Midshipman Richard BULKELEY, who was wounded in the
battle and shared the orlop deck with the dying NELSON for a time. The
U.S. Navy named a World War I mine clearance vessel after him. His
two most recent descendants both served with distinction in the U.S.
Navy. They are: Vice Admiral John D. BULKELEY (1911-1996), who was
awarded the Medal of Honor in World War II when commanding a motor
torpedo boat squadron in Philippine waters. His son, retired Navy
Captain Pete BULKELEY still lives.

See also Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships:

But what of the other descendants? The Naval Attaché at the British
Embassy in Washington, D.C. is trying to find others who know of their
ancestral links to the "HMS Victory" and the Battle of Trafalgar. A lot
of the surnames are very common, so the attaché does not intend to
list them in case there are those who think they might have a link based
only on a common surname connection.

A commemorative event is planned
later in the year -- if some descendants can be found. If you know you
have an ancestor who was on this ship at the Battle of Trafalgar, then
please contact the attaché with that genealogical information

[Editor's Note: This is not an offer to do any genealogical research, so
please do not contact the attaché to search for your ancestors.]
