[Baptismal Certificate]

[Baptismal Certificate]

Date: 1903
Creator: unknown
Description: Certificate from Sigrid Larsen Wind's baptism at Danevang Church written in Danish. There is an illustration at the top of the document of a female angel holding a basin. She is inside a circular motif with a line of bold text going around the top. Additionally, two paper scrolls unroll from leafy branches that decorate the top third of the document. In these scrolls, there are biblical passages from the gospels of John and Mark. Translated from Danish, the passages from John and Mark read: "Unless one is born of water and spirit, he can not be received into God's kingdom" - John 3. 5. "Whosoever believes and is baptized shall be saved, but whoever does not believe shall be damned" - Mark 16. 16. Two more detailed illustrations flank the right and left hand-written parts of the document. The one on the left is of a tall tree in the middle of a deserted, sloping terrain. The image opposite it is of a sailing ship bearing the Danish flag in a large body of water. Four more paragraphs of text are on the bottom flanking an embossed seal.

The very bottom of the document has one final illustration: an open book accompanied by a cross and chalice, also inside a circular motif, and flanked on either side by foliage.

[Duus Family Portrait]

Date: 1942/1947
Creator: unknown
Description: Studio portrait photograph of the Duus family in front of a blank backdrop. The three individuals in the back are standing and embracing each other, all of whom are the children of Gerda and Pastor Vagn Duus. The two boys have not been properly identified, only the names Verner and Erling have been provided, but the girl in between them is Sibyl Duus. Her hand appears to be around the shoulder of her mother, Gerda, who wears horn-rimmed glasses, a blazer, and matching skirt. She is seated on the arm rest of a wooden chair, which is occupied by Pastor Vagn Duus. The words "Merry Christmas" have been printed on the top margin of the photograph. There is hand-written text on the back, but with the exception of the heading, which reads, "To Danish Ladies Aid member", the rest appears to be written in Danish or a similar Germanic language.
