Kristensdatter, Kristence

Written by:  Rita Pedersen

Kristence Kristensdatter passed on, together with her four daughters, folklore, including songs, to Evald Tang Kristensen, who visited her when she lived with her daughter Maren Olesdatter in Hygum. Her daughter had to jog her ninety-three-year-old mother's failing memory when relating and singing the family's tradition to Evald Tang Kristensen, who in one day collected fourteen songs and five tales.
