I found three parishes called Nyk�bing in Denmark. The Nyk�bing in Maribo,
Denmark, is Nyk�bing F. Apparently Nyk�bing M, as marked on that photo, is
Nyk�bing Mora, as already stated by another poster. There also is a Nyk�bing

I have an ancestor from Nyk�bing Falster, Maribo, so I suspect Falster is
what the Nyk�bing F stands for. The index of the above book shows a Nyk�bing
Strandhuse, so that must be Nyk�bing S, but maybe not, since there are two
Nyk�bing S listings in the index. There is also another Nyk�bing, which is
only in the indexes but not in the list of parishes. That is Nyk�bing Bugt.
I guess that the Danish like to use the place name Nyk�bing. :-) I know next
to nothing about Denmark. Those of you who see me as a chatterbox on this
list wouldn't recognize me on the Denmark list. I am just a lurker trying to
learn a bit before I start researching there. :-)
