Renfroe was performing her genealogical work and discovered that she had ancestors from the village of Skals, Viborg, Denmark, for over six generations. She then began to extract and transcribe all of the early church records which the priests wrote during that period of time.

Renfroe said,

I hope this work serves to help others trace their genealogy. I look forward to sharing from those who find ancestors here and who might be some very distant “cousins” of mine.
