The Christmas

tree at Austin

Street is happily

decorated with

many new hearts

and chains and

becomes a

symbol of our

lives: strong


underpinning life

in the new world

and linking us to

our past.

Whether you’ve lived in Australia

for one or fifty years, our Danish

traditions remain with us, often with

a unique Australian twist. Baking

Christmas cookies and making

decorations for our Christmas tree

with KUPALEJA engaging all with

Danish songs was a wonderful

reminder of our Danish heritage.

I wish you all

Glædelig Jul og Godt Nytår.

Moose Shoot

By Kim Tvede

What a great day out! Amanda, Mitchell, Johannes and Kim represented the Danes in this annual

event organized by the Swedes Downunder. It should be noted that Kim, as coordinator of

Danskerne, had twelve expressions of interest for the team, but family, travel and other events made

the rest unable to attend on the particular day. We hope they had as good a day as we did with

everyone mustering for the shoot at the SSAA range around 8am.

The event had been enlarged this year to include not only rifle shooting (.223 Weatherby Vanguards

for those who are interested), but also pistol shooting (Ruger 10/22), and shotgunning (Miroku O/U

12 gauge). The SSAA coaches were excellent and transmitted the joy of their sport to the exuberant

Skandinavere og Aussies (who were great shots and clever enough to have Scandinavian partners).

The shotguns were used with reduced powder loads so the recoil was not a shock for new shooters,

and people still hit those bright orange little clay disks. It is fair to say the Olympic team is safe for a

while yet, but we had some fast learners! The pistol shooting showed the Danish team had a ‘dark

horse’. Johannes Pedersen performed like he had done it before, and he had. It was only after he

received the overall winner medal, t-shirt, and kiss, that he admitted having won a silver medal in

Hærens shooting competition during his military service, and pistol training for his service with the

UN in Bosnia, and had been with a shooting club in Denmark, but hadn’t shot for six years so did not

think it worth mentioning beforehand! The rifle shooting showed Aussie Antony, last year’s winner,

was a champion by shooting 100/100. An unbeatable score! Discussion was that next year the

targets needed to be smaller, or moved further out, as a number of shooters were within 2 points of

this result. Shooting standing off-hand next year was not considered a fair option for those younger

and lighter shooters who may otherwise be disadvantaged in holding the firearm steady. In all the

events, the planning showed consideration for safety as well as skill levels.

The Swedish club were most generous in offering all shooters their traditional hunting meal of thick

and nutritious pea and ham soup, with beer and a traditional punsch, which tasted like a sweet,

fortified dessert wine, fortunately not as alcoholic (at 24%) as snaps. We enjoyed the meal in nearby

Meadowlands Park, which we had to ourselves with magpies and a tawny frogmouth looking on.

Trust the Svenska to find a timber shelter in amongst pine trees (mountain oaks, actually, but with

needles and suitably lichened trunks).

Looking forward to next year’s Moose Challenge!

Dear members and friends of Heimdal

We have had a great start to our new season and on behalf of the committee, I would like to thank all

members and friends sincerely for supporting our events.

The only way we can keep our club alive and preserve a great venue, where we can celebrate our

Danish heritage and traditions is by members attending and supporting the functions.

The committee strives to deliver quality functions and also develop new concepts, and it was

absolutely great to see the support for our recent ‘julestue’ held Saturday 15 November, where many

kids, parents, grandparents and friends took part in all the good traditional Christmas activities.

A big thank you to Gudrun Tvede, MDCC ( Mistress-of-Danish-Christmas-Cookies) for making the

dough and guiding all the young helpers in the art of shaping and baking cookies – plus of course the

sampling of the products.

Also a big thank you to KUPALEJA who had everybody on the floor singing and dancing, and it was

good training for our upcoming Christmas Eve in the afternoon of 13 December where there will be

singing and dancing around the Christmas Tree (which was also decorated by the kids 15 November)

and Christmas presents for all the kids.

The committee has commenced preparations for next year and we hope to see continued strong

support for our future events.

We have another Scandinavian Café Night scheduled for 28 February at the Finnish

Club/Thornlands, and our recent ‘shoot-out’ with the Swedes was also a great success disclosing

some hidden talents.

If anybody would like to be part of an event or has an idea to a new event, please contact one of the

committee members – the events we pursue are what we think will attract the most interest and

support and we are always open to new ideas from all members.

If you are a keen bushwalker, you can start your own bushwalking group, and we can assist by

advertising events in our newsletter.

Likewise others may be more interested in indoor activities like the famous Danish dice game, Balut,

or the somewhat more demanding indoor soccer

I would also like to extend a very warm welcome to all our new members and wish all a very Merry

Christmas and a Fabulous New Year.

Julestuen 2008

By Kim Tvede

The event opened Saturday 15 November at 9am with Gudrun Tvede setting up the kitchen,

assisted by Merete Kern and Lis Larsen. Allan Przybylak had of course been there well before

that with his usual attention to cleaning and general readiness for the event. The first four

young people arrived shortly afterwards. Thus started the inaugural 2008 Julestue.

The Power family young folk (Remy, Crystal & Atlanta) arrived to start the traditional

decorations with star and heart making. Eyes were opened at some of the more complex designs

possible in weaving heart baskets. Even adults who thought they knew all about fancy heart

designs were challenged. The prize for diligence in this area should go to Soren Hoimark’s

mother-in-law, who quietly went about a whole series of very attractive designs.

Various families arrived throughout the morning with a pleasant atmosphere developing as

people selected their preferred activity or rotated around. Lone Lambourne was her usual

organised self, helping everything run smoothly and covering details. The littlies who found even

scissors difficult, still managed to make paper chains, and the biscuit production was wellattended

by many. Such concentration on tasks showed real engagement. Many biscuits and

klejner were sampled and consumed, as well as taken home, but there were some left over for

the next Café for those who missed out.

With a bare tree in the middle of the floor, and participants gradually decorating it, the

atmosphere grew as more people arrived. In the end around twenty-seven adults and similar

numbers of young folk rounded out the event. This meant that Kupaleja (Kurt & Pat Christensen,

Lenard Lovdin and Jan Palmer) had a great number of people to perform songs with, setting the

scene with a selection of folk tunes before moving into the Xmas theme. By the time Lis Larsen

lead the song games with the group, people were really into the swing of it, and ready for a hot

dog. People were so into the mood we were strongly tempted to prepare some æbleskiver, but

we resisted, since something should be left for those who couldn’t attend.

The tree grew in weight and colour, with various folk starting to leave between 1 and 3pm as

their own arrangements took over. Some folk took advantage of the supplies of glossy paper and

star strips to take supplies home. Many copies of the recipes (på dansk), star and heart-making

instructions (in English, courtesy of Remy Power) went with families to help spread the skills in

traditional Danish Xmas preparations.

Decorations were added to the tree on leaving. Just to show that an excellent tradition cannot

be put down, one young primary schooler made a wonderful suggestion: “Wouldn’t it be good to

put sweets into the woven heart baskets on the tree so we can eat them at Christmas.” Now

why hadn’t someone thought of that before!

The club committee had decided to subsidise the event and the final cost is likely to be

somewhere in the vicinity of $200. Thank you to all the people who helped make the event so

enjoyable, both as participants and volunteers. It was a lovely day and a wonderful way to

launch the Xmas spirit for 2008.

Statsborgerskab til børn født i udlandet

Fra websiten dk-mor-udlandet.com har vi fundet en god oversigt over reglerne for dansk


Der er lidt forskellige regler alt efter om man er dansk far eller dansk mor til et barn

født i udlandet:

Reglerne her er gældende for børn født af en dansk mor. Reglerne er også gældende for

danske fædre i udlandet, som er gift med en udenlandsk partner. Der er lidt anderledes

regler for en dansk far i udlandet, som IKKE er gift med sin udenlandske partner – så

lever du i papirløst forhold gælder disse regler altså ikke.

Lad os starte med at slå fast, at et barn født i udlandet af en dansk mor er dansk

statsborger fra fødslen – uanset hvor barnet er født og uanset hvilken nationalitet

faderen måtte have. Har faderen et (eller flere) udenlandske statsborgerskaber er der

stor sandsynlighed for, at barnet også har disse nationaliteter fra fødslen. Et barn kan

dermed sagtens have to eller flere statsborgerskaber fra fødslen.

Lande uddeler statsborgerskaber efter to metoder – den ene kaldes ”blod” og den anden

”jord”. ”Blod” betyder, at landene giver statsborgerskab, hvis ens forældre er

statsborgere i landet (uanset hvor i verden barnet bliver født) og ”jord” betyder, at man

får statsborgerskab i det pågældende land, hvis man blive født indenfor dette lands


Nogle lande giver statsborgerskab efter begge principper – f.eks. USA. Det betyder at

børn født udenfor USA af amerikanske statsborgere får amerikansk statsborgerskab,

men ligeledes betyder det også, at et barn født i USA af f.eks. en dansk mor og en

fransk far får tre statsborgerskaber – dansk efter moderen, fransk efter faderen og

amerikansk fordi USA giver statsborgerskab efter ”jord” princippet – altså ved fødsel i


Danmark giver kun statsborgerskab efter ”blod” princippet. Er man født af en dansk

mor, bliver man således statsborger i Danmark, uanset hvor i verden man bliver født.

Mange undrer sig over, at barnet ikke skal registreres som dansker nogen steder efter

en fødsel i udlandet. Det er korrekt nok – det faktum at barnet er født af en dansk mor

gør, at barnet er dansk statsborger. Hvis man gerne vil have et ”bevis” på

statsborgerskabet, er den eneste mulighed at bestille et dansk pas (som kun udleveres

til danske statsborgere) – det er i hvert fald et bevis på statsborgerskabet.

Et cpr.nummer kan man heller ikke få til barnet, så længe man er bosiddende i

udlandet. Dette er ofte til stor frustration for danske forældre i udlandet, men altså

ganske korrekt. Cpr.nr. kan man først få ved tilflytning til Danmark og hvis ikke ens

barn kommer til at bo i Danmark på noget tidspunkt – ja, så får barnet aldrig et dansk

cpr.nr. Det har INGEN betydning for statsborgerskabet.

Vigtigst er det at et dansk cpr.nr. ikke har nogen som helst funktion for et dansk barn

født i udlandet og ikke behøves til noget som helst.

Opsummering: Et barn født i udlandet af en dansk mor eller en dansk far gift

med en udenlandsk partner er dansk fra fødslen, skal ikke registreres nogen

steder og får ikke et cpr.nr.

Dobbelt statsborgerskab

Vi har alle hørt gang på gang, at Danmark ikke accepterer dobbelt statsborgerskab. Det


for børn født af en dansk mor og en udenlandsk far.

I indfødsretlovgivningen står der, at hvis man ANSØGER om et andet statsborgerskab

end dansk – så kan man ikke beholde det danske statsborgerskab. Det vigtige ord er

ANSØGER. Et barn født af en dansk mor og en udenlandsk far har IKKE ansøgt om flere

statsborgerskaber, men derimod FÅET dem i fødselsgave. Derfor kan et barn født med

flere statsborgerskaber sagtens have dobbelt (eller flere statsborgerskaber).

Opsummering: Et barn som har fået to eller flere statsborgerskaber i

fødselsgave fra forældrene kan uden problemer have dobbelt statsborgerskab i

henhold til danske regler. (Der kan være enkelte andre lande som ikke

accepterer dobbelt statsborgerskab fra fødslen)

Ansøgning om bevarelse af dansk statsborgerskab

Fejlagtigt mener mange, at man skal opgive det danske statsborgerskab eller vælge

statsborgerskab, når barnet bliver 21 år. DETTE ER FORKERT – man skal ikke vælge

mellem ens statsborgerskaber eller opgive sit danske og man kan sagtens beholde flere

statsborgerskabet hele livet.

Her er det indfødsretlovens paragraf 8 vi skal have fat i for at finde ud af hvad det er

man rent faktisk skal når ens barn bliver 21 år gammel.

" § 8. Den, der er født i udlandet og aldrig har boet her i riget og ej

heller har opholdt sig her under forhold, der tyder på samhørighed med

Danmark, taber sin danske indfødsret ved det fyldte 22. år, medmindre den

pågældende derved bliver statsløs. Justitsministeren, eller den, han

bemyndiger dertil, kan dog efter ansøgning indgivet inden dette tidspunkt

tillade, at indfødsretten bevares."

Opsummering: Et barn som er født i udlandet og som har boet i Danmark i

mindst 12 mdr. i løbet af barndommen (0-21 år) er automatisk og uden at gøre

noget som helst dansk statsborger for resten af livet. Ved 12 mdrs. bopæl i

Danmark regnes man for at have opnået tilknytning til landet og dermed

optjent rettigheden til at bevare det danske statsborgerskab for tid og evighed.

Ansøgning om bevarelse af dansk statsborgerskab.

Har barnet ALDRIG været bosiddende i Danmark fra fødslen til den 21. fødselsdag skal

der indgives en ansøgning om bevarelse af dansk statsborgerskab.

ALLERVIGTIGST er at huske at sende ansøgningen på det rigtige tidspunkt.

Ansøgningen kan tidligst indgives den dag barnet fylder 21 år og SKAL være indsendt

senest dagen før barnet fylder 22 år. Indsender man ikke ansøgning eller kommer man

bare éen dag for sent – så har barnet mistet sit danske statsborgerskab og der findes

INGEN muligheder for at få dette igen uden at miste eventuelle andre statsborgerskaber.

Derfor HUSK at indsende ansøgningen inden for perioden fra barnets 21 års fødselsdag

og senest dagen før barnet fylder 22 år.

Ansøgningen er et stykke papir der udleveres hos ambassader eller som kan fås ved

henvendelse til indfødsretskontoret i Danmark.

Det vigtigste formål med ansøgningen er at bevise at barnet – på trods af at have boet i

udlandet hele livet – har bevaret tilknytning til Danmark.

Når indfødsretskontoret kigger på denne ansøgning tager de overhovedet IKKE i

betragtning hvorvidt barnet har andre statsborgerskaber og der stilles ingen krav om at

disse statsborgerskaber skal opgives. Går ansøgningen igennem er barnet dansk

statsborger for resten af livet og bevarer også eventuelle andre statsborgerskaber (Med

mindre ”det/de andre lande” har lovgivningsmæssige krav der gør at DE ikke accepterer

at barnet har flere statsborgerskaber)

De allerfleste ansøgninger om bevarelse af statsborgerskabet går glat igennem – om

end det kan tage noget tid. Det er vigtigt at udfylde ansøgningen med så mange

oplysninger som overhovedet muligt.

I ansøgningen skal der redegøres for hvorfor barnet vil vedblive at være dansk

statsborger. Der skal redegøres for alle de tilknytningsforhold, barnet har til Danmark

(familie, venner, bekendte) og hvilken kontakt barnet har haft til disse i løbet af

opvæksten. Der skal redegøres for antallet af besøg i Danmark og kontakten til venner

og familie. Venner og familie i Danmark kan risikere at få besøg af politiet i Danmark for

at bekræfte oplysningerne. Det er en god ide at forberede familien/vennerne på dette,

således de ikke får et chok over at få besøg af politiet. Det er en helt normal procedure.

Det er derfor en god ide at føre ”dagbog” over rejser til Danmark og om hvem man har

besøgt. Ligeledes er det en god ide i dagbogen at føre en liste over familie og venners

besøg på bopælsstedet i udlandet (det er også tilknytning til Danmark). Det mest

suveræne er at sørge for at barnet altid rejser på eget pas og bede paskontrollen i

Danmark stemple passet hver gang barnet besøger Danmark.

Det er også en god ide at tage billeder (som bevis på besøgene i Danmark) – der er

også eksempler på at politiet har bedt familie og venner om de har nogen ”beviser” på

barnets tilknytning og her kan netop foto fra sommerferier, breve og anden kontakt

være ”beviser”.

Der er i lovgivningen ingen krav om at Danmark skal være besøgt et bestemt antal

gange i løbet af opvæksten. Det vurderes individuelt fra sag til sag. Et dansk barn som

har været bosiddende i Hamburg i Tyskland forventes at have besøgt Danmark oftere

end et dansk barn bosiddende på New Zealand.

Andre ting som kan bevise tilknytning til Danmark er f.eks. evnen til at tale dansk. Det

er IKKE et krav at barnet skal kunne tale dansk, men det vil blive vurderet hvorvidt

barnet kan kommunikere med familie og venner i Danmark. Det er mere sandsynligt at

et dansk barn opvokset i USA med engelsk som modersmål kan kommunikere med

bedsteforældre i Danmark på engelsk end et dansk barn der udelukkende taler kinesisk

kan kommunikere med bedsteforældrene. I sidstnævnte tilfælde vil bedsteforældrene

blive afkrævet bevis på at disse er i stand til at kommunikere med barnet på kinesisk,

hvor det i det første tilfælde anses for sandsynligt at kommunikationen er foregået på

engelsk. Dansk er altså ikke et krav – og har man ikke lært dansk trækker det altså ikke

nødvendigvis fra i den samlede vurdering, men det er klart at evnen til at tale dansk er

et plus når tilknytningen skal vurderes.

Andre ting som kan øge tilknytning til Danmark er hvis barnet har foretaget studier i

udlandet i relation til Danmark. F.eks. et valgfag i nordisk litteratur i gymnasiet – alt

tæller og bør opgives i ansøgningen.

Der er ikke de store ben i ansøgningen, men den skal som sagt udfyldes så

fyldestgørende som muligt. Forfatteren til denne artikel har ikke kendskab til

ansøgninger om bevarelse af statsborgerskab efter det fyldte 22. år hvor der er blevet

givet afslag.

Opsummering: Hvis barnet aldrig har boet i Danmark inden barnet fylder 21. år

så HUSK at indgive ansøgning i perioden fra 21. års fødselsdagen til senest

dagen før barnet fylder 22. år. Ansøgningen skal afleveres hos

indfødsretskontoret i Danmark eller ved en dansk repræsentation i udlandet.

Gør det nemt at udfylde ansøgningen når den tid kommer ved at føre dagbog

over besøg i Danmark og besøg fra Danmark i udlandet og andre ting som kan

bevise tilknytning til Danmark. Lad være med at stresse over at der skal

indgives ansøgning. De allerallerfleste får positivt svar. Husk at DER IKKE ER
