I added a little info about the Bjelke-Petersen patriarch, from the marie Bjelke Petersen page. The repitition seemed worthwhile, if anything this is the page the info belongs on. (Why does the reference I added not show?) I deleted reference to the non existent "white australian" etc categories. Jeremytrewindixon 01:55, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

Why "Bjelke"?[edit]

The article says that Georg Petersen became Georg Bjelke-Petersen but doesn't say where he got the "Bjelke" from. Was it his middle name? The place his family came from? Does anybody know? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:10, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
