Danish Emigration to Lewis

[danish flag] Danish Emigration Records
Danes To Lewis
[american flag]

The following transcription was taken from the Copenhagen police records of people emigrating from Denmark to the vicinity of Lewis, Cass County. The date is that of the emigrant's registration, not necessarily the day he/she sailed. This is by no means a list of all Danes who came to Cass County. Family members are not necessarily listed together; scroll through to match up families with dates of registration. There may be a few Swedes and Norwegians who are in this list, who evidently left for the US from Copenhagen.

*Note: Name of ship is available only for direct passage from Copenhagen.
