Danish Emmigration

The following database was taken from the Copenhagen police records of people emigrating from Denmark to Dodge City between 1887 and 1907.  The date is that of the emigrant's registration, not necessarily the day he/she sailed, although it was usually with five days of departure.  This is by no means a list of all Danes who came to Ford County.  Some may have listed their destination as such places as Chicago or New York and later came to Ford County.  Danish characters in the surnames have been changed to corresponding letters in the English alphabet, so that the entries can be found through the search engine.  There is one Swede on this list, who evidently left for the US from Copenhagen.
