I as hunting for the Danish roots of my GGF John Juhl. He emigrated from Denmark in 1885, was in Berrien Co., Mich to file naturalization in 1890 and voted in Chicago in 1992. I think he matches a danish copenhagen exit record for a Johs. Juhl .
Name: Juhl, Johs.
Registration date: 3/14/1885
Last res. county: - Slesvig
Destination city: New York City
Name of ship: Thingvalla
Contract no.: 36600
I have the feeling he was from Haderslev but have no data to back it up although Tonder name has come up in family talks. There are Johnannes Juhl's who have emigrated to the US but I can trace most to families in Iowa, California, and Colorado. but not Michigan / Illinois. I have floated this query in a number of board locations at different times (going back 3 years ago) and have had people point in diferent directions but no solid info.
