I'm trying to find more information about my father's family. My grandfather, Fred (or Frederick) Duus Svendsen Hess was born April 2, 1889, in Vejle, Denmark, according to records I have found. The first visa record I have is Fred leaving Denmark in 1911 for South America. He then went to Canada, and then ended up in the U.S. in 1916. I have a couple of photos of his sister Ellen and her shop in Vejle, but not much info of his life or the family in Denmark past that. I think Ellen stayed in Denmark. Please let me know if you have any information!
