Viggo Pedersen, Vindelev & Gadbjerg, Torrild, Vejle

Surnames: Pedersen
This is my first attempt at finding someone "over there," I hope I got all of the place names correct.

I am searching for my ancestor, Viggo Pedersen. He was born May 10, 1894. He came to the United States in April of 1922. On the ship manifest it gives his birthplace as Vindoloa (I am guessing this means Vindelev)and his last residence as Gadbjerg. He gives his nearest relative as father, Niels C. Pederson, Gadbjerg St., Gadbjerg. I was given a list of his family, but did not record from whom, nor do I know how reliable it is. The list says his fathers name is Christian and his mother is Karen Marie(Unknown) and siblings Alma, Laura, Marie, Martin, Peter, Klaus, Karen and Ewald. Family history says that Peter came to the US after Viggo and that he died not too long after and that Viggo had to provide a suit of clothes for his burial and pay for his burial and that he wasn't too happy about that. It is said that no other siblings came to America.

Any help or any tips for researching will be greatly appreciated.
