I'm not sure what I've found. This is my ancestor, from Sweden who went to Denmark in 1885 at 15 years of age.
I know that he left Liverpool on the ship Teutonic on March 27, 1895 and arrived at Ellis Island on April 3, 1895.
I know that he went to Britt, Iowa and that's where he married a girl from Maribo, Denmark.
Can anyone tell me what this record is of? I think the link before this said "Police records". Was he in trouble with the law?!
The link is below, but i will include a screen shot in case you don't want to click the link. It says DDD Danish Emigration Archivehttp://ddd.dda.dk/udvandrer/udvandr_soeg_uk.asp?navn=Hjort%2...
I am brand new to the Danish side of my research and know nothing. His bride was Karoline Marianne Pederson (Petersen) born Feb 4 1874, christened April 2, 1874 in TIRSTED,MARIBO,DENMARK to Jens Peter Rasmussen and Jensine Birthe Sorensen but I haven't learned WHERE or how to use the Danish Church Records yet. They don't seem to be on Ancestry.com
