Born in Nexo Jan 3rd 1871 to Anders Hansen & Boline Christine Mikkelsen (both died there). Married in San Jose, CA in 1902. Cannot find when or how he migrated from Nexo to U.S. He was apparently very taken with the ships in the port. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi

He left Copenhagen 6 or 7 may 1890 on Thingvalla.

Arrived New York 20 may 1890.

Collided with an iceberg the 19th in a foggy morning,
20 feet high and 100 feet long. No personal injury and only
minor damage to the ship.

Oh....my goodness..THANK You so VERY much!! And,so quickly! I assume the info came from the url you included? I had thought that he may have shipped as a crew member and that was why I couldn't find him..
Many,many thanks, Sandra

Hello again Flemming..could you please tell me where you found the info re Janus Hansens' presence on the Thingvalla in May 1890? Do you know if he was a passenger or crew?
The NY passenger list for that voyage doesn't show him (and it also lists the ship arriving on the 21st or 26th of May.

If you are using Ancestry, they have misread the careless handwriting as "James Elor" Hansen, and Janus Chr. Hansen 19 is passenger 91, the last one on second page.

And the ink is smeared on arrival date so hard to tell if 20th or 26th.
