Is there a way to check shipping information from Denmark?
My great grandfather, Geoge Albert Rasmussen 1849-1936 - Bornholm, Denmark, told sea stories of merchant ships and wrecks. He either immigrated or jumped ship in Manitowoc, WI between 1875 and 1877 approx. I know very little of his life in Denmark. Any help would be appreciated.

The attached Wisconsin Naturalization Index card fits your ancestor, and George born Jan 1849 is listed in Oconto County 1900 census with wife Louise and children.

Find A Grave shows George Albert Rasmussen born 31 Jan 1849 buried in Milwaukee, and the attached birth record from Rønne, Bornholm lists a Georg Alb--? Rasmussen born that date to Jens Rasmussen and wife Margrethe Elisabeth Møller.
(Not sure of middle name spelling, but Georg is European spelling of George)

But I don't find them in the transcribed 1850 census, or his confirmation.

Thanks so much for this information. I did have the naturalization record and am thrilled to see his birth. He told a grandson that he moved to Copenhagen but I don't know if the family moved or just himself to get work.

I din't even notice the missing S. That's how quickly the brain can just fill in the blanks......
