You'll need to say more - few people today will recognize relatives of that era.

I found a Marinus Nielsen age 22 immigrating in 1916.
This makes him born about 1894.
He's a machinist.
Father is Adolph Christensen of Vizzgarden???
Place of birth Knubholmen????
Very hard to read the place names. Much more information on him on the manifest, but it is scribbled such that it is very hard to read.


1940
Seneca, Kossuth, Iowa
Marinus Nielsen 46 born about 1894 in Denmark, farmer
Alma Nielsen 29 born about 1911 in North Dakota
May Nielsen 11 born about 1929 in Iowa
Merina Nielsen 8 born about 1932 in Iowa

Is this your Marinus?

Reading the manifest in speaking the step father Adolph Christensen's birthplace should be Vejgaard(en). Lots of places in Denmark with that name so no great help.

Marinus Nielsen's place of birth is listed as Kutholmen, but that could be "Katholm". A few places with that name:
Katholm, Egen, Als Nørre, Sønderborg
Katholm, Hellevad, Dronninglund, Hjørring
Katholm Mark, Hellevad, Dronninglund, Hjørring
Katholm Odde, Hvidbjerg, Refs, Thisted
Katholm, Ubby, Ars, Holbæk
Katholm, Ålsø, Djurs Sønder, Randers
Katholm Skov, Ålsø, Djurs Sønder, Randers

What about this WWI registration.

http://search.ancestry.com/iexec?htx=View&r=an&dbid=...

Marinus Nielsen, born Feb 5th 1894, Skovsgaard St(ation),
June 1917 living in Fenton, Kossuth, Iowa.

Census 1940 in your tree, he is living in Seneca, Kossuth, Iowa.

Skovsgaard St(ation) is a part of Oester Svenstrup parish,Oester Han, Hjoerring in Denmark.

I have searched for his birth and conformation there, but without luck.

But anyway it could be an indication that he is from that part of Denmark.

Kind regards
Kaj

Skovsgaard St(ation) is is Øster Svenstrup, Øster Han, Hjørring, Denmark.

Bravo!

I'm not finding him in the emigration database at http://www.emiarch.dk/search.php3?l=da

Marinus's naturalization papers, marriage record, death certificate should yield his parents and birth place. dnielson4861, do you have these documents?

No - that database covers up to 1908.

A last guess:

There is a place Skovsgaard in Sonder Tranders parish
(St for Sonder Tranders ?)

Else I'm off until the poster shows that he/she still cares:-)
