I have the exact dates and information when my Danish ancestors emigrated from Denmark. I have hit a "brick wall" and need help to find clear, definite information: they traveled indirectly (=Indirekte route) on their journey to America. There is a huge "gap" of much needed information regarding ship passenger records, port of departure and port/date of arrival.
Let's start with the 1st ancestor.
Name: Petersen, Hans Christian. Occupation; Tyende (m/k land)
Age 21; Destination: Eau Claire, Wisc.
Contract no: 84500 Registration date: 4/3/1883
Last res. parish: Longelese (Langeland) Last res. county: Svendborg, Denmark
Last residense: Longelese,Svendb. Destination country:USA
Destination city: Eau Claire. Destination state: Wisconsin.
Name of ship: Indirekte.
ID code: 18284P1407.
Thank you to any and all who help with my "brick wall"!
