Hi, trying to find out where my great grandfather was born.
I don't have much info. I believe he was born about August 19, 1866 or 67, possibly in Hjorring. I believe he arrived in USA either in 1887 or 1890.
According to the Danish Emigration Archives, they have a Jacob Peter Olsen, age 21, leaving for New York on April 9, 1887. Emigrating from Hjorring Denmark on the ship Geiser. Archive no. D8587o0801.
I have not found any other variation of name spellings in the archives.
Would like to confirm birth place and date and also parents names if at all possible.
Thanks, Mike O
