Please help me, if you are familiar with finding Danish immigrants to USA. Albert was born to Jens Olsen and Karen Hansen 8/2/1889. It seems they were about 27 to 28 at the time of his birth and at the 1890 census. I figure their birth years at 1862 and their marriage about 1885 as they had 3 children as of 1890. These names were found by another member in the following parishes: LilleSkesved, Ramso Herred, Roskilde Amt, Denmark. If you could instruct me as to how to find the census in Denmark for these parishes, I would be most grateful. Also, should these names be familiar to your tree: Jens Olsen age 28 Karen Olsen 28 Ane Petrea Olsen 4 Emalie Elizabet 3 Albert Torval under 1 yr had a quick peak at the parish register for the next couple years and found: Hans Peter Voldemar Olsen b 11 Jul 1892 Axel Johann Olsen 25 Apr 1894 I would be most grateful for any information you share. Thank you!

Dear Flemming,

Thank you so very much for this information. I was unable to see the Danish statistics in the archives and could not find anything else. You have answered my prayer and I am grateful for your search, effort and information. Are we related?

Sincere regards,
Lynn and Wildm4n

Albert Olsen is in my family (not near) I know a little about his 7 sieblings. His mother died 27.7.1915 in Copenhagen. I understand that Albert was living in USA, that`s why I couldn`t find anything about him. Tell my where he lived and something about his family there. Alberts sister Valborg Hansine was born 14.6.1896 in Køge, Roskilde amt and the same to Valdemar Peter . He was born 9.4.1899. Niels Bindgaard was born 19.8.1900 in Copenhagen. Hans Peter Valdemar died 1.1.1896 in Køge.

Hi Birgit, did you ever hear from the Original Poster? Apparently Albert Thorval Olsen was in St Louis, Missouri, USA in 1918:

I am the great grand daughter of Albert Olsen. The links the other messenger put were correct about him. My grandma was his daughter Lucille. From the few details we have heard, Albert apparently came to America around 1903 as a stowaway on a ship at the age of 14. He lived his life in St. Louis Missouri. He did not like to talk about his family and so I didn't even know he had more than one brother and sister until these message boards. He never saw any of his family again except for his brother who went by John who also came to America later. I don't know much about him either except he apparently lived in New York and then moved to Florida. I am assuming he might have originally been called Axel Johann. Albert's wife and son both died in 1939 which is why they are not on the 1940 census the other user posted. His son was hit and killed by a car and his wife basically died from a broken heart not even 5 months later. Thank you for this other information you have given about his mother, anything else you know about his siblings or parents would be wonderful to hear. I am now confused though on the date you said Valdemar Peter was born as another user posted he was born on july 11, 1892 and spelled his name Volderma.

Okay, thank you so much! If you ever get a chance to do more research if you could try to find anything about Axel Johann Olsen who came to America who probably changed his name to John. Birthdate 4/25/1894. He lived in New York where he became a millionaire owning liquor stores and then moved to Florida apparently to open a hotel. One family member thinks he had a wife named Helen and two daughters named Yolanda and Barbara and then a second wife named Clara ( he is passed now so I can't ask him where he got this information so not sure if it is accurate). Thanks again for all that you have already found for us.
