The following database was taken from the Copenhagen police records of people emigrating from Denmark to Council Grove between 1874 and 1893. The date is that of the emigrant's registration, not necessarily the day he/she sailed. This is by no means a list of all Danes who came to Morris County. Some may have listed their destination as such places as Chicago or New York and later came to Morris County. Danish characters in the surnames have been changed to corresponding letters in the English alphabet, so that the entries can be found through the search engine. There are actually more Swedes than Danes on this list, who evidently left for the US from Copenhagen.
