Cottonwood County Danish Emigrants


Danish Emigrants
Cottonwood County, Minnesota



The following database was taken from the Copenhagen police records of people emigrating from Denmark to towns in Cottonwood County between 1882 and 1908. 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 Cottonwood County. Some may have listed their destination as such places as Chicago or New York and later came here. 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 a few Swedes in this list, who evidently left for the US from Copenhagen.
