Jessens from Esbjerg, DK, in the USA

About Our Family Research


This site attempts to locate and register descendants of Laurids Frederiksen Jessen of Esbjerg, Denmark, whose eight out of ten children emigrated to the USA in the early years of the 20th century. Most of them remained on the east coast, notably in Massachusetts, New Jersey and North Carolina, and some later - through marriage - ended in Georgia.

The family names involved are (of course!) Jessen, Moretz, Metz, Turowsky, Johnson and Schlums, and in Denmark the family names in 2005 are Gransoe, Frandsen and Svendsen.

I've only been at it for a couple of months, but I find it hugely interesting, particularly since I remember meeting a number of my American relatives during visits to Denmark in the 1960s when I was between 10 and 15 years old.
