I need to start researching my ancestors who came from Denmark. Only problem is I don't know where to start. Could someone please give me a few suggestions of sites to use on Denmark research? I don't mind doing the work when I know where and what I am looking at or for.
My great grandmother Jorgina "Gena" Holm was born31 Jan 1884 in Denmark according to her church records in Wisconsin, USA. She arrived with parents Christian "Chris" Holm (born @ Nov 1849) and Karen (or Cary, Marie, Mary nee unknown) (born @ Aug 1851) and brother Godford (born @1876). The family immigrated about 1886 according to census records. Godford died without marrying at age 23.
My family has the trunk that the family used when they came over from Denmark. I would like to be able to learn more about them and their journey to american and be able to prove the family's information.
My grandmother use to have the family's Danish Bible but didn't remember seeing any names written inside. She donated the Bible to a historical society years ago who has since lost the Bible when I attempted to contact them. I am hoping to be able to find other sources of information on the Danish side for the family.
