Looking for info on family - Riis from Denmark
If anyone has any info on the Riis/Reis family who in the later 1800's came from Denmark to New York and where to start research on them (& family in Denmark) please reply.
I have found some info on the ship name and date of arrival (Sept 1893 if i recall correctly) but cannot locate any info on the ellis island immigration site to verify that.
No clue where in Denmark they originated from. Story as i know it was 2 brothers came here from Denmark and paperwork had names spelt differently. My ancestor line kept Riis and brother took Reis. Which was the original? You're guess is as good as mine. I was told it was Riis, but maybe it was Reis. Brothers' names were Simon and Rasmus.
