Danish Emigrants to Cherokee County

The following database was taken from the Copenhagen police records of people emigrating from Denmark to towns in Cherokee County. The date is that of the emigrant's registration, not necessarily the day he/she sailed, although departure usually occurred with a couple weeks from the registration date. There are both Danish and Swedish citizens in this database, as evidently many Swedes used Copenhagan as their point of departure to the New World. This is by no means a list of all those who left Copenhagen to come to Cherokee County. Some may have listed their destination as such places as Chicago or New York and later came to Cherokee County.
