The 1930 census records indicate that Fred was naturalized.
The naturalization application will probably provide the birth info
you are seeking. Since they spent 1900 through 1930 in Racine
County, Wisconsin, a volunteer may be able to find the application
for citizenship at the Wisconsin State Archive or perhaps the court
located in Racine. In my state of Maryland, the marriage application
does not indicate the place of birth, only the place of residence.
Some ship manifests may also provide clues as to birth location.
A death certificate may also provide a clue.
Good Luck in your search...Bob Rasmussen

The family was living at 808 Monroe Street and Fred was retired. Esther
working as a Billing Clerk for a Railroad Office. Fred owns the home.
There are several RAOGK volunteers in the Racine, Wisconsin area who do
public records lookups for death, marriages, etc. You might want to
checking one out. See www.raogk.com.

I have later found that the wife, whose maiden name was Marie Rasmine
Nielsen, is listed (as Marie Nielsen) in the book "Passport to
Paradise: The Copenhagen Mormon Passenger Lists" by Shauna Anderson
et. al., but I have no access to this book here in Denmark. Maries
record should be listed on page 682.
My sister figured out that Marie and Fred (Frederik) immigrated
together and got married in Racine on Dec 23., 1889. They probably
left Denmark end of November begining of December 1889. We have
records showing that both of them presented their tickets to the
police in Copenhagen on Nov. 6., 1889.
Marie is a sister to our great grandmothers mother in law, but we have
not been able to find anything, except the immigration record, about
Fred here in Denmark. Probably because the 1880 census is not yet
I have ordered their marriage certificate from Racine hoping it will
have information about Fred's birth place and date.
Now I got a transcript of the marriage certificate and indeed it did
provide place of birth for both broom and bride.
Turns out that Frederik was born in Daugbjerg near Viborg in Jutland.
Still we cannot track him further but at least we have found more
information about his family. Frederik seems to be from a very poor
family. His mother was left alone with several kids when his father
dies only 38 years old, when Frederik is around 14. Frederik is most
likely sent to a farm to work, but we have not been able to find
records showing where he went. Records about his confirmation in
church are also missing. Maybe because around the time for his
confirmation his father dies.
His mother dies a few years later 40 years old probably of consumption
We also found Frederik's younger brother living as a pauper at the age
images of all danish church books up to 1892 and most census
1880 census images are complete
