The Denmark Historical Society is currently compiling a Pioneer Index of Denmark residents, pre-1960. Depending on the availability of information, the index will show: the person’s name, birth and death dates; their profession; country of origin; parent’s names; when they came to Australia and on which ship; where they settled; and children of the marriage and descendants, if known.
If you are a descendant of a Denmark person pre-1960, the Society would welcome any additional information that we can add to our Pioneer Index.
Records of births, baptisms 1901 – 1934, deaths, marriages, obituaries A-Z.
