Many immigrants set sail for America to find a better life particularly in the second half of the nineteenth century when industrialization meant a farming/ tradeseman existence was impossible unless you had a larger farm.
Did F W Schubert take a Trans-Atlantic trip before heading to Denmark? In 1853, F W Schubert would have been around 23 years old and lo and behold there is a 23 year old listed here. He would have had to return to Europe and land in Denmark two years later for this to be him. He fathered a child – which subsequently died in infancy in Clasonsborg, in 1855 ( To be verified), and Pauline was born in 1858.
All these people came from Germany, and were destined for the United States.( no more specific origin nor destination mentioned) and his occupation was listed as a Weaver.
If I am to eliminate this, I must follow all F W Schubert in America to see if I can marry up his record or eliminate him. The dates he arrived in Denmark will tell me whether this is so.
