Immigrant Wall of Honor Registration

Many of the more than 360,000 Danish immigrants who left their homeland for a new life in the United States are recognized on The Danish Immigrant Wall of Honor. Their stories contribute importantly to the growing repository of family histories at the Museum of Danish America and its Genealogy Center. The museum eloquently interprets these stories through its fascinating exhibits.

The Danish Immigrant Wall of Honor provides families and friends with a means of preserving the memory of those who immigrated to America from Denmark. Over 4,250 immigrants are recognized on this memory wall to date. Their stories and the stories of their families are now preserved for ever in the archives of the museum and the Genealogy Center.

An index of the immigrant names currently appearing on the Wall of Honor plaques is provided. The list is updated through OCTOBER 17, 2018. The immigrants' names are in alphabetical order.  Coming Soon: Year of Immigration added to the index.

You, too, can memorialize your name or a forebears by adding your name or their names to the Wall. To register names, please submit your contribution of $250 per name and this Wall of Honor Immigrant Information Form to:
