Organized LDS Emigration Groups Organized emigration from Scandinavian began in 1852 and continued up until about 1890. Leaders were called to assist the emigrants in the journey. Missionaries who had completed their missions would travel home to Utah with the emigrants. One or more of the missionaries were called to be the leader of the group. Most of the organized groups began in Copenhagen. The groups leaving from Copenhagen would be Danish and Swedish Saints. Often Norwegian Saints sailed out of Oslo and went directly to Liverpool where they would join with other Scandinavian Saints. The Scandinavians usually joined saints from other places in Europe and Great Britain in Liverpool.

Organized LDS Emigration Groups Organized emigration from Scandinavian began in 1852 and continued up until about 1890. Leaders were called to assist the emigrants in the journey. Missionaries who had completed their missions would travel home to Utah with the emigrants. One or more of the missionaries were called to be the leader/s of the group. Most of the organized groups began in Copenhagen. The groups leaving from Copenhagen would be Danish and Swedish Saints. For the first few years of&nbsp;emigration, Norwegian&nbsp;Saints would also&nbsp;come to&nbsp;Copenhagen.&nbsp; Later Norwegian Saints sailed out of Oslo and went directly to England where they would join with other Scandinavian Saints. The Scandinavians usually joined saints from other places in Europe and Great Britain in Liverpool. Detailed information about each company and names of missionaries, may be found in Andrew Jenson’s book, “History of the Scandinavian Mission”. Pages listed in the table below are for Andrew Jenson’s book. The number of Saints leaving shown in the table below includes children.&nbsp; Organized emigration was closed because of the "Utah War" (Johnston's Army) early in 1858 and announced at the end of 1858 that it would resume.&nbsp; By 1890 the day of the large companies was past.&nbsp; After this point the Saints left their native lands in small numbers.&nbsp; They still usually would travel in the care of returning missionaries.

Organized LDS Emigration Groups Organized emigration from Scandinavian began in 1852 and continued up until about 1890. Leaders were called to assist the emigrants in the journey. Missionaries who had completed their missions would travel home to Utah with the emigrants. One or more of the missionaries were called to be the leader/s of the group. Most of the organized groups began in Copenhagen. The groups leaving from Copenhagen would be Danish and Swedish Saints. For the first few years of emigration, Norwegian Saints would also come to Copenhagen.  Later Norwegian Saints sailed out of Oslo and went directly to England where they would join with other Scandinavian Saints. The Scandinavians usually joined saints from other places in Europe and Great Britain in Liverpool. Detailed information about each company and names of missionaries, may be found in Andrew Jenson’s book, “History of the Scandinavian Mission”. Pages listed in the table below are for Andrew Jenson’s book. The number of Saints leaving shown in the table below includes children.  Organized emigration was closed because of the "Utah War" (Johnston's Army) early in 1858 and announced at the end of 1858 that it would resume.  By 1890 the day of the large companies was past.  After this point the Saints left their native lands in small numbers.  They still usually would travel in the care of returning missionaries.
