To see the link you have to be a member, which is free.

This James Kofod had a daughter Mary Ann Sarah in 1861 in Hawthorn Victoria. His wife was Eliza.
Is this the same James?

Here is Hans and Gjertrud Kofoed from the 1845 Census in Bornholm.
There is no child that could resemble James born in 1838.
I believe James could have been Jens.
