Danish ship information to go online

Records from more than 1.8 million ships that sailed through the Danish sound will go online in May 2012. The records date from the mid 15th century to 1857.

The data comes from books recording a toll levied by the Danish crown on all ships that sailed the waterway between North and Baltic Seas.
