family roots #scandinavia

Can anyone tell me where the Jewish population centers were in
Denmark at the middle to late 19th century? I have been working
on my family history for almost 6 years now and here is what I
have found. My great grandfather immigrated >from Lolland Denmark
in 1894. His name was Jorge Gergen KOK. (He changed it at Ellis
Island). There were KOKs show up in Lolland in 1792. However, in
1792 there was a pogram in Lithuania and a KOOK family immigrated
from Lithuania to Denmark in 1792. I'm trying to see if there is
a relationship. Can anyone out there help me?
