What does 'DK' mean under 'where born'


New member
Hi, I keep coming across the letters 'DK' in-between apostrophes under some people's places of birth in the 1871 census. For one man it just says DK, for another it says 'Scotland 'DK'' and for a few more 'London 'DK''.

Does anyone have any idea what this means please?
Welcome to the forum It's most likely don't know. usually nk is used but it's probably a variation of the same thing
