American Requires Danish Assistance, Please

I cannot make sense of the arkivalieronline.dk and other Danish index systems. Even when I have my browser translate to English, I am confused because I do not know exactly what information to choose or enter.

I am seeking information about family members born in Denmark and emigrated to America. I have only a little information. What I do have comes from census records and public records in America.

C. Ole Hansen was born about 1843 in Denmark. Carrie Hansen (nee Larsen; daughter of P. Larsen), his wife, was born about 1843 in Denmark. Their daughter, Ane "Annie" Carie (or Carrie) Hansen, was born 05 Jan 1872. Annie's obituary indicates that she was born in Nykobing, but I understand that there are several towns in Denmark by that name.

Annie emigrated from Denmark to America in about 1880. I have found no record of the family's entry into America. I have found no passenger list that names them. I also do not know her father's first name; he was listed always as "C. Ole Hansen". I do not believe that Annie had any siblings, but I am not certain of it.

Annie probably is my best lead. I am hoping that someone will be willing and able to assist me with Danish parish records and census records in order to identify Annie's father. I also would like to get beyond her father and mother to at least her grandparents on both sides, if possible.
