Still hoping to find family. He took ship Standard Oil tanker "Communipaw" - signed on to crew - Oct 1920 when he was 19 and landed in Brooklyn, NY 15 Nov 1920 at age 19 via Norfolk,VA. He naturalized 10 Mar 1941 after marrying 25 Feb 1939 in Brooklyn using an assumed name. Perhaps son of Jens Peter Jensen and Sine (found Mary? - mother's address in 1921 in Aarhus listed on military or other record). Haven't been able to connect with family via Danish census - records likely incomplete.

Hi Judy,

Since Denmark had a census in 1921, if you have the exact address for Aage's mother in Aarhus, perhaps I can find her in that census.

Sincerely,

Thanks Paul. I've got his name for the ship on Ellis Island records only one day after he recalled - sure it's him. One document calls his mother "Sine" which could be Nelsine or some such I'm sure. His US Marine Corp. enlistment from St. Louis MO files dated 17 Nov 1921 (typed by others) says nearest relative is Mary Jansen (maybe we're spelling it incorrectly previously as Jensen), 27 Blicher St., Aarhus, Denmark. I tried searching the census for 1906 and 1911 and didn't have much luck. My husband says he believes he was apprenticed at a young age - not sure what school or where. He was a tool and dye maker as a later occupation in the US.

Thank you so much - will pass along to my husband. May appear that he did not use correct birthdate as he said was born 1901 and you have found 1900 instead. Otherwise have no reason to believe this is not the right family. Will end many years of searching!

Thanks again - I did find that on the familysearch site last night. Am now looking to see if any of the family came over however briefly as I'm told they may have started a business here that didn't work out.

Thanks to the excellent assistance I received I have now traced both paternal and maternal lines back to 1700's via the census online. Is there any other information I may access for information on the siblings born in Aarhus city between 1899-1909? I did not have any luck in the early 1900's finding possible descendants of the siblings. My husband is most appreciative of finally knowing about his father's Danish family.
