Surnames: JORGENSEN
Searching for information on my grandfather Kaj Jorgensen his siblings and his parents. Kaj was Born on 9 November 1907 in Denmark and left Denmark at an early ages (late teens)as far as I am aware to work on the ships and eventually was a Merchant Seaman. He arrived In Australia(unsure of dates) married Myrtle Pearce and had two children Shirley and Kay Jorgensen.

I am struggling to find any information, the only document I have and his family have in Australia, is a copy of his seaman certificate. I have searched Archives, Ancestory, Veterans etc and I am not able to pinpoint any further details.

His siblings: Fredrick, Ejnar & Hans
Father: Hjalmar Jorgensen
Mother: Anna Jorgensen

Unfortunately the only documentation I have is his Seaman Certificate. United States Department of Commerce port of New York August 2 1943, serial number Z 272 332 D 1

He passed away in Tasmania, Australia 1979 as a Veteran(Australia and American).

If you can help in anyway please let me know :)

Found a passenger list that showed that he was born in Marstal, so looked in the parish records...
They are available online at Arkiversonline. You have to browse, and some of the images are better than others, but they have the parish records for most of Denmark from the 1700's through the mid 1900s (and it's free) In Marstal's case they have records from 1698 through 1950.

I did find a couple other tidbits for you:

Ingeborg Kirstine Godtfredsen was born in Marstal parish Jan 7 1864 - parents Mads Godtfredsen and Ane Kirstine Erikson

Hans Rasmussen Haagensen was born Mar 15 1858 - parents Johan Peder Haagensen and Sidsel Kirstine Rasmussen

Frederik Hansen Jorgensen was born Jan 3 1835 - parents Johan Christian Jorgensen and Dorthea Sophie Hansen

(There were 2 Ellen Marie Christensen's born in Marstal at about the right time and I haven't had time to look for her marriage record yet. Hopefully that will tell me which is the correct one)
