hrf & Lissa Thanks so very much ! Yes , I beleive that you both are on the right track and have found my Great Grandfathers family in Germany/Denmark.

Family lore always had it the he "was a Danish sailor". I understand that that area may have changed hands ( a few times) between Denmark and Germany.
Years ago , when I had an subscription, I found a record of ships manifest that Charles Christian had traveled from Honolulu to San Francisco about 1900 , that he had 9about $200 in his pocket, and he listed his nationality as German. I wish I had saved a copy of that manifest to my PC !
In the coming days I shall try and navigate the site Lissa tagged - and then I shall be trying , with the very helpful information you both have shared with me, to build memorial pages on Find A for the family of Jørgen Christian Jørgensen/Charles Claus Christian born 26 April 1851 (my Great Grandfather!) and his parents and siblings.
I wonder if any of the descendants have knowledge of , or wonder what became of , the Jorgensen man who left the area for Kauai in the 1860's ?
Thank You so very much for the assistance !
