One volunteer researcher posted this for you in the other forum, a possible emigration record for Christian Holm, but not confirmed:

Name: Holm, Christran Occupation: Møller
Age: 37 Destination: Racine, Wisc.
Contract no.: 148200 Registration date: 5/12/1886
Last res. parish: Havbro Last res. county: Aalborg
Last residence: Houbro, Aars, Aalborg Destination country: USA
Destination city: Racine Destination state: Wisconsin
Name of ship: Hekla

The man above is born about 1849 - about the right age to be your Christian Holm. He's from Aalborg amt. Below is an 1850 census record in Aalborg amt. Need more research to know if it is the same Christian Holm!

Aalborg, Fleskum, Nørre Tranders, Nørre Tranders By Nørretranders Sogn, En Gaard, 33, FT-1850, C1566
Christen Holm 46 Gift, Gaardmand, Huusfader, born in Ellitshøj Sogn
Maren Jensdatter       44       Gift              Hans Kone       Søndertranders Sogn
Villads Nielsen       22       Ugift              deres Barn       Her i Sognet
Jens Christian Nielsen       19       Ugift              deres Barn       Her i Sognet
Karen Marie Nielsen       16       Ugift              deres Barn       Her i Sognet
Inger Kirstine Nielsen       14       Ugift              deres Barn       Her i Sognet
Lars Christian Nielsen       12       Ugift              deres Barn       Her i Sognet
Else Christensen Holm       8       Ugift              deres Barn       Her i Sognet
Ane Christensen Holm       3       Ugift              deres Barn       Her i Sognet
Christian Christensen Holm       1       Ugift              deres Barn       Her i Sognet <------------

As you can see there are Nielsens in this family. All the children are siblings ("deres Barn" means "their child"). We can guess the Nielsen children are children from the wife's first marriage. More research needed to prove this.
