Re: Jorgensen Family -Alsen, Schlesswig-Holstein 1911
Nate, you are at a big disadvantage because Sønderborg was under German control most of the period of your interest, so there are no available censuses to help locate them.

And I checked all parishes in Sønderborg county but found no male Jørgensen born 21 April 1851.
The nearest was a Jørgen Christian Jørgensen born 26 April 1851 in Ulkebøl.He had a sister Anne Marie born there 23 April 1853, and I note you list two of Charles' other siblings in Ulkebøl later.
Charles is an unlikely Danish given name for that period, and I suspect he also changed his first name upon immigration, but Charles was usually an Anglicization of Carl, although sometimes Claus.
Do you have any birthdates or ages of the siblings?
