Looking for full naturalization cert. for gr. grandfather Jorgen Peter Olsen around 1880. Born in Denmark Falster, born 1864 married in 1890 in Warragul Vict. Want to see if I can find out ship he came on.
Shirley, I found the following info doing a google search - try searching the NAA record search using the alternative christian names mentioned
Shirley, this might be his naturalization as the name/age fits but I am not sure
There are quite a lot of John OLSENS naturalization listed on the NAA under Name Search - Immigration & Naturalization Records
Hope this link won't time out
if this is not him there are plenty more to explore via Record Search
Unfortunately you’d kept the details regarding this guy to a minimum. Not a good idea when there are multiple persons with the same kind of names. So first I had to spend time on determining the right guy…
It turns out that around 1900, farmer Jorgen/George/John Peter Olsen was living with his wife Florence in Jindivick. According to a 1904 directory Jindivick was the old name for Tarago.
With these additional details I am fairly confident that "John Peter OLSEN" received his naturalization certificate on 31 Aug 1904 (age=40, no of cert=1424, no of papers = 5889). However, the NAA does not seem to list his file yet (probably in series A1), so you'd need to contact the NAA directly.
Note: As the file could not even be listed yet, it is highly unlikely that it is digitized, so you might need to pay for this to be done (or visit Canberra?).
In case you don’t have got the following yet, this is his possible Copenhagen police emigration info (no ship name is given, maybe he left via Germany or maybe he worked as a sailor etc)
Olsen, Jørgen P.

PS could this be family?:
Olsen, Ole P.
Found them!!! (thanks to Ole):
Jorgen and Ole “Ohlsen” arrived from Hamburg on 15 Nov 1883. The ship was called Etna ….

Ole is the first name on the next page …

On 19 Nov 1983 the 2 brothers continue to Sydney first: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSMP-57QF-D?i=967
Hi I am wondering how it is established the boys went to Sydney, from what I saw of that shipping list they had Melb next to their names although some had Sydney, so assume that some went to Sydney?
I’m not sure what you mean?
The first passenger list was an inward passenger list for arrivals into Victoria from foreign ports (i.e. https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSXD-NSXK-K?i=493 )
The second was an outward passenger list from Victoria to interstate and overseas ports (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSMP-57QF-D?i=967)
So, the Etna arrives in Melbourne on 15 Nov 1883 and continues to Sydney on 19 Nov 1983 with seemingly abt 2/3 of the original passengers who had embarked in Hamburg.
As Jorgen and Ole are mentioned on that second list, they would have continued on to (at least) Sydney.
