Jorgensen Genealogy & History

Jorgensen family history notes that this is a common Danish-Norwegian patronymic surname meaning son of J�rgen, which is the Danish version of the Greek georgios (farmer) or the English George. Very little is known about its Scandinavian origins. It is a very popular name in Denmark, shared by about 1.8% of the population. By the 1640s approximately half of the 1,000 people living in the colony of New Netherlands (later New York) were Danes; a number of them were likely named Jorgensen. Notable individuals in the Jorgensen genealogy include molecular geneticist Richard A. Jorgensen and Wilco keyboardist Mikael Jorgensen.
