Olson Family Records From Norway

I recently found many records related to the family of my 2x great-grandmother Ovidia Kristine Olsdatter (Olson in America). I had some information on her family that I had been given by my cousins still living in Norway, and these records aligned at every point with what they had said. I’m very excited that more records from Norway are making their way online.

The first is the birth and baptism record for Ovidia herself:

About cthomas1967

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
