Hi Steve, if we look for information on the family line you describe, that will include the wife and children of the earliest ancestor listed, born 1770, and his locations and occupations and transits and so on. It will include the same information on the ancestor born 1803, and the ancestor born 1834 and the ancestor born 1861 and the ancestor born 1896 andalso, finally Lowell Olson. That's a good project for the years 2014-1016. The details in your query suggest you know a lot about these Olsons. I suggest you choose one of the people on the list and post all your records (transcriptions of records are best) and explain all the family stories regarding that person. (Those records will overlay with his parents and children.) Then point out where your gaps are - what records weren't you able to find? What information was found but is confusing? What is it about that person you need to know? This more focused search strategy can be repeated in another query, and another, following the family line from most recent person back and back in time. New queries can be cross-referenced with old. Just mention the previous query and post a link to it. Hope this helps!
