My great grandfather Olaf Engebretsen or Holtet b.1880 seem left Elverum, Norway (farm name Riskjernholtet) around before 1900 and settled in Steilacoom/Tacoma, Washington. He married to Johanne Jacobsen. Olaf died 1928.Wonder anyone out there know about them? Johanne had three brother Ole, Hjalmar and Ivar.
I am wondering Olaf & Johanne married before or after moved to USA from Norway? Where/what/how they get here.
Is there any free census lookup via internet for Washington State?? I am trying to advoid to pay fee at Ancestor.com (70 bucks a year)
