Thanks for responding . . . I haven't checked the messages for a long time.
I DO have information as to my possible Madsen ancestors but am looking for NORWEGIAN proof that the family I think I have is indeed mine!If I could find an obituary in Norway listing my Andrew Madsen dying in Chicago (Harvey), IL in May 1904 I would know for sure that the Andreas Madsen of Eiker, Buskerud is the same one.Then I could go from there.Do you have any contacts in Norway who are willing to help with death, obituary checking?I'm looking for someone willing to do it without paying an arm and a leg to have it done.I'm sure you understand.Thanks for your help.
