I have been trying to trace my family roots for several months now and I am stuck. I found some family members tracing the family line of Oleson but just recently my father found a copy of my grandfathers birth certificate and our name is actually Olsen. It was changed at ellis. Here is the info I have can anyone help.
Adam Michael Oleson b. 1978 Father Stephen Nels Oleson b. 1950 Ogden IA Mother Kathryn Saunders b. ???? Iowa Father Clarence Orval Olsen b. Dec 24 1910 Homer IA Mother Marie Christiensen b. 1883 Denmark Father Nels C. Olsen b. 1864 Denmark ?????
This is where I am stuck. I cannot find records beyond this. I am trying to trace the male line in my family and my great grandfather is as far as I can get. If anyone can give me advice I would appreciate it.
