Steven Harrell, Arna responded to your Lowell Olson query quite some time ago. I'll add to your thread here, instead of after Arna, because supposedly that way you, SH, will get a notification. However, the notification system at Genforum seems to be broken - people are not getting emails about their replies - so who knows if you'll notice this or not.
SH, I hope soon you'll stop back, notice your replies, and join the dialogue with collaborators trying to help you and answer your questions for you.
For future reference - you'll have to return to your many Genforum threads under your own steam, even if you don't get a notification from Geneforum. To find all your threads, click on your user name. Then click on "see this user's posting history."
Also for future reference - as Arna says, you have underestimated the amount of detail from the USA and from your own family history records that is necessary to post before volunteer researchers can help you. There are too many similar people, and details are necessary to identify a specific individual. For example, when you can, state a full birth date with day/month/year of birth instead of just stating a year.
Here are some records that MIGHT be for your family, going BACK in time.

Haha - I just noticed I already posted this a couple months ago (in a different thread of yours, where you've not replied - you haven't replied anywhere that I can see). Apparently I have no memory of writing to you earlier. Must have been a bad night. Sheesh. Anyway, it remains true that you have to post all you know from the USA and work back in time.
So that's it - Arna nobly tried to find your family in Norway based on what little you told us - and the rest is history.
