My name is Mark Olsen. Can you access my family tree? Rex's father Olaf Henry was one of 6 brothers and a sister. One of Olaf Henry Olsen's brother's name is Oliver Olsen (known as Oscar when he was in NZ). Oliver Olsen is my great grandfather. The parents of these 7 children were Arne Olsen and Ellen Olsen (nee Andersen). They arrived on the Hovding in 1872 and married in Napier in 1873. The most likely met on the ship.
That's just the tip of the iceberg. There's a few Olsens, descendants of Arne/Ellen that are researching our family.
If you are interested in knowing more - please let me know as I have a lot of certificates and photos which may be of interest to you.
