Thanks for the offer. I think that Oliver Olsen has been pretty well identified. Both the experts in Salt Lake City and Ingve Nedrebo do not think Oliver was born in Bergen, and they don't believe he would have changed his name. THe information in Gauler matches the birth date that I have. Oliver probably said he was from Bergen. It's really a more sophisticated place than Gauler. When people left Gauler, most of them went to Bergen according to the "udflinttede". I found a record of Oliver's sister moving to Bergen when Oliver was only nine. Also Oliver was on the Bergen randomized military records. So he did end up in Bergen at some point. Oliver was confirmed in Gauler, but it was after that that he most likely moved. His father died when he was only 8, and his mother ended up in Skilbrei (??) where she died. Couldn't find Skilbrei on the internet.
