Re: Birth of Andreas Martinus

Thank you so much for the email links. I look forward to reading them and learning more about my norwegian lineage.

The eldest my Great Uncle Andrew Martin Olson and my grandfather Olai Olson.

It was rumored that they changed their name from Anderson to Olson. They thought the Olson name would be less common then Anderson. From what I have read would Andrew have been the given name of his paternal grandfather and Olai the name of their maternal grandfather?

I was wondering how would I go about finding information regarding my grandfather Olai service with the Norwegian Militia. Is there a center in Norway that I could contact or a web site that I might visit?

Also, my great grandfather was a sailor or fisherman who died at sea. Again, is there a place that I can write or a web sight I might visit to get this information.

Once again thank you so much for all your help. I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Linda
