Tracing Olaus Olsen - Vestre Aker - Oslo - Kristiansand - Ålesund

Surnames: Olsen, Nikolaisen
My great Grandfather, Olaus Olsen was born in Vestre Aker, NOR in 1846

I do not know anything about when Olaus died or the name of his parents. Would anyone have any suggestions on checking for death records after 1905 in the Ålesund area that might give a clue about his descendants and ancestors?

I have found him in the 1875 Kristiania Census at Fjerdingens Gade 40 with his wife, Karoline Marie Nikolaisen, and two daughters, Bestsi and Nickoline Otillie.

In the 1900 Kristiansand Census, Olaus is at Tangen 2 with a new wife, Anna Elisabet Olsen and 2 other children, Margit and Olaus.

I have a 1905 article from the Kristiansand newspaper, Fædrelandsvenn,which ends by saying
"Mr. Olsen leaves the City in the near future. He is called to Aalesund, where the same company is establishing a Gaswork."

Three of the daughters [Margit, Maia & Otillie] moved to New York and New Jersey. I think that the other 3 children [Karl, Betsy and Olaus]stayed in Norway.

Thanks for your help.
