This is my wife's family and we would like to be able to track her grandfather, Emil Olsen b. 1868 m. Jennie Flucsrud b. 1873. Married in Norway then to US (NY) early 1900s. He died in Los Angeles, CA 1953; she died NYC, NY in 1917. There 4 sons (including my wife's father, Raider Bjorn Olsen) came to California.
Emil may have left for America first, since the emigration registers from the port of Oslo (Kristiania) show that the mother Jenny and the sons were living in Drammen (her hometown) just before THEY left for America.http://digitalarkivet.uib.no/cgi-win/webcens.exe?slag=visbas...

Leaving Oslo, May 21, 1903, having lived at Drammen, going to New York.
Their destination is New York, so they may be on the Ellis Island records.
I think this is Emil Olsen leaving Oslo the fall before. http://digitalarkivet.uib.no/cgi-win/webcens.exe?slag=visbas...
