You have found US censuses for this family? Those documents should give you at least aproximate birth years for each member of the family AND years of emigration from Norway.

Holme/Holm and Houge will not have been family names in Norway - those are likely to have been names of farms where their families lived or had history. These locations are also likely to have different spelling than you expect.

"Malloy" MIGHT be Meløy district in Nordland, Norway.

Thank you so much for the information. I know that they had a farm fjord and it was in the Mallöy area. I have the dates for everyone after Jacob and I haven't started my subscription on this site to look further but your information will help us further our research. Most of our family information is from family bibles combined and passed down from earlier generations.

Many Thanks
Jarvis/Whitney family

the church books and many censuses in Norway are online for free in Norway, so it would be possible to find the people and their ancesters for some generations in Norway.

One would need the right place and area and birthdates and names of parents and siblings to find the right churchbooks and censuses to look them up.
