I'm trying to trace a Julia Henrietta Graw/Grow (That is the closest spelling I know of) from Norway. I do know she was born May 28 1895. I do also know she resided in Hudson County, NJ for I believe her time living in the United States. She also married a Irving Clarence Garrison..

The 1900 and 1910 Norwegian census databases don't appear to show any such young woman.

So, WHEN did she enter the US? Have you found her on a passenger manifest at a US port of entry and gather all the little pieces of additional information that might be on such a document?

When she married did she have to give any additional information about herself? Such as WHERE in Norway born? Name of father and/or mother?

Possibly did a US obituary give additional information?

Wait -- If I completely ignore the last name you've given and search for a girl born about 1895 with a given name starting with 'Jul' and also containing the letters 'hen' -- the 1910 Norwegian census shows --

The same family in the 1900 census -

Lillestrøm parish is in Skedsmo district of Akershus, Norway. That is where you would concentrate your research first.

I think Thoraway has found the rigth person : Julias father Anthon Andreasson appears on a farm named _Grov_ in the 1865 census.

Wow..Thank goodness for your help...since a lot of this is in Norwegian, which I would love to Understand, can someone give me a layout of the information in English? That would be much appreciated! So, was the last name "Grov"?

So, was the last name "Grav"? (Sorry for the double post, the message boards was acting crazy). Also, What are some good sites to use to look up information? What should I look for...I will need to be translating everything, but any pointers would be fantastic.
