I am looking for information on my grandfather, Norman Andrew Olssen, born 19 March 1893 in Bodo, Norway. His death certificate lists Elmer Olssen and Anna as his parents. They remained in Norway. He ran away from home at around 16, and worked on ships. I've read his arrival in the U.S. as 1910, 1911 and 1912. Once here, he claimed his parents were dead, although his mother advertised in a Norwegian newspaper looking for him. Sadly, nothing is remembered about her name and he never responded to the ad. I have extensive info once he was in the U.S., but little to nothing in Norway. I'm told his mother remarried, and he ran away because he hated his stepfather. Any clues would be greatly appreciated!
