I would like to find where CARL MARIUS SORENSEN came from in Norway, when he emigrated and any relatives and ancestors there.

My grandfather, CARL MARIUS SORENSEN, b. 1896, came to Canada from Norway about 1912 with his sister ELINA, b. 1893, and his mother MARIE/MARIA TAGGERSEN/TORGGERSEN. Carl married in 1920 in Ontario, Canada. His marriage certificate has his mother's name, as above, and his father's name is CARL SORENSEN/SANENSAN. Carl's father's birthplace is Norge/Karge. It's hard to read the writing so Karge may not be accurate. The dual names are because the marriage certificate has the names written twice on the form and they differ. I have written to the Canadian government and found that neither Carl, my grandfather, nor his sister, applied for Canadian citizenship. I have their death certificates and I'm waiting for information from Stats Canada concerning the 1940's required registration of all citizens with the hope of obtaining information about where in Norway they came from, relatives there, etc.

Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
Thanks, Peggy
