The free databases at indicate that Otto Andersen Bjørkmann was born about 1859 in Stor-Elvdal district of Hedmark, Norway.
He appears in the 1875 Norwegian census living there with his Swedish born father.

The LDS library catalog also available at informs that Stor-Elvdal was included in the clerical district of Åmot so that is where I decided to look for his birth/baptismal record.

He was born 20 Apr 1859 -- see record #66

The family in the 1865 Norwegian census -

That is where you start.
