- given your previous message, I suggest you acquire her marriage certificate from Manitoba:
(she is indexed as Jennie Dorothy Margaret Olsen, to Alfred Godfrey Cook).

There are digitised parish records online.

They also include some emigration records. The most likely, given the fact that she married in Winnipeg and her full birth name as you've listed earlier, is a family emigrating through Trondheim in 1906, resident Frosten:

Elen Debora Ols., married, b. 1862, heading to Winnipeg, notes "going to her husband".
Along with kids Ragna Joseffa (1889), Olga Ragnhild (1890), Johan Halfdan Berg (1895), Jenny Debora Magdalene (1896), Aslaug Ingvarda Sofie (1900), Jørgen Emil (1901), Halfrid Ingvarda Sofie (1903), Dagmar Gurine (1905)
