There is no nationwide index of marriages or divorces for Norway.

When was Inga born? where was Inga born? Where in Norway did she marry?

The 1900 Norwegian census shows ONE Ole Drevdahl in Norway. He is shown as residing in the city of Oslo/Kristiania, lists him as divorced and lists his birthplace as Skudeneshavn in Rogaland, Norway.

There is online information about the parishes of that part of Rogaland. Go to -

Click on the link for "County Books."
Then search in the link for the small city/port of Skudeneshavn for the name Drevdahl.

Without any information that her second husband came from Norway there is little justification to search for him there. Start with what you can find in Minnesota.
