Looking of ancestors or descendants of Martin Solberg. He was the son of Olaf Solberg. Martin was born in Drammen, Norway in 1858 and died in 1938 in Chicago. Martin immigrated in 1883 according to the 1920 census and he had at least one sister ( I don't know her name). He married Janise "Jenny" Berskaug (the spelling on this name has many variations) in 1884 in Chicago. Martin and Jenny had 10 children:
Clara Lily (my GGrandmother), Arthur William, Jenny Margaret, Alpha Valeska, Edith Signe, Martin John, Arthur William (the first one died as an infant), Ruth E., Eleanor, Beatrice, and Chester Leonard.
