Hello. I'm not sure if we are connected, but my husband's great grandfather was born Ole Matias Tollefsen in 1818 in Trondenes, Norway. He married Ane Bohman (Bowman)? their son Johan Ferdinand Tollefsen was born Nov. 18, 1863 and died March 2, 1939. He married Kaia Louise Krane. Their children were Karen Dorothea b. Dec. 11.1884, Ole Andreas b. Mar 04, 1886, Lauritz Elisar b. Jun 4, 1887,Olaf Trygve b. Sept. 25, 1888, Johanne Louise tollefsen b. July 20, 18909 and Charles Kristian b. Feb. 15, 1896. Olaf Trygve was born Sept.25, 1888d. Nov. 4, 1946 In Whitepass, Yukon Territory, Canada. He married Brita Mathilda Anderson Jul 24, 1917 in North Vancouver, B.C. Their children were thelma Louise b. May 9, 1918, Rolf Clarens Tollefsen b. Dec. 28, 1919 in Tromso, Norway c. Jun 6, 1994, & Birger Olaf b. May 12, 1922 d. Mar 25, 1991. There's a lot more siblings etc. but my connection is through my deceased husband Rolf Clarens. Hope this is of some help, research is difficult whenyou don't know the language. Barbara
