Our Norwegian Heritage

Our Norwegian heritage comes from our mother’s lines. Our maternal grandfather Charles Melvin Olson was born in Greenbush, Minnesota. 

Grandfather Olson’s parents, Christopher (Chris) Olson and Carrie Josephine Pederson were both of Norwegian descent. Great Grandfather, Christopher Olson was born in Kristiania (Oslo), Norway. Great Grandmother, Carrie Pederson was born in Cook County, Chicago, Illinois.

Information and images have now been added to the Norwegian Heritage section. More information and images will be added to the Norwegian Heritage section in the future as family lines are expanded to include content our grandparents siblings and other family members.
