Hello Susanne - the birth details we've posted for Henning and Ragnor give their parent's details.

I'm afraid I don't know anything about ordering US death certificates, or what info is on them, but someone else on here might.

This must be the 1910 that you refer to:

>>>Gjertine Stokke tj ug Tjenestepige 03.09.1892 Valsøfjorden
Anna M. Ulvund tj ug Tjenestepige 30.11.1897 Stangvik

I don't know if we can be sure that this is the same person. The birthdate differs from that on the naturalisation (22 Jul 1897). I can't find Valsøfjorden on a map to see if it's near Kristiansund.

Her status of "tj" means she was a servant to the family, marital status "ug" means she was single and "Tjenestepige" is a maid.

She was a shopkeeper when she went to US, but that was 13 years later.

Susanne, so that we can try to tie Carl Ejene to Ragnor and Henning, can you tell us any more about him? His occupation, wife, date of birth - anything like that.

We might be able to find some records that pull everything together.
