  1. I’m trying to track down my great grandpa’s home town near or in Fredrickstad Noway where he lived and emigrated to the USA VIA Quebec in 1878. He was born in. Sweden in 1853 and moved to Fredrickstad Norway with his family in 1856. Looking for last address in Fredrickstad and any living relations. Have seen him named both Swan and Sven. His father’s name was Olaf Olson. Any help or direction would be appreciated. Jack Olson
