    Seeking parentage of Georgina Marie Pedersen Larsen

    Michelle Hemenway Newbie

      I really want to learn more about my GGM, Georgina Marie Pedersen Larsen. What brought her to the US?  What her life was like, and who she left behind in Norway?  I know my GGM married Axel Larsen. They lived in San Francisco and their first child was born in 1888.  But I can't find their marriage certificate which may list her parents names.*   For all I know, they knew each other in Norway before Axel arrived in SF. I've also tried to learn more through immigration records, but I can't find either of them in Ancestry's records. I know from the 1900 SF census that she reported immigrating to the US in 1884.  I think Ancestry mainly has those who came from Norway through NY.  She could have immigrated through Canada and traveled by train or other means to San Francisco.  Any thoughts?


      * Family stories indicate she died in the SF 1906 earthquake but there is also no death certificate, no burial record which may have more info.
