I am researching my norweigan ancestry and I can't find any of my family using this site. I am probably doing something wrong. My great grandfather was born in Christiana on 19.08.1866. He moved to the UK and lived aboard the William Yeo where he met Susan Hosking. They had 15 children and he died on board the SS Duckbridge on 22.02.16 when it was hit by a German mine.
His father was Rasmus Truls Thoresen (05.01.1839-1875).
His mother was Anne Petria Hansen (1833 - ?)
