There is one 'Sorlie, Hartvig' residence Kristiania, Arriving Ellis Island in 1923,62 years old.Maybe this could be you grandpa; Sorli, Hartvig Karl Johannes, residence Kristiania, arriving Ellis Island in 1904, 20 years old.Painter. Going to Chicago. Going to his brother in law Soderquist. [url="http://www.ellisisland.org/search/passRecord.asp?pID=102517100464&MID=15557714200030707104&>LenkeLeaving from Kristiania: Lenke1900 census Kristiania; He's written as Harvig Sørlie, born 1884 in Kristiania. Intersting..I can't find his parents, but it seems like he's living with two of his sisters and his comming brother in law Soderquist,who was a Swede.

Did you his wife's name was Valborg? I've found him in the 1920 and 1930 census, have you found these already? Roger.

Do you have the obits for his sons George and Edward(einar/einer)? Edwards wife may have been Lucille. Do you have this info? If not i can post the details and sources; Valborg died March 8, 1928 in Oak Park, Il., and i have a possible Gustav, but i don't wish to post what you already have. What was the sisters name? Roger.

Per Calif death index: Sorley Edward G; b 04/18/1907 to Valborg; from Ill; died San Diego County(37) on 12/14/1980 at 73. Possible wife: Lucille, b 4/12/1909, died Los Angeles County(19) on 9/16/1995 at 86. Possible George Sorley, b 23 jan 1909. d Jan 1975 at 60102-Algonquin, Mchenry, Illinois, per ssdi. Their death certs and newspaper notices should confirm or refute...perhaps the married names of the 2 sisters will be given. Can you order LDS film for Valborg(Ill index) or shall i? Roger.

And per Ill index, a possible Gustav Sorlie, d 1948-3-8; Kane County, Elgin. The Elgin PL may do an obit lookup; Google and then nav the site, Roger.
