Can anyone provide information regarding my relatives Oivind Hermansen or Arna Hermansen (nee Arna Booth or Arna Boothe), his wife? They moved to New York around the 1940's and I am told they emigrated from Norway through Ellis Island in the United States.

I would really like to visit Norway after I finish graduate school and get in touch with them. I have put this off for far too long, mainly because our family has been in disarray for years, with everyone fighting with each other for some reason.

My father and son of Oivind Hermansen, Russell Hermansen, lives in the Boston, Massachusetts area. Please email me if you might have any information at Thank you! :)
