More Info →Mr and Mrs Olsen - Scandinavian Settlers

Because of the extreme lack of variety of Scandinavian surnames (there were two Olsens or Olsons in the original Mauriceville Settlement alone), it is difficult to establish exactly who this family were. They were probably pioneers in the Forty Mile Bush area.
