Father Mekal Norman Olsen b 1895 - d 9/4/1968 Wanganui New Zealand

Found Clarence and Mekal Norman in New Zealand but not in Australia, I have no information at all about Mekal Herman.

Michael Herman OLSEN was an engineer
trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/172425300

The tree on geni has him dying in 1896, before the two youngest children were born.

You have him as dying in 1922, after his wife remarried in NSW, though I can't see a divorce.

He is not the Herman OLSEN who died in 1916.
