My father was Elias Olsen, born 2/7/1899 in the municipality of Vagan, municipality number 1865, name of domicile: Svolvaer. Elias arrived in
Quebec, Canada in April 1924. He was married in 1943 and was tragically killed in 1952. His parents were John & Hansine. Their children were (in order of birth) Amalie, Haakon, Elias, Alma, Alfred and Magdalene. My sister and I are trying to find any information about our father and if we have any relatives. Any help would be appreciated

Cold feets?

Banns of marriage in newspaper "Norsk Kunngjørelsestidende", Oslo, 14 Jan 1922:
Elias Schøning Dreyer Eliassen, stoker on Steamship "Vesteraalen", Svolvær and Borghild Natalie Olsen, Hammerfest.
(signed) Parish priest in Hammerfest.

Lastname should have been Olsen not Eliassen, but I assume it's him...?
Was he a stoker by profession?

How strange!
The Elias Schønning Dreyer Telstad who married Aminda Regine Arntsen (born Tromsø 16 Aug 1898) in Birkeland, Fana, Hordaland on 24 Apr-1840, is born in Svolvær on 02 Jul 1899!
Father is listed as deceased foreman John Telstad. Her father is listed as deceased fisherman Arve Sørensen. Aminda has been married before, but her husband is dead.

It must be the same person.

Hmm, maybe we need to go back and check some of the information provided by the OP on his arrival into Canada and work back from that and see who he really is.

This might be where the OP gets her arrival information from.

Elias Olsen

Name: Elias Olsen
Gender: Male
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1898
Birth Place: Norway
Age: 26
Date of Arrival: Apr 1924
Port of Arrival: Quebec
Port of Departure: Stavanger, Norway
Ship Name: Carmania

Lists himself as Fisher and is seeking work, going to Torn Sorensen of Rupert BC.

Nearest relative in Norway is Magnhild Aavold friend of Aakilhaven? Karmoen ?
