Jeg prøver å finne medlemmer av familien i Norge.


Explanation:
"I am trying to find members of the family in Norway."

The English sentence cannot be translated directly, so there are many ways of putting it.

The answer from MatsWiman is wrong. The word "måske" is Danish, not Norwegian. There should be no comma. The rest of the sentence is also strange.
