I am very proud of my scandinavian ancestry. My grandmother, Alma Leonora Berntsen, came to Ellis Island in 1906 as an indentured servant, married Vilhelm Emil Heede (Danish) and lived in NY and then Hollywood,Fla. I believe her father, Lars Tobias Bern sen and siblings may have lived in Chicago.Parents from Bakke & Holum, Norway.

Comments:
It's not easy researching for Norwegian genealogy information. Especially when a person doesn't read Norwegian. The Brodahl name is the hardest to find...the Brodahls, Wolds and Hollums came from Trondheim. Erik Wold and his wife Marit Hollum were born there about 1840-50. I love the music on this site.

Very nice presentation. Have been finding that searching for the Norwegian side of my genealogy is a horriby daunting task. The name changes are driving me nuts. Have read everything I can find but doesn't make it any easier. My great grandmother Olea Ro always insisted she was related to the King of Norway. Could get interesting if there was a way to follow it up. Keep up the nice work. Enjoy reading it.

Hi, my maternal grandmother's family came from Trondhjem, Norway. We have the Falck line back to about 1465 when a Rockert Van Valckenier went from Holland to Norway and the name changed to Falchener and then it changed to Falch or Falck. My grandmother s branch moved to Wisconsin around 1880 or 1890 and they used the name Falck. My greatgrandparents were: Severin Hartvig Falck, born in Lovoya, Norway and Bertine Fjaer born in Namdalen, Norway. Bertine's parents were: Ole Grylling and Petternella Sve son. If you have any info on any of these people, especially Bertine and her parents, please contact me, thanks!!! Diane Lancaster-Lovejoy

Comments:
I have traced most of my ancestry to specific places in Norway except for one great grandfather, Knudt Gilbertson Wick, who came from somewhere in Hardanger. He was born in 1848 or 1849, an only child whose father died around 1850. He should be in the 1 65 census but I suppose the name could be Gulleiksen, or Gudbrandson and "Vik" could have come from "Ulvik" or some other place ending in vik. My other ancestors are from Hedmark, Sør Trondelag and Oslo.

Of course, in return I would be more than happy to contribute some words regarding my experiences to your web page. Also, I've studied orsk for the last two years at the University of Wisconsin, so don't be afraid to piont me toward something in norsk.

My Grandfather was born at Belsvika in Hemne. His father was of the Vitso family in Kryksaeterora. I am searching out the background of the Vitso family. He (Henrik) was born 12-18-1829. The Hofset family is a part of this family and I am in contact w th them, but they do not have any information for me to go on. My Grandmother Gissenaas was born in Rennebu and I have some names that go back some three or four generations. My Maternal Grandmother Thue was born in Larvik, and I am unable to trace her family at all. The name Ramberg is of my step-grandfather and I believe he was born in or around Trondheim. If there is any information or direction you can give me, especially on the Vitso's, Thue's or Rambert's, I would be VERY grateful. Darlene (Belsvik) Buck

Comments:
Dear Martin, I fell in love with your page at first site, especially the Christmas page. I even passed it on to a terrific waitress in a restaurant that shared her family's cherished recipe for lefse made from potato flakes (instead of pealing all those potatoes!) wit a perfect stranger. I thought it was the best thing I could give her in return! I just began my genealogical search this summer, not expecting to discover very much. It seemed that all my elderly relatives had just died recently. I made a wild call to the Westby, Wisconsin newspaper and asked for the name of the oldest Norwegian lady the editor knew. She didn't know my people but referred me on to another elderly lady, and so on and so on. Come to find out, I have lots of relatives alive that I have never met. It has been heartwarming to listen to their stories of my departed loved ones and give me the history of the family. I even made some blind emails to Goplens on web pages and discover d a whole missing side of the family in Richland Center, Wisconsin. Paul, a third cousin, gave me my great-grandmother Christine's line all the way back to 1586 in Norway! He was excited to get the "lost line" of his family. What has been a real surprise is how intermarried 4 of my lines, Goplin, Bakken,Adams, and Applemans, are! Due to the sparseness of population in rural Vernon County, everyone knew everyone else (and were often married to them!) so I was able to work on 4 lines at once! I was put in touch with a "Parr" who had researched my Adams and Appleman line back to the 1700's, only to find out that I had a picture of his great-great-grandmother and grandfather. I have discovered farmers and mill hands, professors and horsethieves. I hope to use your pages to research my other lines. I have Rasmussens from Levanger/Trondjem and Nielsens from Trondjem. I can find their families in the 1900 Norwegian Census (thanks to your web links) but not before that. The big mystery is why my great-grandmother Christine Goplen had the same maiden name as her husband and his parents. Did they adopt her Norwegian farm name or were they too originally from one of the 2 Goplen farms in Land having emmigrated many years be ore her family. Anyway, you asked for a "comment" not a book, so I will end this! Sincerely, Lisa Butler Monument, CO

Thank you for maintaining this website. It is interesting to see how many other people feel such strong ties to Norway and I do. I visited my mother's family in and around Rykene/Grimstad this summer, travelled to Stavanger where my father's family comes from and up to Bergen for the joy of it. I could have just stayed forever. Norway is the most beautiful place I have ever been, and I felt at home there as I feel nowhere else. We know a lot about my mother's family, but little about my father's, except that they are Olsens from Stavanger and have been there for 700 years! My great-grandmother, Olefine Olsen, left Stavanger via ristiansand in 1886 (I think). My great-grandfather, Thorkel Olsen, must have been a sailor or seaman, having arrived in New York and sent for his entire family (wife and 3 daughters). Everybody ended up in Brooklyn, New York, where I was born.

We were able to see on my father's side, Bjelde and Midje in Aurland (what an incredible drive to get there!) and on my mother's side, we saw Mikvold in the Stiklestad parish near Verdal. I have ancestors from many areas of Norway & have quite a bit of information on most families, abut am always searching for more. Any ideas on how I can find old photos of the farms?

I am a 42 yr old woman who just spoke to her biological Grandfather for the first time a couple of days ago. I have always known I was of Norwegian heritage but did not know just how much until now. My great, great Grandmother came to the US from a plac called Hovland Norway and through a roundabout way my family's name of Hofland came about. I am very interested in learning everything there is to know about my roots and will continue to read your great webpage. Thanks

Unfortunately, this is not something possible for me right now--I am a college student. If you have time and know of a Norwegian language site for English speakers to learn from, or a Word a Day type of site, I would gre tly appreciate any information you might provide.

He has asked me to do some artwork for the cover of his family history. I was looking for some styles of homes, and decorative motifs. If you can be of any help, or know a site that I may look at, it would be a bo n to my research as well. Thanks and good Luck to you! Chris of the family of "Barbo Christiansdattir"

Grandma Rosa Mae Widvey Burton was raised by a foster family named Lewis in Henry County, Indiana U.S.A. They were not Norwegian so my brothers and sisters and I are trying to find our Norwegian roots and in the process try to add some of the culture into our lives also. We have had some luck and hope to be able to start the search in Norway soon. Keep up the good work. This site is now entered into my Bookmarks and I WILL visit it often. Thank you for the Norse education and keep it coming. Kay

All of my sources of information to decifer plaques, pictures etc are all gone. No one knows how to speak the language in my family any mor . I want to also know a little of any relatives that may be left in Norway.

I have only just started research in Norway - I think you are "very well-organized" as far as records, genealogical assistance etc goes. My family and I will be visiting your country in June 1999 and will be spending time in North Norway - around Kristia sund, and also the islands of Smola, Edoy and Hallaroy. Keep up the great page - I think it's really helpful

In researching my families I found old baptism certificates in Norwegian. A Lutheran Minister who lives in Decorah, Iowa and translates for a small fee, translated them for me. The certificates read at the top "Daaps Attest" or "Daabs Attest" and he tra slated that to be baptism certificate. Also there is translation service through Alta Vista but they do not have yet Norwegian in their list of languages. Guess they are scared of it. Gerald (Gary) Anderson

So happy to find your dictionary. Have looked at a couple books called Volda Soga 1 and 2 but there is a number 3. I would like to be able to translate them so I understand what it is all about. My mother was born in Volda and I have been able to trace hem back into the 1700 in Volda. I know there is lots of relatives still in and around there. Would love to get in touch with anyone who might be related. Keep up the good work and I would like to send more words for you to translate.
