Comments: Looking for info on my great grandfather HAUGEN, Erik of the Haugen farm in the city of Kaupanger in the county Sogn og Fjordane, Norway. He died in 1948, or so, and is burried in the church graveyard of this town. His wife's name was Jorgina (poor spelling). One of his sons, Hans, is my grandfather. I understand he left the farm around 1910. He went to Bergen, then on to Canada. From there to Minnesota.

Comments:

I am part Norwegian and my last name is Tingom.

I am aware that there is (or was) a small town in Norway called Tonjum (?). I know this from looking at a Rand McNally World Atlas - Family Edition, copyright 1972 map. Does anybody know anything about this town, who founded it and if there are any decendants still living with a last name similar to Tingom or Tonjum? How can I contact them?

Acording to the map Tonjum is near Trondheim. I would guess it's about 45 miles west (and a little bit north) of Fagernes. I think it is at the far end of the Sognefford (small print in atlas, I think I spelled it correctly). If you know anything please contact me, thanks,

Chris Tingom

Comments: Thank you for the honor of listing my little web site on your index page. I have visited many of your links and am very impressed with all the useful and informative information you collected for us to use. I have to give credit to my sister Karen Ranveig Anderson without whom some of my geneology information could not have been shown. It is interesting how my parents created links in our names to family lines that were not traditionally those of inheritance. For example, my middle name (Osmund) is to a maternal grandfather, and my sister's middle name (Ranveig) is repeated in the female of each generation going back to Ranvig Rasmussen (Sand), my grandfather's mother. Is this a common naming tradition among Norwegian families. If anyone knows, please send me a message. Best regards. Art Anderson

Comments: I am looking for ancestors of Lars LARSON who emigrated to Newark, Illinois near the Fox River Settlement before 1859. He is listed in the 1860 Illinois Mission Township, La Salle County census. He married Sarah STEINERSDATTER POULSON in 1859 in Newark. Sarah emigrated from Fagerland, Sveio, Hordaland, Norway. Sarah and Lars had 2 children: Clara and Lewis. Lars enlisted in the army. He died in 1862 in the Civil War. His enlistment papers listed Stavanger as his birthplace. I do not know if it is Stavanger area or actual city. His widow Sarah remarried Christ LIND (from Hole near Stavanger) after the war. There is a John and Inger LARSON also listed in the census records next to Lars and Sarah. I do not know if there is any relationship. Any info would be appreciated.

John WICK arrived first, followed by Henry WICK, Karl WICK, James WICK and Sam WICK. Their parents' names were Soren (or possibly Johann) and Pauline. John, Henry and Karl settled in Tacoma, Washington and James and Sam in Ketchikan, Alaska with Sam later returning to Washington. Karl took his family and returned to Aalesund. His children were Selene, Selma, Ella, Kanda, Ester and Stanley. Possibly some of them may still be alive or at least would have children about 50 to 60 years of age. Selene later returned to America and settled in Sitka, Alaska. I am hoping somebody would have knowledge of Stanley Wick, living in or near Aalesund.

Comments: I was here a couple of months ago, when I was new to the search for my Norwegian ancestors. Thanks to Mr. Follesdal and several other helpful genealogists, I've located the place where my grandmother, Hanna JORGINE, born in 1882 came from -- the MELLEMVIK farm on the island of Donna. Her last name was not WICK, as I believed, but JOHANSDATTER. I now know her parents' names, Johan ANDERSEN, born 1849, and Oline JORGENSDATTER, born 1850. I haven't been so fortunate to pinpoint my grandfather, who was Jacob Anreas HARKVIGSEN born near Leirfjord, Nordland, June 6, 1880. He took the surname BREILAND when he came to America, and I've been told it was the name of his home. There was a BREJLAND farm in the 1801 census, but I cannot find it in the 1900 census, nor anyone in the census area with either name. I have learned to pay more attention to the farm name, first names and birthdates. I'm finding that surname spelling was not a big thing, and it can vary from one record to another, even in our local church. Thank you to all who have helped so far. If I have any relatives out there, I'd love to hear from you.

She emigrated to America in 1913 with her brother Arnold Hanson from Bergen. Arnold stayed in America for only about one year, then returned to Norway. Oline remained in America and stayed with the Sorm family (possibly Nels Sorm?) in Luverne, Minnesota. Oline had a sister Mathilda in the early 1940's who worked in hotels in Oslo. Oline had a brother Peter, and possible a sister Lenor? Can anyone out there give me any assistance?
