NORHEIM Sondre Auverson NORHEIM/NORDHEIM was born in Mogedal Norway in 1825. He is considered by ski historians as the first real teacher of skiing. In 1868 he exhibited the telemark turn. His pupils, Mikkel and Torjus HEMMESVEIT became mentors to skiers in Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesort. Sondre NORHEIM emigrated to Minnesota aroung 1872 and I know that he died about 1897. I am looking for where and exactly when he was buried in Minnesota and would like to find an obituary, or information on more of his life, what he did in the US. Does he have descendents living.

ANDERSSON, NORLIN My husband's grandfather, Karl August ANDERSSON, was born in Sweden in November 1869. He came to the US in the fall of 1893 where he met his future wife, Anna Sofia LARSSON, while travelling by train to Chicago. She continued on to Nebraska while he went to Minnesota to work as a logger. Five years later, approx 1898, he went to Nebraska to find her again. By this time he had changed his name to Charles August NORLIN. We would like to learn more about Karl/Charles during this period of his life. Why did he change his name, was it too common or was there something to hide? Are there logging records available for this time period, 1893-1898 (is there such a thing as logging records)? What were the "rules" concerning name changes? Was there a legal process involved or could he have just assumed a new name? Any help in answering these questions would be greatly appreciated.
