Looking for information on my g-grandfather, JOHAN CHRISTOFFERSEN VANG, and his parents, born 27 January 1865. His place of birth was Hedemarken Vang, per Hamar. His death certificate lists his parents as BERTHA LARSON and CHRISTOFFER KNUTSON, it is believed that they were not married. Johan later married Johanne Stensrud on 8 May 1891 and immigrated with their 4 children; Ingeborg, Einar, Olga and Erik to the United States in 1902/03.
I have been told that Johan was a carriage maker in Norway and served in the Army in the "TALL MENS UNIT". Another family story has it that Bertha once took Johan to visit his father who house had a "big gate" around it, they were not allowed in.
If anyone has information regarding Johan or his parents I would really appreciate hearing about them, their ancestors and descendants.

Looking for information (date/place of birth) for Amelia ("Melia"?) Hadlund (Hadland?). Only current information comes from death certificate written (poorly) in script by attending physician in Minneapolis, MN, U.S.A., in 1894.

U.S.A. census records for 1990 were destroyed by fire and Amelia died in 1894. Next census was 1900, so no help there. Would like to determine exact birth date for headstone. She was buried in "public grounds" (unmarked grave) in 1894. She is my great grandmother. Thanks for your time.

BJORDAL/SWANSON/PETRINE 27 Dec 1997 Debra debra_johnson@hotmail.com
Hi. I am trying to trace my great-grandmothers family. She was born Ingeborg Bjordal on
25 June 1878 in Stryn, Norway, died 12 Sept 1943 in Portland, Oregon, USA. Her fathers name was Lars Bjordal, b. 11 Feb 1845 d. 1933. Her mother was Else Petrine b. 1850 in Stryn d. 17 Dec 1887.
Her sister was Lena. I am unclear as to whether there were other siblings. She immigrated to the US in approximately 1895. I believe she married my great-grandfather, Nels Peter Swanson (b. 22 Nov 1864 d. 7 May 1950) from Sweden in New York. They settled in Mandan, North Dakota and had 5 children: Ellen Nora (married Roren/Westby), Olga Signe, Clara Lillian (Cleveland), Ethelyn Vivian (Smith), and Norman I, my grandfather. They moved to Oregon (Woodburn/Portland) between 1918?-1922, where they lived until their deaths.
This is all the info I have on this side of my family. I have just recently started the search, but with the language barrier and my ignorance :) it is proving to be quite a challenge! Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Debra_johnson@hotmail.com

I am looking for any information about surviving relatives of my great-great grandparents still residing in Norway. My great-great grandfather was Christian Halvor Sveum, born on June 17 or 19 1862 to Halvor and Anna Sveum. Names of siblings include Edvart, Johannes, Karen and Berthe. Johannes and Karen are reported to have emigrated to the United States. Christian emigrated to the United States in 1883. In 1971 the family home was occupied by a younger Edvart Sveum, probably Christian's grand-nephew (this was reported by Christian's daughter Karen, who visited at that time).

My great-great grandmother was Ida Teoline Haslie, born on May 12 1866 to Martin and Ingeborg Nordrum Haslie. She had three siblings: Anna, Nils, and Agnete (Nils and Agnete were twins, b. 1869. Agnete died at age 7). Anna emigrated in 1878 or 1880, while Ida emigrated around 1882.
