KVALSRINGEN/KINDSHAUGEN 30 Oct 1997 Joyce Quall Urban
Looking for descendants of Arnt Pedersen or Arnt Pedersen Kvalsringen and Elise Toresdtr. of Kindshaugen. Arnt was born December 9, 1864 in Kval-eie, Saksumdal, Faaberg, Norway. The 1900 census shows children Borghild Arntsdatter, b. 1894 and Teodor Arntsen, b. 1894 on the farm. Arnt is the brother of my grandfather Peter or Peder Pedersen Quall, who went to visit Arnt in 1927.

Looking to confirm birth of siblings of my grandfather. He went by the name Louis Nordle in the USA but it has been suggested he was born Ludvig IVERSEN, born June 2,1885 according to Buskerud parish of Lier, Tranby church records. Parents purported to be Lars IVERSEN and Annette LARSDATTER. Any info on them would also be helpful. Would church records confirm any of the following:
Brothers and sisters were:
Lars (died as a young child)
Louise NORDAHL b. 1/5/1893 d.7/14/1976 Bergen Norway
Peder NORDAHL b. 6/1881 d. 1960 NY, USA
Gina NORDAHL b. d. USA
Ingvald IVERSEN b. 1877 d. 1965 Drammen, Norway
Anna b. d. Norway
Louis b. 6/2/1886 d.3/13/1950 NH,USA
His Naturalization records state he "Emigrated from Christiana Norway on & Oct 1903 and arrived Port of New York 17 Oct 1903 on the ship CYSNRIO". Could this be confirmed by someone in the "Oslo Emigrantprotokoller"?

I am trying to tie my ancestor to Princess Cecelia (Sverri Sigrudsson's sister) My ancestor is Niri Ingebretson Rodningen Bakke b. 1741, d. 1805 is a 7 gr grandson to Princess Cecelia. Oral history says he married Anne Halvorsdatter Herbjornsrud b. 1744, d. 1810. Anne's father was Halvor Kittlesson Herbjornsrud (b. 1708, d. 1788) and her mother was Christine Jensdatter Skogen (b. 1707, d. 1744). Christine's father was Jens Hansson Reine aand her mother was Ingeborg Trolldalen Skogen. Then oral history says that Ingeborg's grandfather was a famous man named Hans Reine. The Herbjornsrud side also goes back to Hans Reine. They are descended through Ingi Baardsson Reine or Skulli Baardsson Reine. How do you find the descendency of royal people? Also who is Hans Reine and am I spelling his name correctly? Does anyone have any genealogy on these people? The rest of my family are from Buskerud Norway, Eftelot sogn.
