Thank you much. I'm slowly getting it together. love all this help. I do have a question though. What other name might I look for if Sverre was using the patronymic name? Would it maybe be from the domicile Opsal* or from his father's name? I'd like to have all the census he's in and see how close (if at all) he lived to Inga's family.
I am looking in IL and MN for Sverre before he married Inga. May have found Ole Drevdahl in Tacoma WA but need to check further.
I'm in Western Washington close to the mountains. Where are you? Thanks again.
