Re: meaning of 'bakken'
My great grandparents emigrated from Norway, and we think the name changed upon arrival somehow from Bakken, or Baaken?to Bacon, which is my surname.

I've tried to find the ship's passenger list, but evidently his crossing was one of the ones not available.
This version of the Bacon/Bakkens landed in Minnesota and the Dakotas, and my family branch eventually moved into Saskatchewan and Alberta.
I amposting to the alternate spellings, to see if I can get back to Norway and Snertingdal and other valleys there.
