My mother was a Bakken, from North Dakota. I live in the Seattle area.She had 6 brothers and sisters.I do not have much info on the Bakkens. Knute I. Bakke changed his name when he arrive in the USA to Bakken in 1861. He came from Hol Hollingdal, Norway. Lived in North Dakota. There are a few Bakkens in MT and ID. None of my uncles lived, my mother's sisters all moved to Southern California. I checked what records I have for you and your bother, no luck, but I do not have a full record of the Knute I. Bakken's descendants. You might look at the area around Grand Forks ND, (Sharon, Goose River, Northwood)Good luck.
