Betsy: I, too, have recently begun tracking my Haugen ancestors. Names are always an issue, because they sometimes bring their "farm" name or some derivation of it, or, I have been told, they were sometimes "assigned" new names when they arrived in the States. Two web sites that are quite helpful for Norwegian research are "Ancestors From Norway," at http://members.xoom.com/follesdalhttp://members.xoom.com/follesdal and a listing of ships' sailings from Norway in the late 1800's at http://www.museumsnett.no/mka/ssa/index.htmhttp://www.museumsnett.no/mka/ssa/index.htm. I also have some Haugen names from the Lac Qui Parle MN area that may have been related to my gr-grandfather, A.J. (Andrew) Haugen. If you had ancestors in that area, let me know and I'll pass along the info.
