Hi,I just read your information.I have done a family tree and now am writing a historical novel about my grand parents.Grandmother Synneva Hopperstad was from Vik and her husband, Carl Fredriksen Lee was from Molde. They lived in MN where I grew up.I have lived in Albuquerque for many years.I am trying to find out the year my great grandparents were born and I am wondering if you might help me.Here is what I have. Botolv Ingebriktson Skjerven 1772-1852 married Gitlaug-Larsdotter Skjerven-1850
Guttorm Botolvsen Skjerven born 1821 on Skjeven farm in Vik.Married December 30, 1865 to Britha Halvorsdatter Hopperstad Vikoyn who was born 1829 on a Hopperstad farm and was the daughter of Halvor Haldorsen.
Guttorm and Britha were farming Hallvardhaugen, a part of a Hopperstad farm and took the name Hopperstad.I am wanting to find out when they died.
Their children were Boltov, Brita, Synneva, Ole, Gitlaug, Hansina.Boltov and Hansina stayed in Vik and the rest immigrated.Boltov married Berte Tenold and raised his family in Vik.I have asked a couple of the descendants there for the information but have not had any luck.
