My grandmother was born Kindseth in Norman Co. next county over from Mahnomen Co. I also was born in the town of Mahnomen, this is also where my older sister lives. The Kindseths came over from Trondheim, Norway in 1871 and settled in Goodhue Co. in SE MN where there are many descendants today. My great grandfather(Peter P Kindseth B. 11-15-1853) moved to NW MN in 1887, the same year he married Olive Mahre, also born in Stordalen. I was 4 years old when he died in 1953 at almost 101 years old. Please let me know of your connection with the Kindseth family. I have more info. if you need. There are hundreds of kindseth descendants around the US and Canada.
