this is to PJ... I am of the same Kvale family that Lita posted about. I tracked one of them coming to USA via Quebec, and haven't been able to pick up on them from there...I know they began here in wisconsin...I have been trying to locate them there...so far no luck... some went to Illinois...that is where my Grandfather was living when i was born..he is the one decendant of the kvale family...that I was building my geneology on..at this time he is an Engebretsen...Lloyd E. (edwin)..his mother was Kari Engebretsen...she is where I tried to start on in wisconsin..so far she is a ghost in more ways than one.. I see there is also Nordhaus in here...my family always used to talk of Paul and I do recall thename of Nordhaus mentioned. whoever posted the notice for Paul did not reply to me...not yet anyway..
