Hello Helle, Please excuse my intrusian.However you are valuable as a Norwegian who writes and speaks English. My Grandfather Knut E. Risberg and his two brothers Sven and Per emigrated to America about 1900.Knut listed himself as a subject of the King of Norway and Sweden in 1900 when he applied for U.S. citizenship.He also said he was Eli's son.Norway and Sweden were combined at the time.There was also a sister whose name I think was Anne. Knut married Inga Opelonia Sodegren from Stockholm Sweden.Knut and his brothers all had families in the U.S., originally in Wisconsin. I have been in Sweden twice,1952 and 1986,and found a village named Risberg just west of Mora in Dalarna Sweden.There is another one north of Stockholm. Per's wife in Whitehall Wisconsin said he often spoke of Risberget and it is on his tombstone.Risberget means "the Risberg" and I believe "risberg" means a mountain with small evergreen tree sprigs growing on it.The women wear a wreath of those sprigs in their hair during the "Jul" holidays.I speak and read a small amount of Swedish. Two of my sons, Gustav and Eric,are planning a trip to Norway this Summer.I believe Grandfather Knut was actually Norwegian. We have a few questions that should be easy for you,since you know the area and history.
1.)Is there one main Risberget.Is it near Oppdal or Solor Norway or where is it.
2.)When the Hero Gustav Vassa (Gustavus I) made his famous run from Mora west through Risberg and into Norway was the main Risberget part of his route.Is this between Mora Sweden and Trondheim Norway.
3.)Is there any other history about Risberget.Did the Norwegian resistance operate there against the Nazis during world war 2.
Sorry to be a bother,and hope you don't mind correspondence.
