This is the result of 10 years of work researching and asking lots of questions. I have found that the majority of my extensive family is living in Norway. I must thank Ingvar Stenersen, Kari and Fredrik Koch, Margrete Aanensen, Terje Østrem, Per and Marith Osmundsen, Christine Anderson, Odd Terje Ellingsen and Stein Høiland for much of the information and putting me on the right track in my research. Information was also obtained from family bibles, Norwegian census, and bygdeboks "Sogn om Sauda" books I & II, "Søndeled" volumes I to V and "Sand - Gardar og folk I, II, III"
Tusen Takk min familie!
