|My great grandfather, Ole A. Olson, was born in Decorah, IA in 1868.His parents, Ingebrigt (Ambert) & Gertrude Jane Severson Olson came from Jostedal, Norway in the 1860's to Jackson Twnshp, Chickasaw Cty, IA, moving to Artisan, SD in 1893, then to Hayti, SD a year later.Ole & Nicoline Sveen Olson moved to the Adams, ND area, where Ole died in 1954.|
I currently have 15 generations dating back to mid-1500's to a Ragnhild Aasen (about 1540) and Knut Aasen (1565-1650) both from Aasen, Jostedal, Norway. I am wondering if Ragnhild is Knut's mother.Knut is the father of Anders Knutson Aasen (1596-1653) in Varmberg, father of Gunnhild A. Aasen (1637-1735).Gunnhild was married to Ole Arneson Aasen (1621-1700), his father is Arne Bruem (1590-1652) and Arne's mother is Helge Bruem (1550-1602) both from Bruheim.I am still researching for information on these people and possibly earlier generations.
I have a 5 volume set of historical books from the Luster region of Norway, written in Norweigan.I also have the Hamlin County, SD historical book and the 4 volume set of Walsh County, ND.I am willing to share information.
I hope to have this Tree published in the FTW soon.I have some clean-up work to do first.If you have any information on this family line or software, please contact me.Thanks!
