Hello! I am in the process of putting my family tree together, and I currently have over 1000 names, dating back to 1500-1600's. I am very interested in finding descendants of Hans (Storhans) Ellingsen Rønningen (or Sundrønning, from Røros in Norway), that live in the USA. The following people moved to the USA in the early part of this century: Ole Olsen Rønningen (b.1887), Hans Olsen Rønningen (b.1890, died in Idaho), Olav Olsen Rønningen (b.1892), Lars Olsen Rønningen (b.1900), Elling Olsen Rønningen (b.1902-1903), Ole Ellingsen Rønningen (b. 1895, married Signe Nilsdatter Storbekken), Edvard Ellingsen Rønningen (b. 1903), Magnus Ellingsen Rønningen (b.1909, died in Marysville, WA in 1985), John Bernhard Hansen Rønning (b. 1902) and Hans Laurits Hansen Rønning (b. 1905).
If you have any information, please email me, and I will add that information to my tree. If you too are interested in the family tree, maybe we can exchange information and hopefully add on to our ever growing family tree!
Otherwise, I can mention that most of my ancestors came from Røros, Holtålen, and Balsfjord in Norway. If you have ancestry from those places, chances are our trees will intersect somewhere! Please send an email!
NOTE: The following are English versions of some of the above mentioned names for search purposes: Ronning, Ronningen, Roros, Sundronning, Holtalen, Holtaalen.
