|We have been researching my background and my wife's background.My background is:The WICKRE (WIKRE) family, which we now believe to be "Wikre" from the Wikre Farm in Karmoy, Rogoland, Norway, as well as the Akra region.We are still verifying and I have been working with a man in Norway.We have now gotten back to Elias Eliassen Tjosvold, who was the father of Knute Eliassen Wikre who came to the US.He was the father to my grandfather, Henry Wickre, South Dakota.|
On my grandmother's side, Ingeborg BRAGSTAD Wickre Thompson (Sater), we have been able to go back to almost the 1500's, and are still looking.
On my wife's side, I have just begun.We have traced her mother to the TIDWELL family, who has a long background from So. Carolina, Tennessee, Missouri and Arkansas.We are having a little more trouble with her father's side, PRYSOCK, but are working for ways to find out more.
