This is a compilation of information about my ancestors who came from Norway. After traveling to Norway in 1998 to visit relatives there for the first time, I became very interested in my geneology, and began my quest to find as many facts as I could. We have extensive family in the USA, and there are still many cousins living in Norway today. I began to study Norwegian so that I could interpret records in that country, and returned to Norway in 2004. I visited many of the farms on which family members had lived, looked at church and census records, and met with Steinar Vissebraaten in Nes, Hallingdal, who had a wealth of information from the church records in Nes. I am currently in the process of entering all of this information into my geneology program and will have it available here for you to read as soon as possible.
