About Our Family Research

I am researching my family from Renville County Minnesota, mainly the town of Olivia. Surnames included are:

My NELSON line is from Slesvig Denmark. They came to the USA in 1880 & 1881. NELSON may have been NIELSEN in Denmark. There may also be a link to NIELSON in Flensborg Denmark, but i can not confirm this as yet.

My other Family tree site, which is linked below, has the whole family tree as I have it to date. I have also included pictures on that site. I will be adding pictures here as well as soon as I get a chance to scan them in.

The Knutson Family link was done by my Brother in law and has pictures of his family.

If you have any information please let me know.
