Re: Geving genealogy search
Geving is my grandfathers middle-name, so I'm directly related to the Norwegian Geving family. Geving was my middle name as a child. I live in Norway, and I've recently started on my genealogy, including the Geving-line. I've always been told that everyone named Geving in Norway is related. The name comes from Laanke, Nord-Troendelag, Norway. I've checked with someone who is an expert on farm-names in Norway, and he said that Geving existed as a farm as early as the 1400. Now that farm and the farm-name has been divided into several Geving-farms, but still the name should be linked to only one family-line in Norway, if I'm not misinformed. I would love to hear from American Gevings!
