Re: verness / norway / minnesota
What part of Minnesota did your grandfather immigrate to? My great grandfather Nels Gustav Verness & his brother John came to Minnesota and settled in Dodge County (near West Concord). They both came here in the mid to late 1880's. Do you know what part of Norway your grandfather came from? Nels & John came from Borstua, Vaernesplass (hence the "last" name of Verness), Stjordal, Sor Trondelag, Norway. Is this the same area as your ancestors? I know that Nels & John had other siblings & cousins who also came to America around the same time, maybe by chance we are related? Email me at email@example.com.
