Re: Wangens from OTTA, Norway
My Grandmother Julia Wangen Munro and her siblings Jennie, Marie and Olaf emigrated from Otta (Lesjaskogen) in 1912. She told me they sold the family farm after their parents died and all moved to Canada. Olaf stayed there and the sisters moved on to North Dakota (Julia and Marie) and Montana (Jennie).
Julia Wangen’s parents are Ole Wangen and Margaret Brandli (one of the first county nurses in Norway). Ole Wangen’s parents are Ole and Jorginia. Margaret’s parents are Jorgen and Margret.
If you know anything about this connection or where I could go next, I would greatly appreciate it!
