We have created this site to connect all persons in our family branches, and to enable all relatives to collaborate and to share and view genealogy data online, including individual information, photos, histories, documents and cemeteries/headstones. Our ancestors have made possible the way we live today, and we owe them our gratitude and an interest in truly understanding their life histories and experiences. Start exploring the site to follow your family history, including the emigration from Norway to North America.
