  1. Hei 🙂 Driver for tiden med forskning på slektninger som har utvandret fra Norge til andre land. Håper noen kan hjelpe meg med en sak i Australia. Saken er om min bestemors fetter Thorstein Olav Johannessen. Han ble født 16 juni 1912 i Oslo. Sønn av Hans Ingvald Johannessen og Margit Kristine Olsen. Thorstein emigrerte til Australia i ung alder og bosatte seg i Melbourne, Victoria. I Australia giftet han seg med en kvinne ved navn Florence, etternavnet er ukjent. Ekteskapet skjedde trolig i Melbourne. Ble fortalt at Thorstein døde i 1988 eller 1989. Takker på forhånd om noen klarer å finne informasjon. Mvh Fredrik Andersen
  2. Hello again everyone, I’m still looking for my GG Grandfather. Charles Peterson ( known as in Australia) his birthdate varies from 1828-1834, he went to the USA in about 1848-1854. He then married in 1855 in Troy, Rensselaer, New York, USA an Ellen Cavanagh who was born in 1839 from Thurles, Tipperary, Ireland. Her parents were John Cavanagh and Bridget Barragry, they never married, BUT Mary was written as her mother’s name on her death certificate in Australia. We are thinking that John Cavanagh’s mother was a Mary and looked after Ellen, when Bridget May of left or died. I have found a Bridget Barragry living with her sister in England in 1850 census. So, I need Charles Peterson’s parents names, his location / birthplace in or around the Arendal area of Norway and a more accurate birthdate. His name in Australia was Charles Peterson, but we are pretty sure in Norway it was either Charles/ Carl and Petterson or Pettersson. My father remembers an Auntie, telling him those details, when he was a teenager. Any help would be greatly appreciated, like always, thx Mark Peterson.

    Bredesen Family History

    Hello, My name is Sammy Bredesen, I live in the United Kingdom. I have been trying to find out about my family history, and have so far found out I have ancestors in Norway. I have hit a brick wall and in need of some help. If anyone is able or willing to help me please let me know. I have so far managed to find my 2nd Great Grandfather: Gustav Thorvald Bredesen - Born: 1883, from Grimstad Norway. He had a wife called Konstanse Elisabeth Lervik - Born 1895 With help from the Norwegian Archives, I have found out they were people who travelled? They were labelled as "omstreifere" on Jorgen's Baptism record. They had a son called: Jorgen J Bredesen (1917–1997) 17 Jul 1917 • Grimstad, Norway Jorgen died: 9 May 1997 • Mandal, Vest-Agder, Norway Jorgen was a sailor/ seaman. Jorgen had a son with Ivy Lynch (who he married in 1943 - in Swansea, Glamorgan, Wales). They had a son called Michael John Bredesen (1943–1980), this son is my fathers father (my Grandfather). I have hit a brick wall with Gustav and his wife. I've not been able to find anymore out then what I have stated. If anyone can help me please let me know, as I would like to find out as much as I can! Thank you Sammy J Bredesen
  4. Har noen erfaring med kjøp av DNA -test fra Ancestry? Jeg tenkte å kjøpe nå, men jeg så (før jeg begynte å legge inn noe informasjon) at sikkerhetsikonet i adresselinja manglet. Så spørsmålet mitt er; har noen opplevd det før hos Ancestry? Jeg kan jo samtidig spørre om noen vil anbefale en test fra et annet sted?
