  1. Murray Rystead

    Gjertina P. Rystead ?

    Good Morning, I was wondering if anybody here would be so kind to help me figure out who this woman is. She immigrated to the United States sometime in the late 1800s, early 1900s to Minnesota. She was born in 1877 in Norway. On some of the american records it shows her born in 1876. Not sure if it's a typo or if they are mixing her up with another person with a similar name. She died in 1904/1905 in Tower, Minnesota. Also seems that her daughter died at birth. No name given. In one record if shows that her dad was Knud Eriksen and her mom was Helene Kristine Olafsdatter. Here are Gjertina's and her daughter's grave records. https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/155810225/baby_girl-rystead https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/155810216/gertina-rystead Also attached a copy of another record from the Minnesota archives as well. There have been some other records that suggest Gjertina was from Nordland/Flakstad region. But not sure if that's correct. If we were to be able to figure out her parents info and her's from Norway, as well as, figuring out which boat she was on and when she left heading to america that would be awesome. I haven't had any success yet. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you
  2. Hello from Brazil! Hans Johann Viehmayer was born in Flensburg, Germany, in 1899. However, due to World War I, he ran away from there and went to Norway, in order to not serve the war. When he arrived in Brazil in the 1920s, he had a Norwegian passport. I guess he applied for a Norwegian citizenship at that time, and because of it, he lost his German citizenship, since it was necessary to lose his German citizenship if he wanted to have a Norwegian citizenship. So, can you help me find some records of Norwegian citizenship applications between 1914 and 1923? Any help will be appreciated. 🙂
  3. I am trying to find out what happened to Hedvig Bauermeister (former Hedvig Eriksson or Hedvig Heiniharju), born in 13.3.1861 in Ilmola Finland. It is known that Hedvig moved from Ilmola to Nystad (Finland) and further to St Peterburg. There she was married with a "musikant" Albert Bauermeister in 1887. Albert was born in 1850. Next finding of her is from Norway: https://www.digitalarkivet.no/census/person/pf01037045194240 Albert was found as well: https://media.digitalarkivet.no/view/37045/20194 The story of her is fascinating. It is not known why she and Albert were living separately in Oslo, and with whom Albert was linving. But the most interesting questions are: what were her next steps, did she move somewhere else, somewhere in Norway or abroad, did she have children, where did she die ... etc. I am not so familiar with how to use arkivverket and what is system how to track persons. I would be very grateful if I could get some hints how to go further in searching new findings about Hedvig and Albert. Heikki Rantala Helsinki
  4. https://www.dailywire.com/news/30695/watch-tomi-lahren-responds-view-digging-her-family-amanda-prestigiacomo Her ser vi jammen hvordan både tyske og norske immigranter, som trolig ikke gjorde noen fortred i sin tid, da kan benyttes som argumenter i det deltakere i en immigrant-debatt jo ikke rømme fra sin fortid. Flott at man fortsatt kunne bli døpt på norsk på slutten av 1800-tallet, selv i USA. Mvh Are
