William Erickson posted a topic in Brukernes eget forumHello, I am researching my family in Norway and would like to find someone to correspond with. I found a post here from 2005 between my cousin Myrna McGhie and Lars E. Oyane, which was fantastic information, and I see Lars that you are still active here. Thank you. My great grandfather was Kristen Erikson from Aksdal, born in 1810. My great grandmother was Brita Isaksdtr from Utbjoa, born in 1821. They lived on the Skarhaugen farm in Utbjoa, for 8 years before immigrating to the United States in March, 1857. They had 4 sons, all born in Norway. Erik b. 1849 – Isak b. 1851 – Lars b. 1854 – Hallvar b. 1856. Hallvar, known to us as Oliver, was my grandfather. This information was provided to me by Arlen Twedt of Iowa USA and is from the Ølen bygdeboker. I am planning a trip to the area in July, 2021 and would appreciate any help in finding information on the families or Skarhaugen farm and where it was. I would not want to travel all the way to Norway to end up in the wrong part of the country. Tusen takk Bill
