[#14652] Anne Dahlen Paulson

Recommended Posts

Guest Mausey Hagen

I am looking for information on my Great Grandmother, Anne Dahlen Paulson, born 23 Nov 1871 in Bjerkostal, Trondheim, Norway; immigrated in 1886; died 1956 or 1957 in Norman County, MN. She was the daughter of Lars Tommerman Paulson and Anne Johansdatter Dahlen.Lars Paulson and Anne Johansdatter never married. Lars and his father Paul Paulson came to US in 1878. Lars married Caroline Martinson in 1885 and sent for his daughter Anne.Also, I would appreciate any information on Anne's mother, Anne Johansdater Dahlen. All I know is about her is that she died in a nursing home in Norway during WW II when the nursing home she was in was bombed.Mausey

Mausey!I am not able to figure out what and where Bjerkostal is supposed to be. Do you have any idea? I don't!Lars Tommerman Paulsen - what you give as his middle name, is probably his occupation. Tømmermann means carpenter.Having said this - I am not able to locate any of these people in the Trondheim emigrant lists on basis of the information that you have given. For Anne I also tried to search for Anne Larsdatter.Have you tried finding Lars Paulsen and his father in the US 1880 census?

Thank you Astrid,I might have some new information about the birthplace of the Paulson family but because it is from other decendants of Anne, I am not sure how correct it is but here goes:Lars Paulson and twin brother Ole Paulson were christened 16 Oct 1842 in Sundal, More og Romsdalen, Norway.Anne Dahlen Paulson was actually born in Kristiansund not far from Sunndalen. Sunndalen is located northwest and across the mountains from Hallingdal Valley.Lars Tommerman Paulson was the son of Paul Paulson and Gjertrid or Gjertrud Olsdatter.Paul Tinderman? Paulson, born 1818 in Lesja, Gudbransdalen, Norway; immigrated in 1878;Does any of this help? Thanks.Mausey

Census 1865 - Lenke - Could this be Lars?

And this would be his father, I suppose:LenkeHis father is a carpenter, born in Lesje (Lesja) so this is probably the right man.As you can see from Nina*s link Lars P. is a farm hand at Storvik.Astrid

There are censuses for Sunndalen 1801, 1865, 1900, but no one for 1875 (not in the DA). No church records seem to be available on the internet.To find Sunndal (Sundal) you go to Møre og Romsdal and then S. By looking at the 1865 census I think I know the origin the mysterious name Bjerkostal. There are at least two farms named Birkestøl (Bjerkestøl) in S.You may find Paul, Lars and his daughter Anne in Emigrant lists for Kristiansund, Ålesund, Bergen, even Christiania. Maybe Trondheim should be checked once more?Have a try! I am having my very late dinner.Astrid

I am not sure how to access the church records. I have tried but I have been unsuccessful. Can someone please give me some instructions on where they would be located. I am learning some of the Norwegian headings of the columns for the census and emigrant lists, but otherwise I do not know much Norwegian.Thanks, Mausey

The English version:Choose categories on the upper dark blue line, then church registers (to the left), after that baptized, Sør-Trøndelag ('fylke')and Oppdal.Astrid

This was just rubbish, I suppose.Categories - church registers - baktized etc - fylke. Then you will see what is available in each fylke.
