Gjest Kurt Magnus Ahlmark

Hello Norway,My name is Kurt Magnus Ahlmark I am trying to confirm the birth of my Grandfather who I knew as Magnus Olof Ahlmark. He was said to have been born in 1878 in Verdal, Norway. His mother was born in Alsen, Sweden. Her name is Brita Olofsdotter(alternate spelling Olsdotter). She may or may not have Ahlmark at the end of her name. My father's birth record may list him in any of the following ways: Magnus Olof Ahlmark Magnus Olof Olofsdotter Ahlmark Magnus Olof Olsdotter Ahlmark Magnus Olof Ersson Magnus Olof Erikson Magnus Olof Ersson Ahlmark Magnus Olof ErssonWhew!Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Kurt Magnus Ahlmark (Gator)

Kurt Magnus Ahlmark (Gator) back again,Wow that was fast! Thank you Jan Wiborg. Does that record list his name as Magnus Olof Ersson or as Magnus Olof Erikson? If not, how does it record the name of the child? Was Erik Valne born in Norway or was he perhaps a Swede working in Norway?At this point I am so confused by all the information that I have from Sweden and Norway that I don't even know if I am of Swedish or Norwegian heritage. How in the world do Swedes keep family linages straight with such a cavalier respect for family names and family trees!Thank you again Jan W. for your help.Kurt Magnus Ahlmark (Gator)

Click on 'Lenke' in the previous posts, and you will see how he is listed. The christening record says just first name Magnus Olof. The emigration records says Magnus Olof Ahlmark.Here are some interesting death records from Verdal: Erik [Persson] Valne: [url="http://digitalarkivet.no/cgi-win/webcens.exe?slag=visbase&filnamn=Dodsreg&variabel=0&postnr=6773&fulle=true&spraak=e>Lenke Erik is born in Valne, Alsen, Jämtland county, Sweden.

Erson and Erikson is the same name in Sweden. Just today I have been reading Swedish church-books and found a lot of 'Ole' Ersson, son of Erik 'Hansson'.

Kurt Magnus Ahlmark (Gator) back again,Thank you Jan O.! You have supplied so much good information. You would make a great detective! It appears that my background in Norway may be deeper that I first thought. I am familiar with those records from Sweden that you sited. What do you make of it. It seems like I have a background with one foot in Norway and one foot in Sweden, at the same time!I am going to take a break today to try to digest all this information! Thanks again.Gator (KMA)
