I am looking for pictures of the ancestral farm of Olav (Ole) Olsson Haugen(b.10/3/1884, d. 6/11/1946) who married Jorunn Andresdatter Helle (b.11/26/1882, d. 11/28/1978) on September 23, 1904 in Valle, Aust-Agder, Norway--the same day they left for America (according to Jorunn's 1978 MN newspaper obituary). Here's the farm information from the Valle bygdeboker: These are the family farms of my ancestors that I'm trying to find ANY information on.1. Farmnumber: 30 1886 Landrecord Number: 28 Farm name: Hommehaugen Valle Parish, Aust-AgderMy great-grandfather: Olav Olavsson Haugen (b. 1884) son of Olav Olvasson Haugen (b.

Farmnumber: 70 1886 Landrecord Number: 67 Farm name: Helle Hyllestad Parish, Valle Municipality, Aust-AgderMy great-grandmother: Joraand (Jorunn) Andresdatter Helle (b. 1882) daughter of Andres Jonsson Helle (b. 1843) and Turid Hallvardsdatter Rysstad (b. 1847)Can anyone in Norway help me with photos of gards and contact information for who owns or lives at these ancestral gards now?

Some online pictures from Rysstad on this site: [url="http://setesdal.com/>http://setesdal.com/Rysstad / Hylestad is the Southern part of Valle kommune.The book 'Norges bebyggelse, Aust-Agder' issued about 1955, has pictures of all farm houses. (I haven't got it).In 1900 census Olav Olsen Haugen is on Haugen, Hylestad, gnr 66, bnr 1 (near Hovet farm): LenkeHaugen farm is between Bjørgum and Nomeland farms with famous fiddelers and silversmiths: http://theband.hiof.no/albums/free_field.html http://setesdal.com/sylvartun/no/Matrikkelen 1950 (farm owners): LenkeThe main farm (Bnr 28) is atill owned by a Olav O. (Olsen) Haugen. - Probably of your folks. If Gunnar Olsen, b. 1878, stayed on the farm, he should name his eldest son Olav Gunnarson Haugen. I made a search on Nettsnok: http://www.nettsnok.no/I found: Olav G Haugen, Hovet, 4748 Rysstad, born 1917.Helle, Hylestad 1900: LenkeAndres Jonsen Helle, b. 1886, is likely to take over the farm. He is there on Bnr 3 in 1950:

thank you, harald, for the wonderful and generous information about my ancestral farms that you posted. i am having difficulty with most of the websites because there are no english translators, but i'm working to find out what some of these say. I wish to send a letter in the mail to Olav Gunnarson Haugen and Jon A Helle, but i don't understand how both of their addresses could be 4748 rysstad. can you explain to me how to address an envelope from America to Norway so that it gets to these men? you have been so generous to me with information. i am sorry to be a pest.

Thank you, Harald and Eva! Another question: Do you have an address for writing to Valle Parish? I read somewhere that it burned in 1861, but was rebuilt many years ago. I'd like to write to Valle Parish in the hopes of obtaining any records related to Haugen ancestry and perhaps even a photo of the new or old church. And Harald, I LOVE the info you sent about Setesdal, the silversmiths and fiddlers of the region! I'm going to buy a CD! It's great music...a nice mix of traditional and contemporary.

The church records are kept at Statsarkivet i Kristiansand: [url="http://www.riksarkivet.no/kristiansand/om/adresser.html>LenkeHelle farm is 4 km south of the church, Haugen farm is on the east bank of the river 3 km north of the church. The church is Hylestad kyrkje: http://setesdal.com/hylestad-kyrkje/no/You can by the local bygdebok (farm history book), issued by Valle kommune 1985. You need volume I and II (Hylestad). They cost 500 NK. You can order direct from Valle kommune:

You are a Godsend, Harald. I have been looking for this information for about 4 weeks now; I wish I had found you sooner (or you had found me!). I will be busy for quite some time now with research, but atleast now I know my research will take me where I want to go! Thank you, thank you, thank you! You are so helpful and I hate to look a 'gifthorse' in the mouth, but I hope that you will grant me one final question to you. I am researching Ole and Joraand's immigration to the US. My last 'hole' in research is their port of entry into the U.S. On Digitalarkivet, I found them leaving Kristiansand harbour September 22, 1904 on a Cunard Line ship. There were almost two dozen ships that sailed for Cunard in 1904, taking the usual Norway to London to New York, Boston, Philadelphia or Quebec. Any suggestions for narrowing down or locating exactly which ship they might have sailed on? I appreciate your expertise and research abilities!

Hi Kristian. I've been all over the NorwayHeritageShips.com website to no avail. I have just found Ole's US Declaration of Intention papers that state he sailed from Kristiansand to Boston (probably a stop in Hull or Liverpool first, but haven't yet verified). He wrote Boston down for the vessel he sailed on, but the Cunard Line had no ship called the Boston. I'm thinking perhaps he just didn't remember the name of the ship, just the harbor of US entry. Anyone think it's possible to forget the name of the ship you immigrated on in four short years? Any other ideas?

Immigration ship mystery solved! I got my hands on Ole's Naturalization Papers and pretty as you please it's written: vessel S/S Saxonia leaving Kristiansand for Liverpool, then on to Boston harbour. Now, Kristian, that NorwayShip page is quite helpful indeed! Thanks to everyone for great help!
