[#17916] Noreimsund - where is this?

Recommended Posts

Guest Nancy (Fostervold) Halvorson

I have an old photo of a homesite in Norway, taken by Joh.v.d. Fehr. (photographer) - Noreimsund. Does anyone know where that is located? I have relatives who came from Selbu, Romsdal, Sveio, Haugesund, Eiker, Buskerud and Telemark. I have no idea which families homesite this may have belonged to, I think Fostervold in Romsdal, but maybe not.

Thanks to Geir and Barbara for the information on the photo. Hopefully I can get the name of family whose place it is. Haven't really started working on my mother's side of the family to much yet. It's Emberland and Rod(Carlson) they are from Sveio and Haugesund areas. Most settled in Kandiyohi county in Minnesota.

With the help of Helga Kallevik, who is related on my mother's side, she found that the photo is of the Framnes school. She sent me a link of Framnes (Norheimsund) and sure enough the pictures are of the same place. Another piece of my puzzle solved!!! Nancy
