[#18576] Kristiansand ancestor

Recommended Posts

Guest Dick Norland

My great grandfather served in the Norwegian military in Kristiansand in the late 1870's or so and met a young woman named Christine. Ultimately Christine left Norway and came to Iowa and married my great grandfather Albert Norland. I have found her in a log of emigrants dated August 10, 1882 and she signed her name as Christine Hanson. Her wedding license application lists her parents as Lewis Alsbrahanson(Possibly Abrahamson) and Maria Lason. Does anyone have any clues on these parents? Where can I order military records for ancestors? Takk for all hjelp. Dick

Thank you for the ideas. Where is Kvinesdal? The foster child is not accurate with the girl's age. My great grandmother would have been 5 years old at the 1865 census. The other census listings are possibilities. Would anyone know where the military might have trained near Kristiansand in the late 1870's?

Yes. I think that is my relative. Another relative of mine thinks her father could be a Hans Ludvig. Does anyone find any Hans Ludvig living around the Kristiansand area?
