[#28246] Living descendants of Oline from Sel, Gudbrandsdalen ?

Recommended Posts

Gjest Aud Sandbu

We are trying to find living descendants of Oline, a woman who emigrated from Sel in Gudbrandsdalen, to USA in 1898. Our local church record tells that she was born 21st November 1872. But we have a picture from Oline's 81th birthday in 1955, (then she should be born 1874) so we are not sure she was listed with her right birth year in USA.The picture shows Oline with her daughter in law, Betty, and a grandchild called Cathy.Another picture shows Oline with her two daughters Ellen and Ester. We don't know for sure, but if we remember right, Oline had five children. One of them was a son called Oscar, maybe!We don't know her husband's first name. The family name was Johansen.This is Oline living at Ingeborgøien in 1875: [url="http://digitalarkivet.uib.no/cgi-win/webcens.exe?slag=visbase&filnamn=f70517&gardpostnr=4&personpostnr=26&merk=26#ovre>LenkeAnd we think this is Oline emigrating from Kristiania/Oslo:

Hi, Aud! Have you tried the newsgroup soc.genealogy.nordic? Quite a lot of Americans are visiting that group.

The main access to this newsgroup is with a newsreader, but you may use 'Google groups' ( Lenke ). With Google there is a time delay though.

Aud, I suggest that you try contacting the Yellow Medicine County Historical Society at Granite Falls, MN. I have an old phone number for them: (320)564-4067. I think the Curator is either Denise Peterson or Corrine Steffen. I also have an e-mail address for Corrine, which may, of course, be outdated: csteffen@kilowatt.netCordially yours,Lars E. Oyane
