Well; here he is together with his family; living in Oslo (Kristiania Lenke I don't think it's easy to find much info on him in Norway. Acording to the childrens date of birth they imigrated Norway after 1885 (but before 1900)There's no other census taken, but maybe someone can look up in the address books for Oslo?I'll try to look for the siblings and possible decsendants;let's hope they kept on using their surname; it's a rare one.

That's fine Jon Erik; but can we find some decsendants in Norway; or did all the siblings emigrate?

I hope this ADDS a line to the existing MUNNICH discussion thread. I do not understand Norwegian cannot follow any of the instructions.There is a bewildering amount of information on the list, and I want to thank you for it. TWO siblings have been identified, going to Boston Then came the Social Security Death Index entry from Arne Solås, Bergen, with the Probable the death-registration for Selma (?) (SSDI) : Name: Selma Christensen HOW did you come to switch to the family name Christensen from Munnich?I also saw no way to respond to any of you kind contributors directly. Is there a way?Please can someone teach me?Thank youDavid Lewin

Thank you for so much help!!I would love a copy of the scanned images - and source of the records which you have found.Arne Solås, please teach me - how did you make the 'leap' from MUNNICH to CHRISTENSEN in your posting:Probable the death-registration for Selma (?) (SSDI) : Name: Selma Christensen SSN: 001-18-6759 Last Residence: 05346 Putney, Windham, Vermont, United States of America Born: 2 Dec 1891 Died: Oct 1978 State (Year) SSN issued: New Hampshire (Before 1951 )what does 'Ta vare på namn til seinare bruk:' mean - do I tick it or not????Thanks againDavid Lewin davidlewin@btinternet.com

If you when you get to the front page of Digitalarkivet press 'English' down to the left of the page you will get some English helptexts. Continue from there to this debate.It will explain the box. If you are on your own computer, it can be convenient to tick it.Without knowing, I would guess that the last name was obtained by putting the given name and the date of birth (which was given in the emigration database) in the SSDI, and got this as a possible hit. The census finds seem to prove it right.So of the at least six children of the Münnichs'(five in the 1900 census plus the Knut that you knew of) at least four emigrated (Knut, Herman, Selma, and one of Selma´s sisters whom she states that she is travelling to).

That is almost correct, but I already knew the name Christensen from the WWI draft reg. cards.

Jon Erik: At (7) you said she went to a sister.I have searched for the Munnich sisters as emigrants (only from Oslo) with various spelling; also with unknown surname (maybe she was married) No result so far.Where did you find 'the sister'?I haven't found Knut/Canute either. Maybe he emigrated directly from Sweden, and maybe there was another sister too?(I found a Canute Munich at Ellis Island in 1921; but if it's him it has to be another voyage)I have also searched for Selma's imigrant sister in US archives; no reult so far.Maybe some others can make it better?

It's always possible to learn!I found her in another archive; the emigrants form Oslo 1867-1930: Lenkeand there the information about the sister is not noted!Ok; then we know for sure one of Selma's sisters (maybe an 'unknown' from Sweden) emigrated earlier.

David; Did you get the scanned images (10,11 and 12)?NO - I did not get any scans. Did you send them by email to me? If so - I wonder whether possibly they got caught in spam protection settings ??? Can you please re-send - and warn me that they are coming, orwhich email address to filter in? David

David;I think you should try to track down Arne's info from the SSDI (5)You can try to get the SSDI-documents of course; but I would advice you as a step #1 to look for some genealogists in Putney. The population is only about 2700. Maybe someone rember her or better; maybe you can get an obituary.Here's a link to Putney municipality [url="http://www.putney.net/>http://www.putney.net/You can also try to put a message here:
