[#45748] Looking for emigration information on Nils I. Fedje

Recommended Posts

Gjest Neil Fedje

I am trying to determine how my Grandfather, Nils Iverson Fedje, emigrated to the United States. The family has no record and I have not found any information yet in the United States. He was born 15 April 1860 in (leikanger) Feios, Sognfjord, Norway. His parents were Ivar Torson Feidje and Gjertrud N. Isdtr.(Borlaug). I have not yet been able to locate the Emigrand Lists (Emigrantprotokoller) which I hope will give me the approximate date he left Norway. He left Norway and came to the U.S. sometime in 1886 or 1887. Since I can't find any records in the U.S., he may have come through Canada. Once I have an approximate date, I can begin searching ship passenger lists.

On the list Nils Iversen used the name Fosse? There are 3 farms named FOSSE in 1900 in the same area as farm FEDJE.Here you have one named FOSSE: LenkeNils was a farmer when he left Norway. He might have farmed on Fosse farm at the time he left?Gunn

I also found the marriage of a Thor Nilsson and a Synneve Iversdtr, but the farm names do not correspond, so I'm not quite sure: Lenke

I clicked on the wrong link for Nils Iverson's birth (his parents) Lenke This should be right, so the one who emigrated with the name Fosse is probably, as Gunn said, the right one.

Here's some more:Ole Hansson Bårlog in 1801: [url="http://digitalarkivet.uib.no/cgi-win/webcens.exe?slag=visbase&sidenr=10&filnamn=f11419&gardpostnr=49&personpostnr=1323&merk=1323#ovre>LenkeParents: Hans Pederson (b about 1740) and Gertrud Olsdtr (b about 1747)Gietrud Eriksdtr Fedje (she's set as 30 years old here) with her first husband in 1801: Lenke Britha Hansdtr Bårlog 19 years old in 1801 (no doubt the one who married Anders Olsson and thus Marta Andersdtr's mother: LenkeIt's not her mother here, Brita is from his first marriage.Her mother seems to be Steenor Pedersdtr: LenkeAnders Olsson seems to be born in 1774 in Flåm, Aurland and he married Britha Hansdtr Bårlog in 1804. Here it's said she was born in 1784, but we often have some discrepancies when it comes to birthdates: Lenke Here's Anders Olsson Flåm (Aurland) born in 1773, father Ole Haldorsson/Halvorsson Flåm: LenkeHere's no doubt Anders Olsson Flåm/Flom (Aurland/ Uhrland) in 1801, if you look a bit further up, you'll find Ole Halvorsson (67 years old) and Martha Jonsdtr (57 years old) who are no doubt his parents:

I found a Stenohr Pedersdtr Bårlog born in 1751: LenkeThey may have got the 1 and the 7 wrong since she's supposed to be born around 1757 in the other records.Unfortunately her father is just called Peder Bårlog.

I found a Peder Hansson Bårlog (b ab 1719) married to Caren Endresdtr Grinde (b ab 1729) in 1749, they could very well be Steenvohr's parents: Lenke

Hans Bårlog b ab. 1685 married Stenor Mundal b ab. 1695 in 1715: LenkeThese are, no doubt, Peder Hansson's parents and the names show that Peder and Caren must be Steenvor's parents. She must be called after her paternal grandmother.

These are no doubt, Anders Olsson Bårlog/Flåm's parents: [url="http://digitalarkivet.uib.no/cgi-win/webcens.exe?slag=visbase&sidenr=101&filnamn=sognvigd&gardpostnr=26385&merk=26385#ovre>LenkeOle Halvorsen Flåm - a widower, and Martha Joensdtr Frondal. Married in 1784. So maybe he was born in after all. If not it must be the woman underneath who is his mother.Ole Halvorsen Flåm was also married to Martha Botoldsdtr in 1764 (he was a widower here too):

It tells you that he left Sogn on the 23.4, but he probably went from Bergen a few days later.I think he left Bergen on the 28.4 as Gunn also found as he's the only one with such a name and age that year.Kjellaug

Thank you to everyone who helped me find information on Nils Fedje. Unfortunate I don't speak or read Norwegian so all your help has been greatly appreciated. Now I think I can trace his route from Norway to North Dakota.
