[#71858] Jens/Johan Lauritz Jørgensen Skåre

Recommended Posts

Guest Patricia Carlsen Mikkelsen

As you may have seen, I was looking for the death records for Jørgen Johnsen Skaar & Berthe Arnesdtr Bergstad. I got confused about which farm they were from, because Jørgen was born at Skaar in Nedstryn. But in the 1900 census, he & Bertha are living at Skaare in Opstryn. I made a bad assumption, based on the fact that Jørgen was born in Nedstryn, that they still lived there. Obviously, I was wrong. So, after much confusion, I think I've got that part right. Now, I am looking for their son. But again, things are not so clear. One thing is his name -- is it Jens or Johan?Here is his baptism as Jens Lauritz Jørgensen Bergstad (Stryn Ministerialbok): [url="http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:kb_read?idx_kildeid=2003&idx_id=2003&uid=ny&idx_side=-281>LenkeHere is his baptism as Johan Lauritz Jørgensen Bergstad (Oppstryn Klokkerbok): LenkeAnd here is his confirmation -- as Johan Lauritz Jørgensen Skaare: LenkeI couldn't find him in 1900 Census for Norway, as Jens or Johan.I found this emigration record for Jens Jørgensen Skaare (b 1874), on 25 April 1892:

Thank you Rune!It makes sense that he would be called Johan and not Jens, since his father was Jørgen Johnsen. But I thought it was odd that the kirkebøker have two different names for him. I see in the Oppstryn Ministerialbok that he migrated to Christiania in October 1894. I looked here before, but I must have looked only for Jens.Again, thank you for responding! You solved up a mystery!mvh Patti
