The Norwegian law on adoption from 1917 did not close the information. It was not before the change in 1935 that 'strong' adoption were introduced in Norway. Strong adoption ment that information about the bilological parents were hidden.So I would surprised if the 1921 info is unavailable!

She was born in Olso in the Women's clinic May 11, 1921. She is just listed as 'girl', her real parents are Paula Kristine Bergby and Waledamar Pedersen. Baptized in Dec 1921 in Tveit with adopted parents Ole and Matilde Thorkildsen. Came to the US in October of 1922. Thank you.

Her biological parents were not married at the time of her birth. Her mother was 16 and her father 20. Towns listed for them were Rakkastad and Sarpsborg. The town listed for the adopted parents says Koestol. My grandmother always talked of being from Kristiansand. I would like to find out about the relationship between the 2 families or any other details about the adoption. How did Olaf Thorkildsen and his wife Matilde come to be adoptive parents? I would think they would have some connection to the biological parents. Thanks again for your time.

In 1900 we find Olaf Thorkildsen b. 1890 at Kostøl in Tveit. This is now listed under Kristiansand

Thanks for the info on Olaf and the link to ancestry. I put up the link on ancestry to find out I had the wrong Waldemar Pedersen, so sorry that should be removed. I really want to find out more on the biological parents. Cannot find Paula Kristine Bergby's death record or marriage to R. Olsen (they later divorced) etc. Have contacted Waledmar's daughter thru mail. Best Regards
