[#82436] Anyone know where Homepass is?

Recommended Posts

The o in Homepass is supposed to be the o with a / but my computer will not make that letter now. Mary Ellen

My best suggestion is Hønefoss, located in Buskerud.

By the term/ expression 'an o with an a' I understand that you mean the vowel _å_ which indeed is the letter _a_ with a minor _o_ above, which by the way also is the 29.th and last letter in the norwegian alphabet. Thus, you are asking for the exact location of 'Håmepass' here:I must however admit that I don't know where this place is, or if it is a place? So unless this is some kind of passport (a 'pass' in modern norwegian, 'passerseddel' is an older term); this could also be a slight maltranslation of the parish and village 'Hønefoss' in Buskerud county - as alredy suggested by Aase here. Furthermore, it can also be a very small and perhaps now abandoned place, like for example a cotters' farm.

Mary skriv 'o with a / ' - altså 'o med ein skråstrek' dvs Ø. (Ikkje 'with an a').

Sorry, Mary, I meant to translate my message: What is written in your question is 'o with a /' - that is 'o with a slash', and that must be Ø, not Å as suggested in (2) and (4).

Ok Aase, then I clearly misinterpreted the sign / not as the diagonal line in the letter Ø, but as a slash used to separate two different expressions or words, hence my attempt (obviously in vain) to explain the word in question. But then you enlightened me :) so now I agree with you, Aase.

Thank you so much. I think Hønefoss, located in Buskerud is the place I am looking for. I have Peter A. Peterson b. 21 April 1844 there. But I see the church records do not go back that far, so I suppose I am not going to find him. Thanks,

You should look for him in Norderhov parish!

Thank you, I checked for births there just now, but did not find him. Maybe his birth date is incorrect. Any other suggestions? Mary Ellen

Could this be Dombås (Dombaas)? Take a look at Lesja/Dovre parish in Oppland county.

Mary, by any chance do you have Peters parents names? There also several Peders in the 1843-45 Norderhov records

I do not know for sure, because there were so many with the same name. I found in the 1870 census one who I think my be him, if so his father was Peter Peterson and Mother Betsy. The best clue I have is his birth date and 'Hønepass, Norway'(as it was written on the information given to me) I looked in the Lesa/Dovre births and did not find him. These are great suggestions from all of you. Thank you so much.

What does the 'A' stand for in Peter A. Peterson?Do you know the names of his children? They might have been named after the grandparents.

Yes, that is why I thought the Peter Peterson b. abt 1810 in Norway and wife Betsy b. abt 1820 in Norway from the 1870 census may be the right parents of Peter Peterson b. 1844 in Norway and came in 1854. Peter married Mary Thompson in 1868 in Wisconsin and their children were: Annie, Betsy, Peter, Thomas, Lewis, Albert, Oscar, Carl, Herman, and Pauline. The first 4 could be names of grandparents. Thanks

Thanks, this may be him, not sure. You helped me to realize that his father was not necessarily Peter. Coming so early, (1854)Peter could have taken his father's last name. In 1880 he was in Chippewa Co., Wisconsin for sure. In 1870, there are two single men named Peter Peterson who are the right age, so this is really confusing.
