Hi,

After having a little rest from researching, I am returning to find out more about my Norweigan Ancestry.  I would like to find Thore Larssen Bruland.  From the information I have found via a UK ancestry website, I think he was born in 1808.  He was possibly baptised in 1818 in Borsa, Sor-Trondelag.  His wife was called Judite Jacobsdatter.  I would like to find some census details or birth records/registers that would name his parents. I want to check if it is correct that Lars Olsen is, in fact his father, because the Lars Olsen I found was from Denmark but I haven't seen any written evidence.  I also have two names for his mother - Kirsten Andersdr and Kirsten Thoresdr.

 

I have done some simple searches, but nothing is coming up so I just don't understand how to use them.  Please help!

 

Thank you kind people!

 

Katie

Hello.

 

It is better to start with the last verified person. A ‘parent search’ in FamilySearch with these names found these children:

 

https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?father_givenname=Thore&father_surname=Larsen&mother_givenname=Judith&mother_surname=Jacobsdtr&record_country=Norway&count=20&offset=0

 

Are one of them your ancestor?

Thank you, this is great.  I am so confused with the surnames.  I have known Thore Larssen Bruland but can't make out the other name attached to him on this.  Possible Holtre??  I've not seen that before.

Interesting!  I think if this is the case, then perhaps I have the wrong Lars Olsen on my tree...

Would this be used as a name as well?  These names are so confusing. Fascinating though!  Thank you!

I've added Lars' new name to my tree and it keeps giving me details for Lars Olsen from Denmark with a wife called Kirsten.  Can't find a trace of Synneve...? : (

It’s not a surname - it is their address. Holze is most likely Holsen.

I have used google translate for this.  Am I right that Lars was born in 1771 and baptised or married in 1797??  Died in 1847 in the large land race! : )

I don’t know when Lars was born. This is a description of Synnøve’s family, so it is her birth that is said to be in 1771. In 1801 she is unmarried, so I think marriage year must be later than 1797.
