Bredesen Family History

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

My name is Sammy Bredesen, I live in the United Kingdom. 

 

I have been trying to find out about my family history, and have so far found out I have ancestors in Norway. I have hit a brick wall and in need of some help. If anyone is able or willing to help me please let me know. 

 

I have so far managed to find my 2nd Great Grandfather:

Gustav Thorvald Bredesen - Born: 1883, from Grimstad Norway. He had a wife called Konstanse Elisabeth Lervik - Born 1895

With help from the Norwegian Archives, I have found out they were people who travelled? They were labelled as "omstreifere" on Jorgen's Baptism record.

   

 

They had a son called:  Jorgen J Bredesen (1917–1997) 17 Jul 1917  Grimstad, Norway

Jorgen died: 9 May 1997  Mandal, Vest-Agder, Norway

Jorgen was a sailor/ seaman. 

Jorgen had a son with Ivy Lynch (who he married in 1943 - in Swansea, Glamorgan, Wales). They had a son called Michael John Bredesen (1943–1980), this son is my fathers father (my Grandfather).

 

I have hit a brick wall with Gustav and his wife. I've not been able to find anymore out then what I have stated. 

 

If anyone can help me please let me know, as I would like to find out as much as I can!

 

Thank you

Sammy J Bredesen

Hi Mary-Ann

 

Thank you for that information, I think I might be back on track!

 

I've just read through the comments on that post (I had to use Google Translate) but I think I may have some information to be going on with!

 

Thank you

Sammy
