Patricia Lovro

Recommended Posts

My family immigrated to the US in the late 1800s from Norway... Our last name is Lovro. But, that may not have been our original last name. Our last name maybe the name of the farm my ancestors came from. Need help researching to find ancestors. Thank you very much!!

The parents Jacob and Gertrud seem to have remained in Norway. But Ellef, his wife and two children did emigrate to South Dakota in 1897.
