Is there anyone who has common ancestors with me and can share information about my forefathers?I have had great success in tracing my ancestors in Norway. They came from Lier in Buskerud. I have found them in the Frogner and Tranbye parishes.The earliest record I have found is the marriage of Torsten Gulbrandsen to Else Nilsdtr on 6-4-1780 in Lier.Torsten was probably a farmer. The census lists him as living on a farm with his family in the parish of Frogner in Lier.According to the 1801 census for Norway, Torsten was born 1745 and Else born 1751.Else Nilsdtr was baptised in Lier on 24-6-1752. Her father was Niels Borgersen.Torsten and Else had 3 children:1)Gulbrand TORSTENSEN. *Born 1781 in Lier. Baptised 25-3-1781.2)Nils TORSTENSEN. *Born 1785 in Lier. Baptised 28-8-1785 in Frogner parish. *Married Ingeborg Christensdtr around 1810 probably in Lier.Ingeborg Christensdtr was born on 23-12-1788 in Tranby, Lier and baptised on 26-12-1788. Her parents were Christen Olsen and Ragne Bjørnsdtr. Christen Olsen married Ragne Bjørnsdtr on 12-7-1788 in Lier. I found record of 3 other children born to them: Ole b.1794, Ellen b.1795 & Bernt b.1799.3)Ellen TORSTENSEN. *Born 1789 in Lier.Nils Torstensen and Ingeborg Christensdtr had one child:1)Nils NILSEN. Born 20-11-1811 in Lier, Tranbye parish.Nils NILSEN. Married 7-3-1847-Anne Christopherdtr in Lier.Anne Christopherdtr was born c1824 in Lier. The marriage record says her father’s name was Christopher Hansen.Nils Nilsen and Anne Christopherdtr had 8 children:1)Petronelle NILSDTR Baptised 23-1-1848 in Lier. 2)Marte NILSDTR Baptised 13-10-1850 in Lier. 3)Carl NILSEN.
