Hei 
Kjent p� Eidsvoll

Kan du gi GUTTORM FLYGEL gutt.flygel@c2i.net et tips?

Dette st�r bak p� bildet:
Thv_Christ_. F�dselsdato er skrevet bak p� bildet som F�dt i Eidsvol 1849 den 9 September, men navnet er utydelig. Tror det st�r Thv., mens etternavnet kan v�re Christ(ian..) eller Christ(offersen).

Hello,

My ancestors Ole HANSEN b. about 1833 Agersogn, Norway and Annie Mattea GULBRANSON b. about 1842 with their 3 children Henry Oskar (Harold) b. about 1864 and Arilon b. 1866 and Gunda b. 1869 boarded the ship "Palmerston" from Hamburg bound for New Zealand. 

 They arrived at Port Charlmers, Dunedin, 
New Zealand 28 July 1872.    
Can anyone help me with family members 
prior to departure and after.  
Any information will be gratefully accepted.

I found an old photograph of some people sitting outside by large
rocks,trees,bushes, and on the back is written:

aug. 1922....."Flaen" Grorud........
Tante Klara og Ivar, Ingrid, Anna og Conr. Hansen........Theresegt. 19

Er det noen som kjenner disse personene?

Flaen (g.nr.93, b.nr.1) var en g�rd som tidligere l� ved Trondheimsvn.
407 p� Grorud. I dag brukes navnet Flaen eller Kalbakken om dette omr�det. Jeg tror g�rden ble revet i1950-�rene. �nsker du mere
informasjon om g�rden vil jeg r�de deg til � kontakte Groruddalen

Tusen takk for hjelpen, Gunnar Hauger, Oslo

I did find the people in Theresegt 19. in the census: 1910 Theresegt 19, 1 floor stair 2 to the right.

Lovise Hansen B 24 sept 1847 Skedsmo, Widow. (was Conrad her son?)
Conrad Hansen B 19 now 1881 Kristiania Mailman unmarried.

1915
Same status exept Conrad was postpackingmaster Kristiania Postoffice.
And it looked like they rented out a room to Karen Olava Olsen Lie maid B 14 aug 1859 Oppegaard, last adress Sondregt 4.

1917
Conrad Hansen B 19-11-1881 married
Anna Hansen (born Engebrtsen) B 16-02-1883 Kristiania Housemother married moved inn 27-3 from Trondheimsvn 26. IV , 3 stair.
No Lovise, had she died, and no maid?

1922
Same as 1917, but for a child.
Ivar B 31-07-1917 Child.

In a book about postalworkers 1922 I did find Conrad on page 17, born 1818 and had worked 13 years in the postoffice.

Does this help your memory?


Engelstad Modum og Kristiansand.

Er det noen som kan hjepe henne?

I am researching the surname ENGELSTAD in Kristiansand, Norway.
The earliest record I have of my ancestors using this name is my gggrandfather, Kristofer Engelstad. He was born March 10, 1844 in Skredsviken, Modum, Norway, with the name of Kristiansen, but began using the name Engelstad at some point later in his life. It is thought that his family lived at the Engelstad farm in Modum parish at some point, and this is where the name came from.
Kristofer's parents were Christian Nilsen and Karen Dorthea Christophersd.
Kristofer Kristiansen Engelstad m. Tomine Andrea Christiansd. on Nov. 22, 1867.
They had three children: Kristian Kornelius, b. 1868, Karl Emil, b. 1871, and Johan Martin, b. 1874. Johan Martin emigrated to the U.S. in 1893, traveling under the name of Martin Engelstad.
This is the name he mostly used, and he was usually called Marty. He became a Salvation Army officer and served the S.A. until he retired, whereupon he opened a bakery in Jamestown, Chautauqua Co., NY, and continued to run it for several years. He died on Mar. 3, 1967, in Quincy, MA, where he had been living with his daughter.
There are family reports that one of his brothers also emigrated, but from what I've been able to find so far, they did not travel together. This brother reportedly became a mortician, and operated a funeral home possibly somewhere in New England. I am greatly interested in making contact with descendants of this or either of Johan Martin's brothers. Does anyone here have Kristian Kornelius or Karl Emil Engelstad in their family tree?
Also, at some point in time, in our branch of the family at least, the spelling of the name was changed to Englestad. This is even noted in the records of the Salvation Army, as it apparently changed back and forth a few times. This could have also happened with other branches of the family, as well.

Etterlysning from Australia

Some years back, I did some Qld research for one of the wife's relatives in Canada!
His name is Donald Wall who lives in Calgary Alberta Canada.

His father Leslie Leishman was born in Queensland and his father Robert Leishman was killed at Gallipoli in World War one!

His mother then married her husband's best mate from the War a Robert Wall
and her son Leslie Leishman was adopted and changed his name to Wall.
As Robert Wall was an American he took the family back to the United States after the War.

Don Wall sent me his Wall Gedcom and I have just put it into my new Brothers Keeper for
Windows and printed out a Pedigree Chart of him! I was surprised to find that on his mother's
side there were several Norwegian Ancestors!

He has done his Norwegian Research up and got his mothers side back 4 generations on the
female side and three generations on the male side.
His mother was Carmen Amunda Wick Born 17 Aug 1911 Eureka Humbolt California.

Her father was Osuf Wick Born 26 May 1888 Tvedestrand,Aust-Agder (Akershus) Norway
Married 11 Oct 1910 Eureka Humbolt California.
He married Olga Tillea Holm B:Eureka Humbotl California.
Osuf Wick's father was Lars (Wiik) Vik Born 1863 Wiik (a Farm) Norway and
married Amunda Ellingsen Born 1864 Tvedestrand,Aust- Agder, Norway.
I don't suppose that you could find the parents of the above two Ancestors Lars (Wik) Vik Born 1863
and Amunda Ellingsen his wife Born 1864 in Tvedestrand,Aust-Agder, Norway.

Etterlysning from USA.


Oscar\Oskar som kalte seg �stby i USA ble f�dt 25 nov 1888 og sa han ble f�dt i Oslo.
Det kunne bety Aker p� den tid. Han kom til USA i 1909 og reiste f�rst til Havanna, North Dakota.
Hva han brukte som etternavn i Norge er ukjent. Oskar hadde en god venn i Oslo som het Arnt Realdsen.
Arnt reiste ogs� til USA og bodde p� Havanna, ND, dit Oskar reiste n�r han f�rst kom.

For sikkerhets skyld sjekket jeg f�dte i Eidskog i 1888, men Oskar st�r ikke der -- eller i Vinger kirkebok.

Oskars mor, Thea Amundsdatter, bruke Amundsen p� sitt pass i 1920 n�r hun immigrerte.
Det kan peke p� at hun aldrig giftet seg. Jeg har n� funnet henne f�dt 13 mar 1860 p� Digerudlien i Vinger.
Hun jobbet p� en fabrikk i "Christiania", men det kan ogs� bety i Aker.
Oslo best�r av lite mer enn byens sentrum p� den tid. S�nn til Oskar har et bilde av Thea tatt foran fabrikken der hun jobbet.

Familien tror ikke at Thea ble gift med faren til Oskar, men han skulle ha tatt �stby navnet fra faren.
Kanskje Olaf �stby jeg fant i Oslo er far til Oskar -- men det kunne ogs� v�re en kar fra Vinger omr�det
eller en som ikke bodde lengre i Oslo omr�det i 1900. Eventuellt m� Oskars d�p finnes.
S�nn til Oskar reiser til Norge i mai eller juni -- og vil gjerne se stedet der Thea og Oskar og en bror til Oskar bodde f�r 1909
samt hun og andre s�nnen inntil 1920.

Hilsen, Priscilla Sorknes i Minneapolis.
