ROBERT HANSEN New Zealand

Innlegg nr. 34 (11:48 26/12-98)
Your entry: Norge Sailing Ship "HOVDING" left Christiania (OSLO ) on 31st of May 1872 bound for Napier NEW ZEALAND with many Norwegian emmigrants with some Danish and Swedish families also. On board my Grt Grandparents Edvard HANSEN his wife Jorgine Larsdatter(daughter of Lars Jorgensen and Martha Pedersdatter..They had with them their 4 year old daughter Hanna Louise Hansen and shortly after leaving a son was born and named Christian and given the name of the ship as his second name "Hovding" Hansen.Other good family friends included VINGERS, TORKILDSENS, NEILSENS. Does anyone have records on these people of this voyage??Their families left behind?? Who was related to who??Where are the missing links?? EDVARD is said to have been born in Fredrikstad about 1840 and JORGINE in Drammen about 1849--They may have married in or near Tonsberg where Hanna was possibly born about 1868. Other childrens names may be a clue.These in order:Christian Hovding Hansen---Otto Martinius---Anna Marie---Erik----Elise Jorgine----Peter Edward------John Lewis----This family was among the pioneer settlers of the small town of Norswood in the Southern Hawkes Bay region of New Zealand. Edvard is thought to have had an older brother who was a ships captain and may have settled in Seattle about 1885 or there abouts. Any clues would be very much appreciated as I would dearly love to find my 1999 relatives in todays Norway.Kiwi Viking.

Your entry: Our American Stolpestad family originates from the Frang farm in Stange and the Stolpestad farm in Ringsaker. Looking for a few details: 1. Ship passage information for Anders Hansen (American name Andrew Stolpestad) b. 13-10-1849, Stolpestad farm, Ringsaker and his wife Taaline Larsdatter (American name Toline Frang/Toline Stolpestad) b. 09-26-1876, Frang farm, Stange.

American emigration information for Taaline Larrsdatter's sister, Helene Mathea Larsdatter b. 09-01-1829, Frang farm, Stange. Her parents were Lars Halvorsen b. 1797 and Eli Hansdatter b. 1802. 3. Any translation or meaning of the name Annar (Annar Stolpestad was the second son for Anders and Taaline and their first of three more children born in America. My son was given G-Grandfather Annar's name as his middle name - John Annar Stolpestad b. 1990. 4. Any translation or meaning of the name Taaline (Taaline Larsdatter/Taaline Frang/Toline Stolpestad). Family lore says it means twelve because she was the 12th child born. Baptism records in Stange list her as the 8th child born. My niece was given G-G-Great Grandmother Toline's name as her middle name - Laura Toline Stolpestad Baldwin b. 1995. Thank you for any assistance, Hilsen, Cary

Innlegg nr. 44 (03:04 23/09-98)
Your entry: I have been tracing my ancestors in Norway with help from some very kind people. The only one that is "lost" is my grandmother Ellen Neilson. She was born in 1857 and my grandfather was born in 1854. They came to America June 1882. My grandfather was from Ullensaker but I have no idea where my grandmother is from. They must have been married before they came. Would anyone have a book from Ullensaker that has the marriage records from probably 1880 and 1881 that might have their marriage record in it?? My grandfathers birth and baptismal records are in the Ullensaker book. He was Anton Christofferson or Christopherson or Christoffersen. I have records spelling it all different ways. Thanks for your help.

Her birthday may be incorrect. Children born in Norway are: Ole H. Nelson, born September 24, 1856, Christian H. Nelson, born July 23, 1860, Nickolos H. Nelson, born June 07, 1862, Andrew H. Nelson, born February 10, 1865 and Martin that died on the sea voyage. to America in 1867. Ole claimed to be born at Kristiana, but he was not found in the birth records there. The family emigrated to America through Quebec and are first found at Goodhue County, Minnesota, with the birth of another son, Martin, born January 8, 1868. Christened at the Hof church. Martin died April 10, 1869. The last record of the family in that location was in 1871. They are at Madison, Lac Qui Parle County, Minnesota in 1880 census. Family letters indicate there was an Andreas Nelson and wife Berthea, with children Johann and Karin, locations unknown until Andreas Nelson’s death December 30, 1913, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I believe Andreas and Hans to be brothers. Anyone connected to or with information of this family, please contact: drabchak@telusplanet.net

Your entry: Hei! Jeg har holdt på med slektsforskning i ca 1 år, og har kommet ordentlig i gang. Jeg har imidlertid et problem, som jeg faktisk lurer på om du kan hjelpe meg med. Etter det jeg kan forstå, må du være fra Holum i Ullensaker? Min farmors morfar er også fra Holum. Hans Laurits Kristoffersen f. 14.7.1851 ble født på Olstadeie, var "uegte", men foreldrene giftet seg senere. I Folketellinga i 1865, Holumengen står foreldrene som gift Kristoffer Larsen f. ??.??.1818 (var fra Holum) og Marie Jensdatter f. ??.??.1829 var fra Olstad). Barn: (Hans) Laurits født 14.7.1851, min farmors morfar Ole født 1853 Johan født 1848 Christian 1845 Marius født 1843 I all senere leting heter Hans Lauritz Kristoffersen DAHL. (vet at de byttet navn etter som de flyttet på seg). Jeg er imidlertid helt sikker på at dette er samme mannen. Han giftet seg med Marie Charlotte Eriksson (født i Sverige),og flyttet til Kristiania. Når min farmors mor ble født, (i 1877) bodde familien i Nedre Hammersborg i Kristiania, og de flyttet en del rundt i området. Hele tiden het de DAHL. Jeg har en del mer konkrete opplysninger rundt familien, men lurer på om du sånn umiddelbart kan si om du har vært borti denne familien?

Your entry: I have just discovered this site, and am heavily into my genealogy. However, I don't have much of my Bredberg line discovered yet. Here is what I know: - My grandfather was Albert A. Bredberg, 1868-1958, who was born in Sweden and died in California, USA. - Albert's parents were Par Bredberg, 1804-1901, who married Breita (Martha) Hoglund (Hartman). - Par was born in Altsjon Jamtland, Sweden. He was a Baptist minister. He had a brother, Jonas Bredberg. - Albert had a sister, Karen Bredberg, who emmigrated to Canada. He also had a brother (Name unknown). - Par had a sister, Froken (Miss) Johanna Hoglund. I will very much appreciate any "ties" which anyone can find, to my family. I will be very happy to share with you, whatever data I have.

Great information you have on here. I am looking for the family of Karoline HANSDATTER/JOHNSON-who may have lived at the Sveen farm, in the vicinity of Dokka, Norway. Karoline immigrated to the USA in 1885, and settled in Iowa. She brought at least 2 children with her. Edward(Even) Helmar Johnnesen, b. 1872 in Land. Parents were Johannes Johannesen and Karoline Hansdatter on birth record. Anna Johnsen, b. 14 May 1883 in Dokka, Norway to Karoline- but don't know if Johannes was her father. Karoline changed all their names to Johnson, after arriving in the USA. She may have had a brother, Peter Hansen, who also immigrated to the USA. Anna said she had a sister, Nettie. Having found Nettie's marriage certificate, it lists her father as Ole FURUSITH and her mother as Karoline SVEEN. Nettie married Ole BROVALD in the USA and lived in Bode, IOWA. Anna lived in Rutland, Iowa and married Chris Gregerson, moving to Fort Dodge, Iowa in 1903. Karoline was an expert seamstress and tailor. She never married in the USA and died in 1902. With all the last names, and not much information, this family has been hard to search for. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Dee

Innlegg nr. 157 (16:42 22/05-97)
Your entry: We are hoping to find more information on my husband's grandfather who came to Canada from the U.S. after emigrating from Norway possibly in the 1890s. This is what we have so far: Christian Pederson was born in Norway, probably in the 1870s, and as a young man he and a brother emigrated to the United States, where Christian met and married Carrie Fosmark. Carrie was born in North Dakota in 1884, the eldest daughter of Johannes Johanneson Fosmark (born 1853 in Bruvik, Norway) and Anna Nielsden (born 1854 in Stanghelle, Norway), who emigrated to the U.S. in 1880 and settled in Barnes County, North Dakota, between Fargo and Bismarck. It is not known when or where the two Pederson brothers parted company, but it is assumed that Christian lived in or near Barnes County, where the Fosmark family lived. The brothers were supposed to have changed their surname to Pederson from Kringlen (or similar) after arriving in the U.S. Christian and Carrie Pederson came to Canada sometime between 1912 and 1916, and first settled near the town of Asquith, Saskatchewan. Christian died in Saskatchewan in the late 1940s, and Carrie died near Radisson, Saskatchewan in 1974 at the age of 90. Many thanks to anyone who can provide further information. Barbara

Det begynte med "søskenbarntref" med ca. 50 oppmøtte og sist med ca. 120 slektsmedlemmer (både fra HELE Norge og fra USA) jeg har i de senere år hilst på mange som jeg ikke hadde peiling om at jeg var islekt med.

Your entry: Looking for relatives or anyone who might have information on my gggrandfather Anton Tollefsen b.1831 married Olina Schytte b. 1842, I believe they were from the Hamaroy(Hammero) area in Nordland. They had 11 children, the children were born at two different farms, Gurendal and Hjelseng, I believe the children went by the last name of Antonsen. My ggrandmother was Sarah Eliassen born 1891. She lived at a place called Lagmandsvik on Sagfjord. Also mentions a place called Sorgmansvik. Sarah's parents were Elias and Sophie (Blix) Eliassen. Also looking for relatives of Kristoffer Emil Danielsen from Narvik, Kristoffer passed away in 1988. Kristoffer's mother Lenora (Leonora)would be my ggrandfather Waldemar Tollefsen's sister.

Your entry: I wrote here about a month ago, and since have had several people reply to me. I now believe that I've located the birthplaces of both of my grandparents. Now I'm hoping that I can connect with someone from Nordoyvagen on the island of Donna or , someone from Leirfjord particularly the Brejland farm. Both are in Nordland. I'm so very thankful to everyone who has helped me. My grandparents came to America in 1903 and 1904 , first to Stoughton, Wisconsin and then up to Canada on the north shore of Lake Superior. The countryside here is very similar to that about Oslo. We even have many of the same trees, and other plants. Perhaps that is why so many Scandinavian people have settled here. I'm hoping that perhaps one of my distant relatives is on the Net, and we can compare notes. Thanks so much ! Annmargaret ( Breiland) Engberg mengberg@baynet.net

Your entry: My ALBERTSEN family came from Rise Parish, Svendborg, DK (on the island of Ærø). Hans Jorgen ALBERTSEN (my g-grandfather) and his brother Hans Christensen ALBERTSEN sailed from Hamburg on the barque Wiedemann, arriving in Sydney in 1856. From there, they went to the Peel River Diggings, near Tamworth in NSW. An Echo Friend on the Fidonet BBS has told me he found decendants of an older brother, Albert ALBERTSEN (b. 1824), still living on Ærø. He has since fallen into a black hole, so I would love to find out if it is true. The parents were Rasmus Hansen ALBERTSEN (b. 1876) and Johanne ALBERTSDATTER (b.1798). He was originally a farmer, turned smallholder and (I believe) carpenter. Other members of the family migrated to the U.S. Please contact me if you can help. I am studying Danish, and would love to find those Danish rellies.

Han døde i Aalborg, Danmark 3. Jan. 1815 og blev begraven den 10. Jan 1815. Han var gift med en Norsk jente muligvis fra Oslo (Kristiansstad) hun hed: Allette Christenze Christensdatter og er født 1785. Hun døde 2. Maj 1846 i Svenstrup lidt syd for Aalborg i Danmark efter at have været gift 2 gange. Anden gang med Frederik Halvorsen som også var norsk styrmand, men bosiddende i Aalborg. I første ægteskab fik Hans og Allette følgende børn: Ingeborg Marie Aslachsen, født 4. sept. 1813 i Aalborg død 23. okt. 1873 i Svenstrup. Maren Aslachsen, født 1814 Halvor Hansen Frederiksen, døbt 12. sept. 1815 i Aalborg Budolfi kirke. Blandt fadderne til børnene er: Skipper Larsen og G. Gelorni i Aalborg samt flere skippere fra Norge. De må derfor et eller andet sted i Norge være kendte. Hjælp søges og kontakt ønskes. Kan du måske hjælpe? Venlig hilsen Bjørn Skinnerup medlem af DIS-Danmark

Your entry: I am looking for relatives in Denmark. My Great Grandfather was Hans Peter Gregerson, born nov.1,1845 in Horsens, Denmark. His father was Chris Gregerson. He married Anna Elizabeth Sorenson, born July 1849 in Horsens, Denmark. They had 5 children-Johanna,born 1875 in Denmark, Mary Emma, born Jan. 29,1878,Denmark-Chris Hans, born Feb.16,1880 in Copenhagan, (he is my Grandfather)-Sena, born May 28,1883 in USA and Anna, born April 20, 1887, USA. The family immigrated to America in 1882 and settled in Fort Dodge, Iowa. Hans Peter Gregerson and Anna Elizabeth Sorenson were married in Denmark in 1872., probably in Horsens or Copenhagan area. They left parents and possibly brothers and sisters in Norway. If anyone has any information on this family, I would appreciate hearing anything anyone can tell me. Thank you, Deloris Naughton

Your entry: I am enjoying researching your pages. I am trying to locate any relatives in Dokka or Oslo Norway areas who may have information about my Great Grandmother, Caroline Johnson, who immigrated to USA in 1885. She settled in the state of Iowa. She brought 3 children with her, Edward Helmer Johnson, born approximatly in 1872-73, and died Oct.2, 1958 in Haney, Canada. Nettie, born May 8, 1875 in Dokka, Norway and died Jan. 18,1968 in Bode, Iowa USA, and Anna (Annie) born May 14, 1883 in Dokka, Norway and died Aug. 2, 1967 in Webster City Iowa USA. Caroline was a seamstress-there has never been any mention of her husband, I don't believe one came with her from Norway. She died in 1902 at Humboldt, Iowa USA. Caroline may have had a sister Minnie, who also immigrated to USA, Omaha, Nebraska area. Annie is my Grandmother and was married to Chris Gregerson. Perhaps their name was Johnsdatter while in Norway. I would appreciate any help anyone can give me on this family before they left Norway. Thank you very much. Deloris Naughton

Ernestine had been disinherited by a cruel stepfather She was a cousin to the Queen of Sweden, 
and her family was very wealthy. Her natual father died quite young, and her stepfather was able to gain control 
of the family money. The reason she was disinherited was she had fallen in love with John Johnson, a commoner 
with a small daughter. John was anxious to come to America. John and Ernestine eloped and settled in 
Omaha Nebraska. There they had 3 more daughters. Any infomation on this story would be very helpful.

Your entry: Jeg bor i Arendal, tlf. 37016346 (priv.) 37021147 (arb.) Driver en del med slektsgransking. 
Er nettopp blitt bruker av Internett, så jeg kan verken det eller e-post noe særlig. Men jeg "surfet" litt som en test
i går og gikk inn på slektsgransking og dine etterlysninger. Fant to som de lette etter her i distriktet, 
Lars Vik og Amunda Ellingsen. Jeg har nå funnet dem og vet en del om særlig henne. Men hennes slekt kom 
flyttende hit fra andre steder. Har en kopi av en bok fra Tvedestrand som omtaler hennes foreldre. 
Men fødselsårene deres er feil. Lars Osufsen Vig er født i 1853 og Amunda Johanne Ellingsen er f. 9/2 og 
dpt. 14/3 1858! Hennes foreldre er: Kjøpmann (og lærer) Torje Ellingsen f. i Torp (hvor nå det måtte være og 
Caroline f. i Sogndal (i Sogn, trolig) i 1820. T.E. døde 1897, C.E. 1906 i Tvedestrand. Osuf Larsen Vig ble 
ganske riktig født i Tvedestrand 26/5 1888 (dpt. 24.6.s.å.) Faddere: Karoline Ellingsen, Teresie Raakind, 
Torje Ellingsen, Johan Raakind og barnets fader. Jeg vet ikke hvor styrmand Lars Osufsen Vig var født, 
men han kan være fra Fjære/Grimstad-området. Der har de Vig-navn. Han er ikke født i Holt/Tvedestrand der 
året som er oppgitt når de døper Osuf. Dette var en liten smakebit. Bare ring om du ønsker det. 
Så langt er opplysningene til fri bruk. Beste hilsen Bjørn Davidsen, Arendal.

Innlegg nr. 312 (21:08 09/06-96)
Your entry: My great great great grandfather, John Karpinen, of Finland, served in the Russian army. 
After his hitch was up, he moved to Sweden. After learning of an impending war, he changed his name to 
Johansson so he wouldn't have to serve. It is believed that he had a family in Sweden. In 1891, he came to the 
USA with his three sons and settled in Biwabik, Minnesota. His name was changed to Johnson. 
His oldest son was named Henry and was born in Oulu, Finland on Dec. 5, 1888. Henry's wife, Hilda Mohala, 
was also born in Oulu on Apr. 1, 1884. How can I find relatives in Finland and Sweden?

Tom was born 14 April 1851 and Gunhild was born 31 May 1866. Any assistance would be very greatly appreciated. 
I am also searching for relatives named Otteson who came from Markabygd, Nord Trondelag. My grandmother,
