Reference: Hans Pederson Holt

I don't know if this works but you can take a look.

I find a man aged 38 years in the 1900 US Census living in Minneapolis. His name is entered as Mans Holt, but the penmanship is terrible.

I also know of Holt's living in Hudson Wisconsin but I believe they come from western Norway.

If you want a pdf file for this entry send me a request off line.

Christie Hetland (Breiland) epost:
Date: 03.05.05 Time: 05:40:53

My great-grandparents were immigrants from Hjelmeland, Rogaland, Norway, I believe. we have postcards and photos of people with little to go on.
Grandfather's name was Nils Hetland and Grandmother's name was Karina Bjelland or Breiland. We found those names on a postcard and believe it could be one. They came to the States in 1918 to Ellis Island and settled in Central Iowa.
They sailed on the Bergensfjord. From the story my grandmother gives my great was pregnant when she boarded the ship. They later had 4 more children, but, grandfather was married twice before.
I believe he was born around 1880 and she was born around 1892 by process of subtraction from the dates they sailed. I have seen the manifest from the ship so I know dates are accurate. It would be nice to know the rest of the story when it comes to the 2 of them living in Norway. I would love to be able to tell my daughter some stories!!

Thank you for any information in advance!!

Adam Buchler epost: land: Germany

I am searching for ancestors from Hessen, Darmstadt, Germany who is related to Adam Buchler or Buechler and now Beechler surname in U.S.A. who was my g. grandfather.
Adam and his brother Michael Buchler left Germany around the years of 1850 to 1861. The sibling's mother's name was Jermma Schaeffer, Buchler. There are several Buchler's around the Rhineland area and believe them to be related. I would like to learn the name of the ship they sailed on and the port of departure from Germany to the port of entry in U. S. A. Thank you.
