Could someone please help find documentation for Jörgen Halvorsen of Rømskog i Rødenes.

+3 votes
Could someone please help me to link database or other records and edit the profile for Jörgen (Halvorsen-511).

Jörgen is a son of Halvor Olsen (bap. 25 Aug 1776 Trannem Rømskog i Rødenes), who married 2 Jan 1800 at Rodenes to Anne Larsdatter ( b. Feb 1778 Sundserud Bunes). In 1801, they resided at Hogenes, Rømskog i Rødenes, Østfold, Norge.

Jörgen Halvorsen, son of Halvor Olsen and Anne Larsdatter; Jörgen was baptized 18 May 1800 in Sundserud Bunes, Rømskog i Rødenes, Østfold, Norge.

Jörgen is the father of Karen/Karin Sophia Jörgensdatter (b. 8 Aug 1828 Sundserud Bunes Romskoug Rødenes Østfold Norway, bap. 16 Aug 1828 Sundserud Rødenes). Her birth-baptismal record is scanned and posted, but the location of this record is not recorded or linked. This baptismal record indicates that Karen's mother is Ingeborg Thorsdatter.  Ingeborg was baptized 18 Oct 1801 at Tukken Rømskog i Rødenes, Østfold, Norge. However, in 1828, when Karen was born, Jörgen was not married to Ingeborg. Jörgen did marry in 1830, but to another woman, Martha Rasmusdtr.

In 1865, Jörgen resided at Wenemoen. I do not know when or where Jörgen died or is buried.

More information about Jörgen Halvorson and Ingeborg and their ancestry can be provided from my records via email.

A hearty thank-you to whoever helps!

I'm a little unsure about Norwegian documentation in general, but the .pdf you cite, on page 130, concerns an agreement made in 1888 between a Halvor Jörgensen, who gives control of his property Kubbemoen at Trandem, to his son Jörgen Halvorsen.  It's unlikely that these are the same chaps that you have in your line, but highly possible: given the names and location, that they're perhaps son- and grandson of the people you treat.  Your Jörgen would have been born around 1800 I guess, and could have had a son alive in 1888 called Halvor Jörgensen.

For the geography, do a search on Google maps to reassure yourself that there's only one Trandem/Trannem, and one Venemoen in Norway.  If you can't find traces of more of them, then it's highly probable (but not 100% certain - some few farm names from days gone by may have been lost or changed name/spelling over time) that these are the very same locations.

Without documentation connecting your currently known line to earlier people in the region, it's impossible to say if the people on p. 144 are relevant to your family history.  Assuming, however, that your ancestors were present in the same geographical area, then whatever events happened there historically would have impacted them.

WikiTree has a volunteers page for those that offer to help with translations.  Given the volume of text concerned here (I can help with short paragraphs, but not whole pages) it may be possible to contact someone from that list, which is here:
