Norway Tag --- WikiTree

Chris, I see you have an interest in Norway.

A helpful place to start is the Norway Landing Page and Norway Genealogy Resources.

Also useful is a look at patronymics and farm names at Norwegian Naming Conventions.

Good luck with your Norwegian research! Perhaps we are descended from the same region, you'll have to update me when you find out. If you need help just let me know.

Thank you WikiTree for allowing Spanish Language facility to profiles and supporting Spanish naming conventions. I just adjusted language and birth names for the Spanish /Latin American profiles I manage. I hope this isn't a problem. Everything looks so much better! ¡Gracias mil!

Yes, I intended to volunteer. I have an extensive family tree on My confidence in it varies so I'd add it piecemeal. I already know of one place where my tree coincides with another around the name Silvester in 17th century Massachusetts. I'm sure there are others.

I'm Christopher Stephen Hanson. I was born in Philadelphia in 1957. My father Stephen Hanson was born in Los Angeles in 1924. My mother Teresa Sanchez was born in Manati, Puerto Rico in 1921 or 2. My paternal grandfather Wilbur aka Jack was born 1898 in South Dakota of Norwegian (19th century arrivals) and New England stock. My p. grandmother Esther Roberts was born 1894 in Wisconsin of Welsh and English stock (19th century arrivals). My m. grandparents Miguel Sanchez and Juana Ortiz were Puerto Rican of stock that had been there for some time and other stock of more recent arrivals (19th century) from the Canary Islands, Catalonia, and Castille in roughly that order. My dad's people have been a lot easier to research than my mom's.
