My interests

My interest in genealogy started with an interest in DNA. I took a National Geographic Genealogy test. I became interested in the haplogroups I was assigned to and took several tests at FTDNA. I became curious if I could link any of this to my family tree. It has just become an ongoing project.


  • I am born in Trondheim Norway in 1960. This is where my father is from.
  • My family moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota when I was 6 weeks old. This is where my mother is from.
  • We moved back to Trondheim, Norway in 1971.
  • I live now on the island Frøya. This is were my father's mother was from.

DNA Tested
Jarl Mosand's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Jarl or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
  • Jarl Mosand: Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 67 markers, haplogroup R-S7759, FTDNA kit #N144333
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Jarl Mosand: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup V, FTDNA kit #N144333
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Jarl:

Hi Jarl,

I've just posted a Week 1 Greeters message to the profile of Jørgen Skjånes. All of his welcoming messages have been in English and he has made almost no contributions. Would you consider posting a welcome message to him in Norwegian?

I have just left a follow up greeting message on the profile of Arnfinn Bjørnøy, a recent volunteer to WikiTree who I think is Norwegian.

Would you have time to welcome them and see if they need any help? If they do, we can get them connected with a Mentor.

I'd really appreciate it.

Jarl, one last comment and I'll stop cluttering up your page. I really like how your references and source notes look and work (and I'm sure mine are supposed to look that way). I'm trying to learn how to do that! And thank you for all the breakthroughs you've given me! Now if I can learn to document them properly.

I can't thank you enough for the help you have been giving me. Apart from the actual links to my relatives, it is unbelievably useful to get the general tips you are providing about the Norwegian historical habits and records -- such as the types of records that can be found and the meanings of the words in the databases, You provided: " Documents followed by the "Søk" button are searchable. The "bla" button is to see the scanned document."

You listed so many other tips that are not only extremely helpful to me, but I'll bet would be useful to anyone searching for Scandinavian relatives and are floundering (like me).

Your generous sharing of your time and knowledge is greatly appreciated!

Thank you, Jarl! Your comment on my page fits with what little I know about Peder Christopherssen (I'm borrowing your spelling since it's likely to be more accurate). I'm so excited to follow up. I just remembered that "Mo i Rana" fit into my grandfather's genealogy (just things I heard -- but can't document), along with Øverdahl (or is it Øverdal)? Thank you so much for reaching out! I'm assuming Mo is somehow connected to "Mo i Rana".

Hi Jarl,

Thanks for including more detail on Jakob Wilhelm Dass. The Dass family has been studied extensively for many decades so there is a lot of available information. You might wish to check my tree on Myheritage for additional info. [1] Personally I think it would be important to investigate further the roots of Petter Dass in Scotland (the family Don Dass or Dundas)

Hi Jarl,

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.

Hi Jarl,

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! This certification requires participation in a project related to the profiles you wish to edit. Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Also, check out our Volunteer Hub to see our projects that really need new members!

Let me know! I can help you figure out if there's a project and introduce you to the project leaders. Welcome aboard!
