Project: Norway/Participants

Categories: Norway Project


Beside your name below, please keep track of what you're currently working on for this project. This is both for your own reference, and to aid collaboration amongst the project participants. If you are going to be temporarily inactive in the project (eg. on vacation), please note that here. Thanks!

  • Lena Svensson - My own ancestors, the kings and queens of Sweden (hand in hand with the EuroAristo Project), and categories for Sweden (hand in hand with the Categorization Project).
  • Doug Straiton - My own interests are in the Kingdom of the Isles and the Viking Period. Any early years history of interaction between Scandinavia and the British Isles. I am also a lead on the United Kingdom and European Aristocrats project for coordination with those projects.
  • Jarl Mosand - My interests are working with my ancestors and working with Norwegian sources in general. Norway is very well documented to around 1700, through church books, local historians (bygdebøker etc) and the like. My interest is to implement this into Wikitree.
  • Jennifer Gage- My family comes from Hadeland Norway. I have searched hundreds of parish records to locate my ancestors as we were never told what part of Norway they were from. Finally found the correct area. Each area of Norway has its own Lag (mine is Hadeland Lag) and they also have a lot of documentation on the people from their area. When can prove descendency to a certain lag, amd jpin, will have access to so much.
  • Bob Hvitfeldt - Many, many Norwegian Huitfeldts already in Wikitree. I'd like to work on attaching Didital Arkiv docs, and add categories. I'm also in the Sweden Project and Categorization Project. I've added some sources to Counties that didn't have much (31 Oct 16)).
  • Marsha Magee - I am currently working on adding all my direct Norwegian ancestors onto wikitree.
  • Jamie Nelson - I'm focusing on my own ancestors and cousins from Bergen and related families.
  • John Buck, Jr. - My Norwegian line begins with my gg grandfather's birth on Svimbøl farm in Tinn/Atrå County, Telemark. He migrated to the Sand/Suldal area in Rogaland where he married. In 1814 he immigrated, with his wife and three sons, to Juneau County, Wisconsin in 1857. They evidently came through Quebec, Canada, though I know of no record for their entrance.
  • Lynda Crackett - I am English and have lived in Norway for 30 years. Curious about a couple of collateral lines that are Norwegian and also about my Scandinavian DNA matches who may possibly be the result of North Sea maritime activities since I have several seafaring lines in NE England.
  • Craig Albrechtson - My paternal grandfather was of 100% Norwegian ancestry, with his family from south West Wisconsin. I've been slowly building up a tree for my Norwegian ancestors in wikitree. Most of my Norwegian ancestors come from, Telemark, Sogn Og Fjordane, Oppland and Hedmark.
  • Kristi (Moseson) Pagano- All of my great-grandparents immigrated to the United States in the mid to late 1800s, mainly to South Dakota and Minnesota. My Norwegian ancesters come from Norfjord, the Stavanger area, Luster, and other areas I have not yet identified. I am currently working on my own family tree and learning how to research Norwegian records.
  • R. Greenup (Reba) My maternal great-grandparents came from Mo i Rana, Sogn og Fjordane, and another yet-to-be discovered place in Norway. They immigrated to the US in the late 1800s, initially to the Minnesota area. I am trying to add to my family tree and learning to interpret Norwegian records.
  • Amanda Frank - My maternal great-grandfather's parents were both from Norway though they married in Wisconsin. I have a large ancestor list made for me by a relative connected to his mother. I may need help entering the names correctly.
  • Ray Niekamp - My maternal grandfather's father was born in Cristiana. His father might have spelled the last name differently (Olson instead of Olsen), and might have been born in Sweden. Looking forward to unraveling this knot.
  • Steve McGillivray - I can currently trace my Norwegian ancestry through my paternal 2x great-grandfather who emigrated from Gol, Norway and settled in the Mitchell/Worth county area of northern Iowa. I recently connected with a distant cousin on ancestry who's work may let me add 14 more generations to that line, going back to 1275.
  • Patricia Roche Many of my Norse ancestors where in the Sor Trondelag area and so know it best. But glad to work on finding sources, etc. for any profiles in need of some TLC
  • Jan Frederik Anker Solem I live in Norway, and have about 60% Norwegian ancestry (the rest being Swedish, German, and Danish). Currently working mostly on the Stoppenbrink and Anker families.
