Emigrating Norwegians

Slektsforskning // Genealogy

Leave a comment

Jeg har en stor slekt i USA, og i hovedsak i California, noe som også er en av grunnene til at vi velger og slå oss ned i LA. Jeg har en viss idé om hvordan vi er relatert, men det er en del hull. Jeg har veldig lyst til å finne ut mer om dette og vet at de er store på slektsforskning i USA. Det er noe jeg har lyst til å prøve meg litt på hvis jeg får tid etter jeg har flyttet. Jeg vet for eksempel ikke hvem det var som utvandret fra Norge, så det er vel det første jeg må finne ut. Jeg har hele tiden trodd at det kun var på min mors side, men for noen uker siden nevnte pappa at han også har slekt i USA, men at han ikke vet noen ting om de. Så det er bare å sette i gang å grave etter spor!

I have a lot of relatives in the US and especially in California, and that’s one of the biggest reasons for us to settle in LA. I have an idea about how we are related, but there’s a lot of holes. I want to find out more about this and know they are big on genealogy in the US and it’s something I want to try if I get the time. I don’t even know exactly who it was that emigrated from Norway in the first place, so that’s probably the first thing I need to find out. And I’ve always believed that it was just on my mothers side someone had emigrated, but a few weeks ago my dad told me he had relatives over there as well. Unfortunately he knows absolutely nothing about them, not even a name. Well, I guess I just have to start digging for clues!

Min amerikanske familie, ihvertfall noen av dem, og oss // My family in the US, or at least some of them, and us.

I’m a Norwegian girl who is leaving the cold, icy north together with my husband to find out what’s happening on the other side of the world, more specifically Los Angeles.
