I sent her all this a couple of days ago and the actual census records and a living Skjei in Minnesota. The hubby has Skjei in his family from Trøndelag. You forgot to tell her there is a wonderful Trøndelag mail list online also at:http://www.rootsweb.com/~wgnorway/tronder-list.htm
There are lots of people from all around the world who are related to Skjei/Skei on the list.
