Wow! I am so glad you commented on my post! What a wealth of information I have been trying to figure out. I am new at this and the Norway naming convention is somewhat confusing as back in those days they just changed their names if they moved to another farm (at least I was told that.)
I do have a typed family tree for my husband's family (Elshaug) however I do wonder of it's complete accuracy and I have been unable to do much research not understanding the Norwegian way much at all if any.
I will say that there are lots of names in this tree I have that you list in your message. One particular is Fosseide. That is how it is spelt on the tree.
I am just really greatful for your assistance and knowledge! Truly.
Is your family from Norway? Is that why you know so much? Curious is all :)
