Hi Jean!

Often the immigrants would use their former farm name in Norway as a surname when the arrived here. Mine used the farm name in the 1870 census, and Iverson in the following censuses. I have seen this quite often.

See what I wrote here as it looks like your Ragnild is mentioned: http://boards.ancestry.com/surnames.lund/587.6.2.1.1.1.2.2.1...
