Need a little help with Surnames:
I have a Josepha Johnson that on her birth certificate her mother is Maria Christoferson and the death Certificate say Wigdahl. She went by Josie Hagen but I see the same birth date on records of death, birth, social security but I see both names used Johnson and Hagen along with mother maiden names of Christoferson and Wigdahl.
I see this also with names on the other side of the line. I have a Johan Larsen Kværnstuen where half the children used Johnson and the other used Kvaerstuen.
I'm so very confused! Any help?
