I am particularly interested in finding information on Niels Olsen Brunes. I have had no "luck" in finding information on him. After many inquiries I was told that Haagina was a maid in a royal palace and Niels worked in the royal stables, (Alex was born out of wedlock) - of course I have no way of knowing if this is true or just a story. I had Y-DNA (to the 67th marker) tested on Alex's (ggrandfather) only living grandson and there has been over
one hundred 12 marker results, which mean nothing. I remain hopeful.
I am also interested in finding any living relatives in Norway of Haagine, and Peter Hansen. In the last month I have found a great granddaughter of one of Haagine's brothers in California and if times work out, I will meet her this July in California.
Thank you for your reply.
