Searching for Lars Sveinsson??? Larsen b 27 Feb 1839 in "Eidi" Norway.
The story goes Family lore has it Lars and 2 brothers came to the US to avoid the draft in Norway, about 1857. When they came to New York the went to a "camp" in upper NY and there were so many Larsons there, they changed their name to Eidi, which we think is where they came from in Norway. Not much to go on but hope you can help. Thanks, Lindy wise
p.S. my family emmigrated from Hedmark in 1913.
