I have recently discovered a link to the Barstad and Skaurde families from Sogn, Norway. My ancestor Wetle Barstad was born in 1824 in Sogn (exact location unknown), and the family left for Wisconsin in America in 1832. Their daughter Anna was born in Madison,Wisconson in 1857. Wetle married Oslo Skaurde - born about 1835 in Sogn, her family coming to America by sailboat in 1855. They were married in Wisconsin, moving to Albert Lea, Minnesota in 1866, then on to Grafton North Dakota and finally Hofflund, North Dakota in 1885.
I am interested in any information about the Barstad or Skaurde families, or about Sogn, Norway. I need some help locating where in Sogn my ancestors were from, so I can
hunt for more specific information. Thanks.
