I do not think you got my other message. I was looking for anything to do with my ancestry and found your messages on Knutsdatter and Tostensen, so I took a chance. I was hoping that the "T" for Tostensen may perhaps shed some light. Perhaps the "T" in Tostensen stands for the middle initial in my g grandmothers name Anne "T" Gravaas.
There are also some pictures in the back of the book. They are wonderful pictures from the late 1800's. There is one marked Anne T. Gravaas, a young women with four older women. I would give anything to know who those people are.
Is this all impossible....a goose chase as you mentioned?
