I noticed your message re.steinkjar in trondelag etal.
I have a Johann Mikael Steinkjar at confirmation in1856, tied into Sem farm. Became Michael Steensing because of change in farm. After Emmigration to US in 1866 became Schjeflo because he also lived on Schjeflo farm in Trondelag.
Does this make sense and can you point me right direction.
