Hi Vivi - Yes, thank you. I thought the last name may have been Thykier, but in researching the name I found the spelling to be Danish. So I sort of disregarded my initial conclusion. But in doing more research I see that Norway and Denmark have very close ties. I believe Norway was in union with Denmark from 1537 to 1814? That would correspond to Petra's father's birth I think?
Thank you so much. I have learned so much since joining ancestry. I appreciated you helping adding to my knowledge!
