I do not know much about Edward/ Edvard O Berven ??

I believe he was born abt 1885- he put on his 1922 border crossing record he was from Ortenso ?? or Ostense ?? Istense?? Hardanger Norway - Hard to make out:( They were living in Orr Minnesota prior to this crossing

Yes, he must have married Emma Johnson (Lundberg) after 1918- as her previous husband William Griffin died October 1918 in WW1.

Looks like Emma and Edward lived in Annaheim Saskatchewan then went to the USA due to Emma's poor health about May 1920.

I am not exact sure if Torvold and Kristian were brothers but the both came from Norway to the same area of Saskatchewan and are born about the same time.. I just found out about Edward Berven yesterday so havent been able to check much yet.

There are alot of Berven's in the USA so I thought If I could find out who Edward's parents were then I can search in the USA records for other siblings or parents.

I think that his full name was Edward Olesen (or Olsen) Berven. It appears he may have arrived at New York in March 1905 ???

I do think it is Edward not Edvind - (Nina)

Sorry to be so vague:(
