Hi Vivi, thank you for your very useful informations. About spelling Lange - Langen, as you can se here http://digitalarkivet.arkivverket.no/ft/person/pf01038415000...
regarding Folketelling 1865 for 2030P Sør-Varanger prestegjeld, Allette and her brother Christian spelled Langen, during that time and even later on. Perhaps Lange is a wrong hearing from the beginning?
Allette was 14 years old and her status was "Pleiedatter". What is that status realy mean? In Sweden we have a word "fosterdotter" (eng Foster Daughter), which means that the kid was placed in a family via comunitiy action. Is that the same as "Pleiedatter"?
