Surnames: Rudi
we have now found that Rudi comes from the farm in Vang Valdres (Oppland) and it seems many families were part of this farm. It is not apparent why our great grandfather (Ole) took the name of the farm when he migrated to the U.S., as it appears many kept their given names while some took the name of the farm. Wondering if anyone has insight on this farm (which I understand was - in Norwegian - spelled Roe - the o with a diagonal line through it), who lived there, how it was managed / owned, if it still exists, and how you track true blood ancestors in this type of circumstance.
Another point - Ole was the son of Nels Olson (Rude) and Anne Fenkels and he was born January 14, 1864 and emigrated through Saulte St. Marie in May of 1889.
