I have traced my ancestors back to Norway but I cannot find where in Norway they are from and so I can't trace them back much farther. Here is the information I have so far, any help on tracking them down would be very much appreciated.
Hendrick (May go by Henry) Brandt.
Born: Sep 1 1835 in Norway
Died: Oct 9 1911 in Watertown, Middlesex, Massachusetts, USA
Immigrated about 1856
In the U.S. he married Ellen Maria Newcomb who was from Wellfleet, Massachusetts.
Father: Christian F. Brandt
Born: about 1815 (may be in Norway but Brandt is a German name)
Mother: Gisiel Halerstad
Born: about 1817 in Norway
Christian and Gisiel were probably married about 1834.
