Is anyone able to explain the origin of Dagfinrud...is it an actual Surname or is it the place where they lived and they just adopted that as their name? I have several ancestors by this name and am trying to trace my geneology back. I ask because my Great Great Grandfather immigrated to America in 1868 and changed the name Dagfinrud to Danner. I would like to be able to find more info about my line of Dagfinrud.
My GGF is Dagfinrud,Anders Tostensen
GGGF is Dagfinrud,Tosten Andersen (poss Kjernli?)
GGGF is Dagfinrud, Anders Finnsen
GGGGF is Dagfinrud, Finn Taraldsen
GGGGGF is Dagfinrud, Tarald Olsen
Any help would be greatly appreciated...Thank you so much
