I am the great-granddaughter of Lena Hals (Halsan)-Dempsey. Her parents, Henry Halsan and Mette Iverson-Halsan, came to the US around 1882-83 from Norway. They dropped the "an" off their name after arriving in the US. I am very interested in any info about the Hals/Halsan family. My great-grandmother, Lena, was born in the US shortly after they arrived on 8/14/1883. I would be happy to forward info about Lena and her descendants your way if you would like. Thanks in advance.
