Does anyone know about the Karhoff family in Skien in Telemark Norway? They were originally Dutch, I think, probably in the timber industry. This is going back to the end of the 1600s and right through the 1700s. I am interested in Wellum/Willum Karhoff who married my ancestor, Karen Trinepol, sometimes spelt Trinnepol.
The Trinepol family came from Horne in the Netherlands originally - I'd like to find out more about that line of the family but don't know how to go about searching for ancestors in Holland. Any tips?!
