I'm still interested in the Sovde family. I don't know anything about my Sovde family in Norway. George Adrian Sovde is my 2nd cousin 1x removed. When researching immigrants from Norway, I found a "hint" that some families adopted the name of the farm they were from when arriving in the US. I don't know if that pertains to the Sovde's or not. George Adrian's grandfather was George August Sovde, a minister, and his great grandfather was Christ Sovde, who is my 2nd great grandfather. Christ (or Christian) Sovde and family lived in Michigan and Minnesota. Do you know anything about this Sovde line? Did he have a brother named Ole, who also lived in Minnesota? Do you have any information on their Norweigan relatives? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
