My maiden name is Vigdis E. Klemetsen, and my parents were Rolf and Ragnhild. My brother Rolf Gunnar Klemetsen, born 3rd May 1940 died 2 years ago. I am married to Jan Alexander L'Orsa (1939) and we have 2 children, Marianne (1970) and Jacob Alexander (1971).
My brother married Redun Helle from Stavnger and they had 2 boys, Rolf Peder (1969) and Tomas (1971). There are now 10 people in Norway with our family name. There are other families with the same name, but they are not our relatives.
I will be most interested in whatever you have of information about a part of my family that is unknown to me.
Nils Kristoffersen (30.7.1909) was my fathers uncle. Nils had a asister Marta, whom we often visited when I was a child. My brother maintained the contact with that part of the family until they died. Nils worked all his life at Gaustad Mental Hospital in Oslo as caretaker.
Gunda Karoline Klemetsen (26.4.1895) was my fathers aunt, who lived unmarried with my mothers father for many years. He died before the war. The house in Grimstad was his. His name was Reinhardt Kornbreck. His son, also name Reinhardt Kornbreck, emigrated to upstate NY and lived there for the rest of his life. I visited his family many times when I was young. My paretns met because of the coincident with their two uncle/aunt relation. I know nothing about Klemetsen ancestors in the USA.
My grandmother Ragnhild Alfsdatter Kristiansen Sandum, was a illegitimate child and grew up in care of medical doctor family name Bure in Modum.

Jan og Vigdis,

Jeg var klassekamerat av Jan of Rolf Gunnar "Guffen" paa Fagerborg og gikk ut i 1960.
Rolf og jeg var veldig gode vanner men etter jeg reiste til Sverige for aa studere og siden til USA mistet vi kontakten...Jeg saa Rolf Gunnar siste gang ca 1980 paa Holmenkollrennet...da motte han opp med Marrit.

Jeg vet ikke noe om Klemetsen familien men tok denne anledning til en sen men dyp folt kondolanse,,jeg er for tiden paa oppdrag i Asia, og for en stund siden saa jeg paa google at vaar felles venn Gunnar Garnes var ogsaa doed.
Dette tar meg tilbake til vaare bekymringsfrie tider paa Fagerborg, baade foer, under og etter russetida.

Mine kamerater kaldte meg Calle.....og naa har mine stuper venner fra Norge invitert paa et 5o aars treff i Trondheim i Juni...mitt foerste besoek i Gamlelandet paa over 10 aar

Jeg hilser til dere alle fra Cambodia
