Thank you but this is a rare event in genealogy - looking for descendants rather than ancestors. Norwegian family would like to find American family.

The family appears in the 1865 census in Rauland on a farm called 'Storehaug under Dyrdal'. The census indicates birth parishes for each member of the family. Investigating the church records of these parishes should provide genealogical details and ancestry.

I saw the post for Kittilsen and Nirisen on the Norway List.
When I was going thru some information for my own search on Juve from Telemark, there were some baptisms at the Burke Lutheran Church in Madison WI, listed as follows:
Parents/ Aslak Kittelsen Sonderland & Aashild Oldsdatter -child Kittel (b)9/1/1874 baptised 10/18/1874.
child Berthe Gurine (b) 9/1/1974 baptised 10/18/1874.

also,Parents: Thrond Kittelsen Reindahl Slettelvedt/Ingeborg Osmundsdatter
child Signe (b)10/19/1874 -Baptized 11/10/1874

Thorbjor Nerisen/Anna Nerisen were witnesses at the following baptism:
Parents: Halvor Bjorgufsen Tveten/Aase Kristensdatter
child: Elsine (b) 1/11/1874 Baptized 2/21/1874.

Do not know if any of these are relatives for which you are looking.

Hello Ida,
I do not know if our family is related to yours yet. My family went by both Kittilsen and Traaen when they arrived in Minnesota in 1881. Last known location for my ggrandfather, Ole K KIttilsen/Traaen, was Fladal, Seljord, Telemark. I have an old letter written by his supervisor at work, saying that he had been working at lowering the lake level of Fladsjo for the past year and that he was a clever worker. He called my ggrandfather: Ole Kittilsen Odegaard. I think that possibly his mother was Margit Olson, living maybe on Vadder. Ole was born in 1856, his brother Halvor Kittilsen in 1858 and brother Kittil Kittilsen in 1864. Ole kept the Traaen name, and stated that his father was Kittil Traaen on his death cert. Also on Halvor's death cert it said, father Kittil Traaen. We think that possibly the father Kittil Traaen may have gone by Valufsin at one time. Any of this familiar? Kay Neubauer

It is my friend in Norway who is looking for this ancestor. He didn't have a home computer when I posted the message. Now he does, and I have forwarded your message to him. I hope that you have a match because he has extensive genealogical information on his ancestors.

Hello again Ida,
Thank you. I know it is a long shot, as there as so many Kittils and Kittilsens in Norway, and especially Telemark. Maybe I will get lucky!!

Ida-

I hope you're still out there! I just started looking for info on my Kittilson ancestors. My grandmother is Gertrude Anna Kittilson Lyman, daughter of Gustav Rudolf Kittilson, b. 15 March 1877 in Skien. Would you forward this information to your friend?

Thanks!
