Surnames: Erhard, Mays, Miller
Looking for info regarding Neils Iversen, Knight--adopted the name Rosenkrans when given a "wreath of roses by the Pope" in 1125. This family believed to have originated in Norway, but branched out to Denmark, Holland and Switzerland. Would like to be able to trace Neils Iversen Rosenkrans to the Rosenkrans' that later came to America. Am also specifically looking for the direct ancestry of Alzada Rosenkrans who married James Ralph Miller (both believed to have been from either Pennsylvania or New York, USA) and had a farm in the Clearfield County area of Pennsylvania. Anyone with any info regarding this (these) families, please don't hesitate to write. Thanks in advance for your assistance...

I had a response from my post of these names to check your site out as your Rosenkrans is rumored to be connected with Lief Erickson. My ancestry goes back to Lief Erickson but I am not sure about how or when. My Herrick settled in Beverly, Mass. USA. The other names are from Leicester in England. I am descended from the Herrick line, my Mother was a Herrick. I have gone back to English ancestry and am now looking further back.
Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Surnames: Egeland, Tobiassen, Gundersdatter, Gundersen, Borufsdatter, Andaersdatter, Gabrielsen
Relatives lived in(Eigeland) Sor-Audnedal Vest Agder Norway. Some left in early 1900's for the United States. While others stayed in Norway. I have this information on one relative that stayed on farm,in a book "Norges Bebyggselse" there is a picture of a house, under the picture it reads: "Eir Elizabeth Egeland, f.18/5-1896 i Sor-Audnedal, Foreldre Jensine og Boruf, T.E." Elizabeth (Betty) died in Norway in 1977. Elizabeth was my greatgrandfathers sister. His name was Tobias B., he was born in 1882, besides Elizabeth he had another sister named Theodora and two brothers, Gunnar B., born 1887, and Johan Bernt or Brent, born 1892. My great grandfather married a woman named Benda or Brenda Borresen or Borroson, she was born in 1881, possibly in Snig or Mandal,they were married in 1902, they had eleven children. Two born in Norway the rest in the United States.Benda had a sister, her married name was Hildur Hasdahl. Would like to hear from anyone that can help.
