I'am seeking the descendants of Anders Larson and Birgit Helgesdtr.
Anders was born in Sweden, Sillerud 11.22.1876
Birgit was born in Norway, Gol 07.06.1879 ,daugther of Helge Anfinson and Liv Aslaksdtr. Living at the farm Spildrejorde.

Anders, Birgit and their daugther Helga Marie, left Norway April 18.1908 for Idaho.
Adress in 1920: Winchester, Idaho

Helga Marie was born 07.22.1903
I got help from another boad, to look them up on 1930 census: Helga Marie married Harold Johnson

She must be identical to: "Johnson, Helga Marie, b. 07-22-1903, d. 05-23-1966, s/p Doris" Forest Cemetery
Kootenai County, Idaho

In FamilySearch I found:
Bergette LARSON
Birth Date: 6 Jul 1879
Death Date: Apr 1973
Coeur D Alene, Kootenai, Idaho

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you Mary. Do the obits usually contain names of relatives?

Normally the obits do list family members. However, the information is usually given by other family members. In the case of Bergetta (I think she died last), I don't think there were any local relatives left to do that. I thought that was so sad.
