Search for Andreas Julius Nilsen .
I am looking for relatives of Andreas Julius Nilsen from Frederickstadt, Norway. A sister Josephine and Elizabeth all came to United States circa 1900. They settled in Seattle, Washington. Also looking for relatives of Ernst and Thora Dahl. Their children were Thyra, Erna, Ingvald, and Harold. Ingvald born in North Dakota in 1910. Everyone else born in Norway. My grandpa was Ingvald Henry Dahl. Maybe the Oslo area? Looking for relatives in Norway--I am in Florida, USA.
I too am searching for information on a Andres Nilsen from Frederikstadt. He was married to a Josefine Olsen and was Father to my maternal Grandmother - Anna Karoline Nilsen - born in 1890. As far as I am aware they had nine children, but there could have been more.Could it be that there is some connection between the two Andreas Nilsen's.
I am in Australia and would be grateful for any information.
I to am looking for realtives from Norway. From my information, Abdreas was married ti Giori, They should have been born in the early 1800's. They had a daughter bythe name of Bolettte marie Andreasdatter in 1830.
Anyone with information will be of great help.
Thank you Necil Kelley

Unsure abot the value of replying to this 14 years old message, but still...
The Dahl family you mention came from Lurøy in Nordland, which is in the northern part of Norway. Ernst emigrated 1905, and Thora the year after with the first two of their children Erna (born 1902) and Johan Martin (born 1904). Also travelling together with Thora was her sister Ellerine (Ella). Another sister, Lina, was already in North Dakota having married Ingvald Thomassen from Lovund (part of Lurøy too) in the norwegian sailors church in Brooklyn in 1902.
The families of the two sisters mentioned ended up in Washington, in Blaine and Bellingham respectively with family names Gloppen and Thompson (english for Thomassen).
The full norwegian names were
Ernst Marius Dahl Pedersen (born 1872)
Thora Georgine Zahl Olsdatter (born 1874)
Ellerine Antonette Zahl Olsdatter (born 1883)
Waldemar Rasmussen Glopen (born 1878)
Lina Jørgine Zahl Olsdatter (born 1881)
Ingvard Nicolai Holst Thomassen (born 1878)
