This is too little information!

When did they immigrate?
When was their father and mother born, married
In Norway census 1900 it is over twenty that are using the surname Skøyen

Norman and Doris were born in South Dakota and then immigrated to southern Saskatchewan. My father has a brother Eric but I haven't talked with him since I was a little kid! We are in northern Alberta now... thanks for any information you can give me!

I am a Skoyen descendant.

Here is the info I have. John Skoyen (born Jul 1884)married Isabella Grainger (b May 1888). John was born in Wisconsin and immigrated to Canada/Saskatchewan in 1906 and became a citizen in 1909. They had several kids but I don't have all their bdates. Eleanor, Eric, Victor (d. 1964, married Mary and had two kids - Larry and Louise), Norman (b. 1925, d 1988, married Doris b. 1927, d. 1995 - had five kids: Betty, Victor, Margaret,Valerie and Eric), John/Jack (b. 1910 Had 3 wives? Winnie, Joan and Molly - 3 kids: Donny, Gail and Charlotte), Irma (married Al Larocque and had 2 kids: Gary and Brian) and Anna (Anna is my maternal Grandmother b. 1917 d. 1990)

I do have a copy of the SK 1911 Census that shows John & Isabella's info if you would like it. I also have a copy of their land claim.

Take care, cuz :)

In 1905 The Skoyen family was living in Hale, Trempeleau county, Wisconsin.

John's parents were Anton J. Skoyen (born ca. 1852 in Norway), and his wife, Ida A. Olsen (born ca. 1860, also in Norway).

John's sister, Anna M. Skoyen, was born in Hale, WI, on 22 Sep 1885.
