Surnames: Ness, Makstad
I am looking for any information regarding this person. All my grandparents could tell me is that he was born in Surnadal, Norway.

I know he has a child named Ole Tollefsen Ness born 8 March 1864, which I am a decendent of. But I am not even aware of the child's mothers name.

I would be grateful for any information anyone might have.

Thank you,
Diana Ness

Where was the son, Ole, born? If in Norway, can you share in what fylke and district?

Surnadal is in Møre og Romsdal fylke of Norway.

Hemne is in Sør-Trøndelag, Norway.

Ole Tøllefsen's family lives on the "Næs." farm in Hemne for the 1900 Norwegian census. (His wife was born in Surnadal.)

This is probably him in his parent's family in the 1865 Norwegian census when lived on a place called "Dalumsøvnet".
His parents are both listed as also born in Hemne.

Ole's birth/baptismal record in Hemne parish church books -

Look earlier in the Hemne church books for the marriage of his parents and it should list the fathers of both the bride and groom and will probably give you their ages at the time of event. Then you can look for their births etc.

Perhaps the family story has confused Ole's wife's family location with that of his own parentage.

Good luck.
