Surnames: Gundersdatter, Borufsen and Aanensdatter
My grandmother was Randi Gundersdatter,born March 2, 1872 on a farm place called "Lineland" to Gunder Borufsen and Ingeborg Aanensdatter.

I am trying to determine if any of her brothers or sisters had children that would be a starting point to determine if I have relatives living in Norway today. Her siblings were:
1.Bendik Gundersen born 15 March 1864 in Landland, Laudal, Vest Agder.
2. Torborg Gundersdatter born 18 Feb. 1866 in Landland, Laudal, Vest Agder.
3. Johan Gundersen born 19 July 1876 in Vigmostad in Nord-Audnedal, Vest-Agder, Norway.
4.Aanen Tobias born 15 June 1885 in Vigmostad, Vest-Adger, Norway.

I know this is asking a lot. But I am really lost in my search. I know that my grandmother had other siblings but they died in infancy or during their youth.

Any help or guidance you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thank youk

Aanen and Johan are listed with their parents, unmarried, in the 1910 census:

BUT.......

The census says Aanen is living in North Dakota, and Johan is living in Washington.

Did they stay in America or return to Norway?

Wow, what a shock. I was never told that they came to America. I have to assume they returned to Norway as I was told that her entire family was in Norway. Thanks Brain for the great information and any other help you can provide would be fantastic.

Hi Robert, An online family tree lists your family this way:

Andreas Børufsen, Åvik born 02 July 1855 in Åvik, Spangereid, Vest-Agder, Norway
found in the 1865 census in Åvik, Spangereid, Vest-Agder, Norway (Digitalarkivet)

His FATHER: Børuf Kristiansen, Åvik born 12 Jan 1828 in Åvik, Spangereid, Vest-Agder
His MOTHER: Othea Ånensdatter, Njerve born 22 Sep 1828 in Njerve, Spangereid, Vest-Agder
Two children for this couple are named (not necessarily a complete list) - Andreas and a brother, Peder Kristian Børufsen Åvik 1853-1856


Børuf Kristiansen's PARENTS:
Børuf's FATHER: Peter Kristian Børufsen, Hovan born 15 MAR 1799 in Hovan, Sør-Audnedal, Vest-Agder, the son of Børuf Bertelsen Tredal (1775-1846) and Inger Elene Knudsdatter Hovan (1777-1846)
Børuf's MOTHER: Rakel Tomine Olsdatter, Åvik born early 1794 and baptised 02 Feb 1794 in Spangereid, Vest-Agder


Here is a link to the tree, with the name of the tree creator and his contact information.

Here is a link to a WONDERFUL conversation online that includes the creator of the above family tree. They are discussing "Boruf Christiansen, married to Othea Aanensdatter." Note it's important to look for the first name and the patronymic name. The address name at the end can change when the person moves. That's why sometimes people put a comma between the patronymic name and the address name.
(example: Børuf Kristiansen, Åvik means he's Børuf the son of Kristian and living at Åvik)

You probably know all that but hope it's okay I added just in case it helps.
