Dombas Oppland Norway to Hanska Brown Minnesota

Dombas Oppland Norway to Hanska Brown Minnesota

Posted: 18 Aug 2013 8:00PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Endreson, Bentdahl, Bentdahlen, Blenshen
Marit Jorgensdatter b.1832 - d.1891 married to
Ole Endreson Bentdahl b.1828 - d.1917

Marit's parents:
Jorgen Paulsen Bentdahlen b.1801
Brigit Suensdatter Bleshen b.1805

My question is where do the Surnames Endreson, Bentdahl, Bentdahlen and Blenshen come from? I am totally stuck with nowhere to go from Brigit's or Jorgen's parents!?

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated!

Bentdahl, Bentdahlen and Blenshen are not surnames -- those are addresses; sometimes used as additional identifiers.

You appear to be looking for persons from Dovre, Oppland which was earlier included as part of Lesja, Oppland.

See here is the birth/baptismal record for Jørgen Poulsen --
left hand page, sixth baptism (døbt) on that page.

Birgit's father was not 'Suen' -- his given name was Svend. Her birth/baptism record is found in middle of the year 1805 and her family lives on Blæstrund farm in the 1801 census -- also in Lesja, Oppland.

Hope that helps with the spelling confusion.
