On Alt for Norge


After some 165 years, I finally made it back home! I spent Sunday driving around Skien, Norway looking for the farms where my Norwegian ancestors lived before relocating to southeastern Wisconsin in the 1850s (see: Langesund, Hoppestad, Foss, Gjerpen parish, Kamperhaug, Thorsholt, and Siljan parish). Sadly, I’ve been living in Norway too long to participate on Alt for Norge
