My name is Donald Amundson from Minnesota. I have some data revealing ancestors dating back to the 1640's. I am currently looking for information on my great great grandfather Amund Braaten. I understand that he left from the Numedal region of Norway and arrived in the US in 1849 ro 1850. A search of the passenger list of the Bark Christiane arriving in New York on July 15 contains some familiar sounding names. Amund Braata with sons Ole Braata and Torsten Braata could be them. Ole would be Ole Braaten who later changed his name to Ole B. Amundson, my great grandfather. As I understand, Amund and family traveled to Koshkonong, Wisconsin(Cambridge). I believe that Amund and Ole changed their last name to Amundson and moved to Rapidan Minnesota and later to Hanska Minnesota.

If anyone has anymore information on these people, I would appreciate the help.
