My great grandfather, Ole A. Olson, was born in Decorah, IA in 1868. His parents, Ingebrigt (Ambert) & Gertrude Jane Severson Olson came from Jostedal, Norway in the 1860's to Jackson Twnshp, Chickasaw Cty, IA, moving to Artisan, SD in 1893, then to Hayti, SD a year later. Ole & Nicoline Sveen Olson moved to the Adams, ND area, where Ole died in 1954.
I currently have 15 generations dating back to mid-1500's to a Ragnhild Aasen (about 1540) and Knut Aasen (1565-1650) both from Aasen, Jostedal, Norway. I am wondering if Ragnhild is Knut's mother. Knut is the father of Anders Knutson Aasen (1596-1653) in Varmberg, father of Gunnhild A. Aasen (1637-1735). Gunnhild was married to Ole Arneson Aasen (1621-1700), his father is Arne Bruem (1590-1652) and Arne's mother is Helge Bruem (1550-1602) both from Bruheim. I am still researching for information on these people and possibly earlier generations.

I have a 5 volume set of historical books from the Luster region of Norway, written in Norweigan. I also have the Hamlin County, SD historical book and the 4 volume set of Walsh County, ND. I am willing to share information.

I hope to have this Tree published in the FTW soon. I have some clean-up work to do first. If you have any information on this family line or software, please contact me. Thanks!
