* HALVORSEN of Ostføld, Norway*

Updated October 21, 2001

I am searching for descendants of Halvor Olsen, of Ostføld fylke in Norway. Halvor was born in 1721, and married Berthe Olsdatter in 1781. Berthe died in 1780, before the couple had any children. Halvor then married Karen Margete FREDRIKSDATTER, from Gate in 1781.
Please check out my "Genealogy Report: Descendants of Halvor OLSEN" link at the bottom of this page. It will explain in detail the lineage of my gr-gr-gr-gr-grandfather Halvor OLSEN.
Most of my HALVORSEN ancestors were from Rygge and Glemmen. Farm names include "Skjelin" in Skjeberg, "Aaserød", and
"Braaten", all in Ostføld fylke.
