What I know:
Approximate year range:1608 - current

Location: Sor Aurdal, Valdres, Norway and US (Minnesota plus others states)

Other Information:

I have a family tree beginning with Bjorn Olson Sorflate (b.1608). The US portion began with Ole Olson Sorflaten who immigrated to the US in 1858. All Sorflatens in the US phone book are related to me and in the tree.I have
quite a large tree to date. (It's in the FTM web area.)

The Canadian Sorflatens are all related, but no link has been established to the US Sorflatens.

What I would like to find out:

I figure most Sorflatens have some relation, going back far enough. (The name is derived from the "south flat" -- sor flaten-- area of the Bagn District in Sor Aurdal, Norway.

The GRA and International Databases have provided three "groups" of Sorflatens. I'm looking for the "missing links".

#1. Linkages to "Olive Sorflaten, b 1884, Spring Prarie, WI, and #2. Mikkel Sorflaten b. 3 Aug 1875 in Souraurdal, Sorflaten, Opland, Norway.
#3. A third group is related to Neorge Sorflaten b. 28 Feb 1906, Nesbyen, Buskerud, Norway.

The Canadian Sorflatens begin with Martin Olson Sorflaten, b. 28 May 1873, Valdres,Norway (his son, Einer lives in Winnepeg, b. 12 Oct, 1912)and is quite a talker! (Great guy)! (I guess we must be related because my grandfather's name was "Martin" too!
