Brevik ancestors IP: 188.8.131.52 Posted on May 9, 2011 at 22:50:56 by Tracy
My grandfather emigrated from the area in 1906 (his uncle left before him, not sure when, but his name was Hans Ingebretsen, his mothers brother) ultimately ending up on the west coast in Seattle, WA.
Henry Marinius Hansen was born JUL 1889 to Lars Peter Hansen b NOV 1860 (his parents were Hans Petter Johnsen b 1824 & Maren Helene Larsdatter b 1824) and Janna Elise Ingebretsen b OCT 1862 (parents Hans Johan Ingebretsen b 1831 & Inger Marie Hansdatter b 1834) - they all seemed to stay in the Brevik area, and I have been able to find my ggggrandparents as well. But I would like to see if I can find Henrys siblings (those that remained in Norway) if possible: Viktor Eugene (different father) b 1884 ; Ingerid Marie b 1891 ; Ingrid b 1892 ; Borghild b 1893 ; Ernst Leonard b 1896 ; Hjordis b 1898 ; Lilly Julie b 1900
We know that Viktor went by Eugen and moved to Canada and Ernst went to Australia (never have found either one in those countries unfortunately) and would like to find his sisters. Would love to be able to find my family across the ocean! Replies: There have been no replies.
