I have found information on my Berge relatives that goes back to Tinn Telemark, Norway. My Great great grandfather was Ingebrit Jonsson Berge HAKALAND, born 1788 and immigrated from Hakaland, Tinn, Telemark, on the ship Argo in 1843. His parents were Jon Ingebritsson HAKALAND born about 1752 and died 1835, and Gyry Sigurdsson BJORNERUD born about 1754, both from Tinn, Telemark. Ingebrit and his wife settled in Wisconsin. His wife was Aslaug Jonsson MARHEIM, b 1783 in Tinn Telemark. Her parents were Jon MARHEIM, born about 1761, and Kari Gununufsson GUNNULVSSON born about 1761, both from Tinn Telemark.
I will visit Norway this summer and very much would like to see the farms my ancestors came from. This information is froma pedegree chart I got from family search. I hope you know of these farms. Replies:
