Family Genealogy

Being three fourths Norwegian meant spending a lot of time looking for Norwegian ancestors. Luckily there are several very good free sources of Norwegian genealogy information on the Internet. One of these is a Bygdebok. This link will take you to one of the many Bygdeboks that have been put on the Internet. This particular Bygedbok is of the Lien Farm located in the Al parish in Buskerud. If you go to #151 you will find a section about Asle Erikison Lien and Guri Herbrandsdtr Jegleim (my gg-grandparents) and also about their daughter Astrid (my g-grandmother) and her children. It is written in Norwegian but I think a non-Norwegian speaking person can pretty much understand who married who and when they married. The picture shows a section from this Bygdebok about Asle's parents. If my Norwegian is correct the bottom couple of sentences is stating that Asle's father was stabbed and killed in an argument over money in 1830.
