This is a picture of the Dyrdal farm. It is overlooks the Sognefjord in Norway. This is the farm where my g-grandfather Sjur Markusson was born and raised. He was born there in 1827. His father was also born there as well as his father and his father. Sjur left the farm in 1854 to come to America with his older brother Lars. They ended up in Goodhue County, Minnesota.
