Family Genealogy
Sunday, December 14, 2008
 

This is the Haselhaugen farm in Norway where my gg-grandparents Lars and Ragnhild Gudbrandson and their family lived from approximately 1850 to 1877 when they emigrated to Wisconsin. The farm was owned by the Hallingby family which meant that they pretty much controlled Lars and Ragnhild's life. In Norwegian terms Lars was a 'cotter'. He did not own the farm but was allowed to live there as long as he worked for the Hallingby family and did their bidding. The Begna river passes close by. I remember reading that he had a boat that he used to take people across the river. Also the Hval Church is within short walking distance from their house. This is the church where their daughter Bertha, my g-grandmother, was married. Both Lars and Ragnhild had specific jobs they had to do in maintaining and operating the church. My Norwegian is not all that good but what I think is written with the picture are the names of people who have have owned the farm since the 1950's and the names of their parents and years when the farm has been restored or remodeled.
