Isn't this wonderful? You bet it is! There is only one problem, I have no idea how to read Norwegian! I can make a guess or two about what some of this says, but in this business, no guessing allowed!
I have really, actually, hit pay dirt, family across the ocean! This means I have my work cut out for me, translation is in order. Of course key words will help immensely with translating this, but I do have to make some guesses for fun!
Let's see how close I may be in the translations. Here are my guesses.
I see Dagny's siblings, parents and all of their birth dates, which I did not have. I believe I see where they were all born and the job my gggrandfather held at the time, although I am not sure what it is, something maybe referring to commissioner of a bank? In Norway, what would a commissioner have been? Maybe an owner, part owner, manager?
The single initials after each name, what would they stand for? I have a feeling it states their sex, and possibly if they are married or single? Maybe the first numbers before the names are the numbers of the person the census taker counted and the next number would be the person in the household after the head of the household as we would say. Ok, I have jumped around here a bit, but it has been fun! Enough of the guessing though. My next step will be to translate this!
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
