Elsa Nordahl Fickeisen is searching for clues on the location of her ancestors, the NORDAHLs/ORBECKs, the DAHLs, and the MOE's. References to the North Valley Farm, Orbeck, and Trondheim are indicated in personal family letters.
Henry NORDAHL (b) 12 Apr 1868 was the grandson of Johannes FREDRIK ORBECK (b) 23 May 1811 who took the name of NORDAHL after a battle over a church bell in Lade which upset the family. The same ancestor did work in Orkdal - he was a building contractor.
There are DAHL's on both my mother's and father's side of the family.
I need to find the parish or kommune of these people so that I may research further. Can someone help me locate these areas so that I may find my ancestors, and especially, my cousins in Norway?
