Source - Minnesota birth record of the couple's first child.

The various census records, vital records for the children, even her death record vary in that they have her given name as Tina, Tena, Lena or Berntina (only one appearance of that).

Berg would not be a Norwegian surname of the time period of her birth - but rather an indication of what is probably a farm name in Norway -- an address. Some Norwegian emigrants switched from original patronymic name to a 'farm name' when they emigrated or later.
