1900 Census

The birth record for Astrid said she was born on the farm Volden (which is in Bodin parish, Nordland), and baptized in Bodø. The 1910 census also verifies that she was born in Bodin.

In the 1900 census for the farm "Volden nordre" in Bodin, Astrid is still living there, but not with her mother. She is listed as a foster daughter of Peder Gundersen and Severine Emilie Moe:

The 1910 census said that Astrid's mother was born in Veo. This is her, working as a housekeeper for the widower Elling Strømme on the farm Nygaard in 1900.

It appears that Astrid's mother never married, so now the question is - was her half-brother from her mother or from her father?
