Surnames: Nordbeck, Flodin, Haavi
I am looking for any information on my great aunt Johanne Haavi born 7 Apr 1872, Trysil Norway.

Married John Flodin 2 May 1910 in Norway. John was killed.

Aunt Johanne(a) then married Peter Nordbeck after abt 1912. They lived in Wildwood, Alberta, Canada.

We have a few pictures of her, but cannot find anything of her life in Wildwood. We think she died in 1956 & is buried there.

Any info appreciated.

Thank you!! You've created a 'break through' that I've been searching for a long while. I had even searched for 'Norbeck' instead of 'Nordbeck' on both Ancestry & (my Norwegian cousin was either wrong in the spelling or it was changed or mispelled when they immigrated as I've discovered happens a lot). However, the dates you offered made a wider search possible & I found lots of new information!:-) You are right about Trysil, Norway. It is actually not a very big city. I only have U.S. access on Ancestry which I need to change as so many of my relatives on all side came to Canada first. I never did run across the record you describe. Is it a Canadian border crossing record? Regardless, I truly appreciate your effort to help - which you DID! Thanks again for your time.
