I am looking for information on Ole Grande born in 1873 in Mosvigen, Norway. He married Berthe ??, she was born in 1870 in Levanger, Landdistrikt, Norway. Together they had 2 children Olav Grande born in 1894 in Levanger and Nelie Grande born January 3, 1899 in Levanger. There was also a family that was living there in the same household and ther names are Kolbanus and Jonnetta Jensen. Kolbanus was born in 1826 and Jonnetta was born in 1833. If anybody has info on this family please let me know.

Thankyou John, I do have this census but I am trying to trace the family back farther. I tried to read the norway web site but do not read there language. I will go to the site you have and read your article. Thankyou for your help.

I saw your message and had just been doing some stuff on my grandfather who was frok Mosvik. I still have 2nd cousins in Mosvik and a cousing in Levanger. I ran across a data base of people who left Mosvik for Amerika and the following Grande is listed : 28.05.1902 Lovise Grande age 37 from Mosviken with destination Halstad, Minn sailing with the Stjerne line on the Tasso (this ship would have taken her to Hull, England, then probably by train to Liverpool) with a ticket to America.

Don't know if this is of interest but thought I would pass it along

I, too, am looking for information on the Grande Family. Harald Petter Godtfred Grande's father was Ole Jonsen Grande and mother was Anne Katrine Pedersdatter. This Grande family lived in Oksnes, Nordland, Norway. Haral was born in 1879 and died in 1958. He married Elfrida Charlotte Christiansen in 1907. Ole Jonsen Grande, his father, was born about in 1831. Any information will be of great value and much appreciated. Thank you.

You have some real problems with that information.

The parish records for Øksnes, Nordland are available online for free searching by anyone and the birth/baptismal record for Harald Peter Gottfried (born 20 Nov 1879) does NOT list his father as Ole Jonsen.

In the 1875 census for Øksnes, Nordland Harald's parents are not yet married but they both reside on the same farm -

The census lists that Harald's father is NOT originally from Øksnes but was from Ytterøy (probably Verran parish there) in Nørd-Trondelag, Norway. So that is the location where you should research to find the earlier family history of that particular "Grande" family. Since there was more than one Grande named farm in Norway - you can expect to find others also using that name that are not related at all.

Thank you for your quick response. I'm sorry. I don't read Norwegian. Who are Harald's parents? I see his brother John Lauritz but can't decipher his parents' names.

I appreicate your assistance so much!

The baptism record posted by thoraway says Harald's parents were Johan Lauritz Grande, born 19 Aug 1844; and his wife, Henriette Marie née Herness, born 16 Aug 1856.
