Looking for info on Even Ostensen from the Bjerklien Farm in Ringsaker. He was born in 1817. He was married to Karoline Hansdatter born in 1818. They had children Osten, Andrias, Ole and Agnete. They emmigrated to La Crosse, Wisconsin in 1872. Andrias changed his name to Andrew Lee and moved to Alberta Canada in 1899. I am specifically interested in finding more info on Even Ostensen or Karoline Hansdatter and their parents. I have been through all of the out-migrant lists and the 1865 census and got the info on the rest of the family. I am stumped on Even and Karoline.

The 1865 census indicates that Even was born in Ringsaker, Hedmark and that Karoline was born in Vestre Toten in Oppland.
You'll need to look at the parish records to determine each of their parents. There's a good article about doing that --
