Ole was, I believe, my great grandfather. His son, Ole, Jr., my mother's father. Ole had six children, three born in Trondheim and three born in Kandiyohi County. The dates between births in NO and MN are 1867-1870. I have the old trunk, with decorative painting and with Ole's name painted as spelled above, along with the date, 1854. It appears to be painted over another name and date that I cannot discern. On the back of the trunk are the "No 3 til St Claud, Minnesota North America, Anker Line New York. I had assumed that 1854 was the date the family came over. There is limited information about Anker/Anchor Line, but supposedly it wasn't established until 1865. If anyone can offer information or documents about this family, passenger lists, marriage, location in MN prior to locating in Kandiyohi, etc., I would love to hear from you.

I have an original deed signed by Ole Johanesson and Ellen Johanesson (diff spelling), selling property in Kandiyohi Cty (signed in Polk County, registered in Kandiyohi?)to Ole Rindahl, dated April 12, 1897. Assuming again that Ole held the original land grant (probably 1875), this is the farm where my mother was born and raised. Another family member has the original land grant certificate, signed by US Grant and which my mother kept for many years before sending it to the family that now owns the farm. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I am presently scanning photos from old albums and hope to post them on a web page later. There are many without identities. but do have some of Ole's children. Also some unidentified which were taken in Trondheim/Trondhjem.

I have an original postcard from the Anker-Line "American Post Steamer Ship...From Hamburg to New York...Every Tuesday and Friday"..I have both sides of the post card scanned and a friends helped with translating the text on the back of it from Czech to English. My g-grandparents came to the USA on this ship around 1880, so that's how I ended up with it. Handwritten on the bottom of this post card is written, "Mother arrived on this ship, 1883". I would be happy to email you a copy of the scans that I did of this postcard and the typed out document with the translation, if you're interested. This post card says the company was established "27 years ago". I don't know how old the card was when my g granparents got it, but it would have had to have been in the mid 1850's.

Thanks for the offer - very nice of you. Anker Line came into being around 1865, I believe. I found the registration info for the family at Digitalarkivet. It states they left May, 1869, on SS Norway. SS Norway came into service that year, but as far as I know was only a feeder line from Norway to Liverpool. I don't know how they got from Liverpool to ?St. Cloud. There were a bunch of folks who left from Aure/More og Romsdal on the same date.

A shot in the dark...
I have photos recovered from an old photo album that fall into 3 categories:
18 Taken in Trondhjem, Norway; 29 taken in downtown Chicago; and 1 each from Calumet Michigan, Ishpeming Mich, and West Superior Wisconsin. There are also 5 unmarked and 2 tintypes. Only one Trondhjem photo (of a couple in their 20's) has a notation on the reverse: Fil Olga fra broder Olag. I thought I'd post here to see if this combination of locations fits anyone's family history. My guess is they are 1900 vintage, nice clothing, some dress uniforms that look like old-time firemen or tram conductors.
Include lots of weddings, babies and young kids. It would be great to reunite these photos with their family.
