Does anyone have any information about Holdens in Norway? The ones in particular I am thinking of are Anne (b:1783) and Johanne Holden (1802) parents Jon Rosten and Marit Holden.

I am in contact with a fellow named Finn Holden in Norway. Do you want his e-mail? He's looking for Holdens in the US.

Do you know the origin of the name in Norway? Did you contact Finn Holden in Norway. I gave his e-mail address to another person searching for Holdens in Norway?

Hi Sally, I just came across your message and know it is old but not sure if you found your answer. Jon Rasmussen Røsten was a brother of my direct ancestor, Amund Rasmussen Røsten. Jon, of course, came from the Røsten farm in Tufsingdalen, Hedmark and his wife, Marit was the daugther of Peder Pedersen Holden and Marit Larsdatter Sandvoll. I have some information on their children if you are still interested. John Midtal (perhaps a relative of yours?), wrote a book on the families in the Tufsingdalen area in 1995 and has a lot of information on the family you were asking about. Peder Pedersen's father had come from a farm called "Bakken Søndre" Please contact me if you want additional info. Regards, Dale
