Ancestor Ole Nelson Rudy born Jan 14, 1864 in Vangs Vallers Norway His parents are Nels Olson Rudy and Anne Fenkels. On May 6, 1886 Ole married Ingeborg Bondeli who was born Feb 16, 1865 in Norway. Her parents are Lars Bondeli and Berte Kolstad. Family emigrated to Saulte St Marie in May 1889.
What or where is Vangs Vallers in Norway? What county is it in? Is Rudy(i), Vangs, or Vallers the farm name?

Thank you for any help you can give me.

Close to Rudi is Bunde farm, where Bundeli probably was a subfarm.

Surnames: Rude Rudi Rudy
I just came across your post on my (our?) great grandfather - we spell our last name Rude as Ole put in the 1940 census - but we have long sought out the information on the actual spelling and its meaning. A little insight has been found here but please let us know what you might have found since this long ago post.
