My name is Valerie Heimark. I live in California.
My grandfather was Ole H. Heimark from Warwick, ND.
I believe he was born in Montevideo, MN and graduated from
St Olafs in 1899. My grandmother is
Inga Hjelle from Kristiansund, Norway. I would like to find
other relatives in Norway and the USA. My great grandparents
were Cecelia Storebo and Halvor Heimark. Was Halvor the
son of Endre Olsen Heimark? Who were Cecelia's parents.
What happened to Kari Heimark (Cecilia and Halvor's daughter) Takk!~_

Carrie Susanna Heimark Married Henry Oscar Berg Feb 23, 1910 in Clarkfield, MN. They moved to Canada and returned to Solway MN in 1920 where they farmed. They are my Grandparents so have information on them if interested. Hope this helps. Dave

Dear Dave,
I replied to your inquiry before I saw someone else had given you that info. But then I saw another message about your family settling in Clarkfield Mn. in 1866-70.
I found out that my grandfather, Jacob Storebo worked in Clarkfield, MN probably when he came to USA. I just came upon a photo of him taken in Clarkfield when he was quite young. I know he came over in 1890 and that would make him 18 or so. I wonder if this is the first place he came to and if he somehow knew your relatives from Norway and that is why he came there to work for them. My grandfather later settled in the Finley, ND area where my mother grew up.
I wonder if you have ever heard about a Jacob Gjertsen Storebo who lived in the same place in Norway as your great grandmother. It is fun to find clues about where he came to and why.
Thanks for any info you have. I really think our ancestors where friends from the old country!

My Grandfather also came from Heimark, Norway near Austevoll and Huftaroy. We still have Heimark relatives living in Norway. When a lot of the imagrants came from other countries the officials here shortened their names when they arrived. They were not given any choice in the matter. Grandfather was named Paul Oles'Son Heimark and the officials said his name was legally Paul Olson. Grandmothers name was Andrene Hansene Andres'Daughter Jgerde from Somnonger and they gave her the legal name of Anna Anderson. Some of the people that came from Heimark were allowed to keep the village name as their last name. It all depended on when you arrived and who the officials were. When Grandfather went back to Norway for visits in the 50s, all his relatives there were Heimarks.Hope this has been a help to anyone doing family research as long as you know that the name could have been changed here. It sure makes it harder.
