Hi, I'm looking for my ancestral families.
My Grandfather was Peder Ingvald Stornes
born on Jan.13 1892 in Giske,Norway
and my Grandmother was Marie Magdalene Hauge
born on May 31 1893 in Bergen Norway.
They immigrated to Canada in 1910 I believe.
Any help would be most appreciated,

Peder Ingvald Staurnes (not Stornes) was born 13.01.1892 on the island of Giske by farmer Jonas Didrikson Staurnes (born at Flem in Haram parish) (1848-1930) and his wife Petrine Olsdaughter (1854-1937). Their son Ragnvald (born 1889) took over but emigrated to US and his brother Martin (1882-1941) took over. It was a lot of lively ghoststories about the farm, and no one wanted to live there. The hoses were abandonded.

More than 20.000 people in all ages gather at the fields of

Dear Gunnar,
We came across your detailed information on the family of Jonas Didriksen (Staurnes), and wonder if you could send us more?
My husband is the grandson of Jonas's daughter Ingeborg Anna, b. Jan. 4, 1894. She had changed her last name to HESS by the time she married in Stavanger, in 1916 to Gunleif Westlye. He took off for New York, and eventually, with two kids, she followed him there in 1927; they lived in Brooklyn.
We are interested in how Ingeborg's grandmother Andrine Olsdatter may be connected to another Olsdatter female -- Ingeborg, b. 1818 -- who was married to Andreas Johannessen and was mother of Salomon Andreassen Staurnes. Salomon and Jonas farmed at Staurness together according to an 1868 land holdings document seen online (Excel file).
Are also wondering if you are part of this family, and whether you may have any photographs of members. We do have photos of Ingeborg and her husband Gunleif Westlye.
Best wishes,
Debra & Mark Westlye
