They can attend both reunions and make the journey worthwhile! I have traveled to Norway and visited some of the family farms that have been located. I want to express my thanks to the following persons who made major contributions: My mother, for answering a thousand questions and contributing towards a most enjoyable trip to Minnesota to research our "roots" in June, 1983; My daughter, for typing and editing this document; Michael Gordon, for helping to develop the format and early typing support via computer; Chester Christianson, for all his knowledge of the family, and his years of effort in uncovering information; Jean Jacobsen, for sending me the majority of information contained within this document and her major contribution in developing the information in this document; Kjellaug Vold for supplying all the information on the Norwegian branch; John Lukens for designing the cover. It gets a little confusing, because for each generation you go back, the number of entries double.I'm sure I have missed some people, to those my apologies. This edition likely contains many errors and obviously a lot of missing data. To overcome this confusion, we have listed the parents and children for each person.
Numbers from the National Center for Health Statistics show 20 percent of married couples separate or divorce after five years.Contact me, Michael Gordon via email] The Gordon's are having their 50th Annual Family Reunion on Sunday, June 15, 1986 at Lake Itasca, Minnesota. This should prove to be a large gathering and an event not to be missed. I figured why not an Evenstad Family Reunion on Saturday, June 14. Mattias Knudsen Evenstad married Oline Olsdatter on January 2, 1856. They had seven children: Ole, Martin, Caroline, Olava, Kjersti, Haakon, and Amelia. This farm is three miles northeast of Brummunddal up the Brummundriver Valley. I have family trees for all four sets of great-grandparents and all (or most) of their descendents. 1845 census includes 5429 persons with residence unknown.I also have joined Sons of Norway, studied Norwegian history, begun studying the Norwegian language, have become something of a genealogist, and visited Norway in 1984, and again in 1985. There is an excellent Mormon library in Los Angeles that is very useful.

Their names were Jens Halvorsen and Birgit Knudsdatter. They had a son, Ole Jensen, born January 1, 1796 in Gol, Hallingdal, Norway. Also in the 1700's were born a boy Haavors Arnesen (1781) and a girl, Kristi Olsdatter (B. Haavors and Kristi had a daughter, Mette Haavorsdatter, born in 1798 in Gol. "sen" and "son" both meant son; "datter" means daughter. Ole Jensen married Mette Haavorsdatter and lived on the Taskerud farm in Hedmark province some distance from where he was born (60 miles as the crow flies). This area is known as the eastern valley district of Norway. She married Knud Knudsen who had been a soldier and a salesman. An explanation of Norwegian names: In the old days, people in Norway were identified by their Christian names and their father's name. In addition, a third name was often used, usually a farm name.
