Interesting journal TL.
Also The Valdres Samband would be grateful for participants in their Norwegian-American research projects.

Oh thank you for linking the Valdres Samband. I am so new to the formatting here I wasn't sure how to get links to post. I only have a few pages of notes from my great grandmother Oline - but I've thought about offering them to the organization - when I checked the site yesterday it appears that one of the members is writing a book on Norwegian migrations across the US which sounds fascinating. From what I can piece together of my own family - they did just that - relocating from the Dakotas out to Oregon.

Hi My name is Jackie and my grandfather was a Strand from Denmark, but originally from Norway. Our family has links to Strand, Oppen, Svenes Lo, in Aurdal, Hallingdal and Valdres.

Keen to hear of any possible links?

Hi I am from the Knud Jonsen Strand family (1730) from Hallingdal or possibly Valdres area who married Thuri Pedersdatter.
Keen to hear of any descendants or family history for Strand (Stran) family earlier than 1730.

Wow, Jaxstrand - thank you for your comments! I haven't been on this site for a while - I would like to get back into the swing of writing a bit more than scrounging through family tree hints.
I will start by looking on ancestry to see if perhaps we have a mapped connection but it does sound intriguing. I have connected with a member of the Rindal family (My great grandmother was a Rindal - and she married a Strand) who still works in the church in Dovre where many of my family used to attend. I have a small website too - and I'm on Facebook - but I'll check back in here too. So nice to meet you.

Hi, my name is Ernie Parada. I am researching my great grandfather. Mathias Strand, from Malm, Norway. He was married to Caroline Berg also from Malm. They migrated ultimately to Montana where my grand father, Enoch, was born as well as several other siblings. I would be interested in making a family connection if possible.
