I am planning a trip to Stavanger in June 2024 and was wondering if there were any family related to Hans Olsen Haaland 1837-1911 or Jakob Olaus Hanson 1870-1941 that would like to meet and have lunch.

I thank you for this resource, so we who do not live in Norway can find many of our Norwegian ancestors who lived on Karmøy. I was very happy to see the farms and churches during my visit to Karmøy last year.

Jeg takker for denne ressursen, så vi som ikke bor i Norge kan finne mange av våre norske forfedre som bodde på Karmøy. Jeg var veldig glad for å se gårdene og kirkene under mitt besøk på Karmøy i fjor.

Min farslinje går tilbake til Torbjørn Larsen (1742–1788) på Snørteland, gift med Brita Hansdatter Fagerland. Det * * * tidligere vært usikkert om Brita kom fra Fagerland, men etter å ha tatt en DNA-test på familytreedna.com, ble jeg kontaktet av en familie Fagerland i USA.

Jeg ble også kontaktet av en annen norsk-amerikaner, som var veldig interessert i at jeg skulle ta flere Y-DNA-tester. Det viser seg at vi som er på mannslinjen etter Torbjørn Larsen, deler Y-DNA med mange skotter, herunder den norske vikingen Sumarlidi / Somerled, som er stamfaren til en rekke skotske klaner. Somerled * * * vært viktig for DNA-forskningen fordi etterslekten hans er nedtegnet i skotske annaler. Han er også omtalt i flere norrøne sagaer.

Mange på Karmøy vet vel nå at Y-DNA nedarves så å si uforandret fra far til sønn. Torbjørn Larsen * * * mange etterkommere på mannslinjen. Når flere tester seg, kan dette bli et godt hjelpemiddel til familiehistorien.

Hei. Jeg prøver å finne informasjon om en Etleier Jonsen 1684-1747 (mulig fornavn egentlig Eiliv/Eilif) Han bodde på Karmøy og var visstnok opprinnelig fra Island. Håper å finne navn på foreldre.
Mvh
Fredrick Haaland

This site is fantastic. A fellow genealogist gave me the link to this site as her ancestors are from this area. My ancestors are from the Kinsarvik, Ullensvang area. I wish there was a site like this for that region as it would make tracking my family ancestry a lot easier. Thank you for providing this for fellow researchers like me! If anyone knows of a location for Ullensvang records that I can access from the United States, please reach out! Thanks!

* * * er far til Johan Johnsen gift 1. Gang med Gurla Gregersdatter, andre gang med Eli Danielsdatter.

Nanene forvirrer meg, så vet ikke helt hvor jeg skal lete.

I am so appreciative of the information you are sharing. My ancestors were from the Varne, Munkejord, and Saevland farms. My great grandfather Vermund Rasmussen, b. 1853, and his wife, Ragnhild Olsdatter, b. 1851, and their first 5 children immigrated to the US in abt. 1884. They first settled in Iowa and had two more children, including my grandfather Arthur Warne. The family surname was changed to Warne we believe to be from the Varne farm name. The family then permanently settled in South Dakota. I would be happy to share information about our family here in the US. I am hopeful that someday I will be able to visit Karmoy.
