Return to Norway

The next few entries I will be revisiting the areas of Norway where the Olson/Finnestad family had lived prior to moving to America.

The family of Ole and Mari started in the county of Rogaland, municipality of Hjelmeland, community of Fister.

Based upon documents I have found, Ole and Mari lived in Fister from at least the time of their marriage, July 4, 1844 until November 3, 1862 when they purchased a farm in the county of Rogaland to the municipality of Hetland, community of Frue, where the Finnestad farm was located.
