I have been trying to find my ggrandparents who came from Norway. GGrandfather: Lars/Lewis Hovland born Oct. 30, 1854 in Hadeland, Oppland, Norway. GGrandmother: Mathilda Dahltorp born Oct. 8, 1865 in Fredrikstad, Ostfold, Norway. They were married in the USA in 1900. I have been unable to find out anything else about them such as their parents, when they immigrated, etc. Can anyone help me? Please? Thank you.

Lars Iversen Hovland and brother Johan Iversen Holvland
left Jevnaker April 19 1882 for Eau Clair. They started their journey to Hull, England where they bordered a lager ship for America. They used A. Sharpe as agent for Allan Line so they might have bordered the S/S Buenos Eyrean in Glasgow/Liverpool in April 25/26 and arrived Quebec May 13
You find the brothers Iversen Hovland and family at the census of 1875

The immigration date for Matilda might help find her on the passenger lists.

Hello Judy,
I am trying to find out more about my Hovland family in Norway and I came across this entry you did back in 2004 and it appears your search was for my family so I would like to get in touch with you to see what you have found on the Hovland’s. Please contact me. Thank you! Jim
