I know that my uncle, Anders Klungreseter still has many relatives in Norway. Their last name is Klugreseth - I am looking for information on him for my cousin Ingrid Klugreseter. Anders was born 24 Aug 1917 in Bermanger, Norway - He was the eldest son. He fought valiantly in WWII - and was a wonderful human being. Any information would be greatly appreicated

Yellow pages show 14 Klungreset in Bremanger.

Anders was actually baptized Anders Johannes, see #11 and his parents were fisherman Reinert Ulriksen and Sigveig Johansdatter, Klungreset.

Anders father, Reinhardt Andreas Ulriksen was born June 5 1892, see #21 - his parents were fisherman Ulrik Andersen and Hansine Anderssdatter.

Anders mother Signveig Johansdatter was born July 31 1898, see #21 - her parents were Johan Rasmusen and Berte Andreasdatter at the Varpe farm.
Johan and Berte (Birte) in 1900 Johans parents were Rasmus Varpe and Susanne Olsdatter.
Signveig is here listed as (1167) Signe.

Thank you both for this information about my dear Uncle Anders. There are many Klungreset's alive and on facebook - I am just trying to trace those that have passed before we can no longer remember what links we have.
From what I have been able to piece together Anders was very active during WWII fighting against the Nazi's - there is said even to be a movie here in the USA about the fight - something called the Heros of Telemark (?) His name is listed in the credits of this movie as consultant for information . I do remember some of his stories from my childhood.

The old Icelandic annals tell that the Black Death came to Bergen, Norway, in 1349 with a ship from England. This was probably at the beginning of September. From Bergen the plague spread rapidly northwards and southwards along the coast and over land to Eastern Norway.

The movie you mention is Heroes of Telemark

Another Klungreset, Johan Jørgensen Klungreset 1916-42 from Bremanger died in WW2 when ship Feiøy with 8 Norwegian soldiers disappeared during a secret mission in Norway Jan. 1943.
He was a special-soldier in Kompani Linge and recieved Post Mortem the War Medal with star (with star means he was honored twice), info in Norwegian;
Fallen in WW2 from Bremanger, Johan Jørgensen Klungreset, see about 3/4 down here
