dear folk. i have been following the forum since joining your group,and am mystified,that all the contributors are looking for forebears in America.according to Frederick Larson Lund,in his book"A Norwegian Waltz",approx.6000 Norwegians came to Australia,including 1800-2000 between 1870 and 1914.is there anyone in the that is related to them. thanks ross e

My grandmother's brother Ingvald (Roy) Kristian Rougseth emigrated to Australia during WW2. He was naturalized in 1960. Little is known about his life in Australia, but we know he died Kogarah, New South Wales 1973.
