Tore, I actually also have not one DNA match from Norway on Ancestry.com - Is it not used in Norway? Which DNA tests are commonly used in Norway?

But, as I said above, Peder Olsen Nymoen appears to have a good share of descendants in a purely paternal line. Here is a page showing his son Andreas' offspring a little into the ineteen hundreds: https://ibb.co/ngVjyqG



Added all of the Smedshammer Family to my Family Tree. Also, added and messaged R. Smedshammer and added O. Smedshammer, both sons of Arvid. If we somehow can manage to get a DNA test done or someone in their family already did, that would be a big find.



Rune Smedshammer was still working at Ringerikes Blad in 2021 age 62! Search at www.1881.no for mailing address and phone. There are two Rune but take the one in Honefoss.

It seems to me that my mother told after her trip to Ringerike in 1986 that there were some local legends among the people there were some Finn ancestry on certain farms in Ringerike.

I believe Ftdna might be the most widely used dna test provider in Norway, perhaps partly due to Norgesprosjektet: https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/norway/about/background

It also seems to me that Norwegians tend to build their trees on MyHeritage rather than Ancestry; there are lots of commercials here for the first and none for the latter.

Thank you! I added him on Facebook and messaged him, but we will see if he responds!

Well, maybe we can confirm one of those legends! I will try my best!

Alright, Tore! As per your recommendation, I just ordered:

  • Big Y-700 $399.00
  • mtFull Sequence $130.00


Will keep you up to date on the stages!

DNA Test of my granduncle (great-grandson of Peter and Mathea) came back and listed Mathea's and Peter's Birth Locations! If that isn't a confirmation, then what is?

Peter in Norderhov, Buskerud County
Mathea in Ringsaker in Hedmark/Hedemarken
