My great grandfather worked in greymouth New Zealand for 2 yrs somewhere between late1860s to early 1870 He had changed his norwegian name to Andrew Rodrom in Australia by 1875 we are trying to trace him to find out about our norwegian ancestors would anyone have any lists of norwegians at that time

Hi

At page 6 it is written 1834. He was 72 years old in 1906 when this was written = born 1834.

If you search "Norway, Select Baptisms, 1634-1927" on Ancestry.com for male named And* born 15 May 1834 you find only five candidates

You can see that none are born in Trondheim and none have a father named Gabriel.

Now the database for Ancestry.com is probably not complete but it does cover a large part of the births in Norway at that time..

And he writes he was born in TRONDHJEM which is an older spelling of todays TRONDHEIM.

You can also use the NHDC Census data base to search the 1865 Census as a way to try and determine if what you think you know about Andrew is close to correct.

NHDC

In the 1865 Census there is no farm called Rodrum listed. There are a large number of farms that start with either Rod or Rød but no farms called Rodr or Rødr as a start of a longer farm name.

The closest name would likely be Rodum or Rødum.

Rødum farm is in Oppland and thus not close to Trondheim and Rodum is in Nord-Trøndelag which is at least close to Trondheim but of the 32 people living in houses with that farm name there is no Anders or other name similar and no Gabriel.

If you use the Advanced search you can query first name And* born in Trondheim or Trondhjem and birth between 1833 to 1835. There are no candidates found. Even using Trond* to broaden the search finds no candidates

If you broaden the search to And* male born in Trond* between 1830 to 1840 you find 7 candidates.

Trondheim Andreas Brun Trondenæs MARRIED
Trondheim Andreas Olaus Myhre Trondhjem FOUND IN 1875 CENSUS
Trondheim Andreas Martin Wærdahl Trondhjem FOUND IN 1875 CENSUS
Trondheim Anders Solberg Trondhjem MARRIED
Trondheim Andreas Vold Trondhjem OF INTEREST
Trondheim Andres Løkke Trondhjem OF INTEREST
Trondheim Andres Præsthus Trondhjem MARRIED

Andreas Vold in 1865 Census born in 1839

Link

Probably him in 1885 Census

Link

Andreas Løkke in 1865 Census born in 1839

Link

Mother Sofie Løkke in 1875 Census, no Andreas present

1875
