Continuing from above because I send to earli, pushed the wrong buttom: .........farm Kaasa, but in one of the records I saw Kaasa unde Klevar. Slettemoen was a cotters place under Andingard/ Angaard in Hjuksebø. When Anne married she live on farm Trykkerud in Hjuksebø, daughter of Jacob Halvorsen Trykkerud.
A curiosity: There are two Anne Jacobsdatter, married, in 1865 census in Saude, the other Anne is my G. grandmother from Hem North of Klevar.
Why the link didn´t open I don´t know.

Kåre,
Direct links to the scanned images on the Digitalarkivet can be copied and pasted from the page from a display option available. At the top of the scanned image page is an option "Bildeinformasjon:" which is by default set to "Ingen". Change that and magic is available. Of the three options I like "Øverst" because it puts the additional information across the top of the page and is usually easier for me to see. Copy either the permanent page link on the line "Permanent sidelenke:" or the permanent image link "Permanent bildelenke:" given. The page link will bring the user to the exact same webpage location, with all the choices for viewing at ratios from 20 to 150%. The permanent image will display only a jpg image file with slightly more limited zoom capabilities.
The first line "Kildeinformasjon:" is a really nice summary of the source of the information and is nice to have for making detailed source citations, footnotes, etc.

Did I make that clear and understandable? Sorry I can't explain in Norwegian. My abilities in the language of my ancestors are limited to the very limited vocabulary of the old Norwegian parish records and small bits and pieces from bygdebøker (with the help of my much used and tattered Norwegian-English dictionary). I translate one word at a time and very slowly.
Although born in the American midwest, I now have a Texas accent myself and my feeble attempts to speak Norwegian usually brings those who can to their knees in hysterical laughter.

Scott mentioned Norse, Texas. You in Norway may be interested in that location. It is now considered a Texas Ghost Town and is a location that had disappeared from most maps. It was the area for the largest settlement of Norwegian emigrants in the state of Texas.

Personal note -- If you are NOT fond of lutefisk - avoid Bosque County Texas in December!! They send out loud invitations to all of us in Texas to join them for the feast and I hide here (in Austin Texas) hoping I won't have to face the "stuff".

Scott, you originally asked for a ship name your ancestors used. Thanks to Jan Peter's post, where they emigrated on 17 May 1883, Halvor and Karen Olson traveled on the S/S Geiser from Christiania, to Chrisiansand, to New York, and arrived June 2, 1883.

Halvor Olson age 25.
Olette do age24.
Ole do age 8 mo.

For ancestry.com users, they are image 16 of 20. I could not get the Search feature to find them. Had to use 1 page at a time.

Found Halvor(age52) and Karen(age 51) Olson in the 1910 Census, Minnesota, Yellow Medicine County, Friendship locality, with 6 children. Ole is absent.

Henry, age 23
Alfred age 20
Gina age 18
Hilda age 15
Clarence age 13
Elma age 7.

Henry and Alfred can also be found in the 1920 censuses.

Ole may have used the name Olaf Olson. The 1920 and 1930 census for Minnesota, Yellow Medicine County, Canby lists him as single, with a couple year variations in age and immigration.

I think your "Olson" relatives kinda took over Winnisheik, Iowa, and Yellow Medicine, Minnesota.

Lester and Jan Peter is right, their son Ole was born on farm Hellebæk in Øvre (Upper) Sandsvær municipality Sept. 14. 1882 and bap. in Hedenstad church:link on Nov. 5. Parents Halvor Olsen Sagfossen and Olette Helgesdatter (Hoff-Hov). Olette was bap in Efteløt church in Ytre (Outher) Sandsvær municipality in Efteløt church:link and Halvor was bap in Sauherad church in Saude/Sauherad municipality in Telemark County: Link
Kongsberd is a nearby town, that´s likely why they are listed from Kongsberg in th US records.

More look ups:
Sagfossen was a cotters place under Øvre (Upper) Kløvstad, close to a small river named Kløvstadelva (sag=sawmill, elv=river, foss = waterfall). The rent was 16 Spd/Speseidaler, 64 Kroner a year
Ole Olsen Kaasa (under Klevar) and Anne Jacobsdatter Slettemoen /Trykkerud under Angaard in Juxe /Hjuksebø area left Sauherad in Telemark county and moved to Sagfossen in Sandsvær municipality in Buskerud County in 1873. The houses are gone now, but the barn was moved to farm Hørtvedt in 1936 and the house/place to live was bought by a local museum, but is still only stored there. Halvor and Olette was renters on Hellebæk for a about a year until the emigration in 1883.
Halvor´s brother Jacob b. 1860 in Sauherad emigrated in 1884. dep. port Oslo, April 25. Dest: New York, ship Rollo (Wilson line).
Next emigration was 8 years later on march 25. 1892 when Halvor´s parents Ole Olsen Kaasa/Sagfossen and Anne Jacobsdatter and 5 children: Kjersti b. 1862 in Saude/Sauherad, Hans b. 1868 in Saude, John b. 1871 in Saude, Anne Marie b. 1874 in Saude-bap. in Efteløt in Sandsvær and Ingeborg b. 1877 on Sagfossen in Sandsvær leftSandsvær. (No dep. port or ship found on these people).
John returned later to take his engaged to be married, Mathilde Daleløkka with him back to America, but something happend between them and a album with a "music box" bought as a gift to Mathilde was instead given to his best friend Jon Olsen on Øvre Kjørstad and it is still kept on the farm. John returned to USA alone.
Source: Sandsværs Historie b. IV, p. 547.
Sandsværs Historie also has a photo of Maren Olettes parents, Helge Sjulsen Hov and Johanne Marie Andreasdatter Dalseie (cotters place owned by Dal) and the farms: Hov, Bø, Hvam and Øvre Kjørstad.

I had to go to a funeral in Norse, Tx the other day. I got a Norway cook book from the church and I hope I can make the futtiman cookeis. I hear they are great.

My father is John Imes. His parents, Carl Ims and Alma Eye (Oye) farmed in Minnesota Falls, Mn. His father's parents, Jonas and Anna (Mauritzen) Ims, farmed in Sioux Agency, Yellow Medicine County, Mn. My father is 90 years old (born 1924) and still golfs 18 holes. I am putting together a book that includes family portraits and information. Hey "Hopkins" I am curious how we are related.

In 2007 when this thread was active I thought I noticed a common link to my family tree in that Jonas Olson Ims great-great grandparents are probably a match with two of my ancestors from that fjord. So if that is the case we would be very distant cousins.

I did the Ancestry DNA test and found I'm only 31% Norwegian. I really thought I would be higher than that. But looking over all this information again is very exciting. A big thanks to everyone!
