I´ll keep all options open, I think these records need more investigation.
I´m a bit confused but not surprised.

At least your Aad/Odd Torstensen seems to be no problem Renee, he was son of Torsten Bergesen and Brita Odsdr. Ur, the main goal for this topic.

Perhaps a look up in these books for Hjelmeland could came up with some answers?

Thank you very much Kare,
This has all helped me to at least have a direction. I couldn't have done all of this by myself.
Many blessings,
Renee

You are welcome Renee,
it´s been a pleasure to help you with genealogy.

If anything about names and numbers should be confusing don´t hesitate to come back to Norway Heritage, I am sure you will get help here.

Renes, I am interested in anything you know about the crossing to America in 1854. My great great grandfather emigrated that same year from Savanger to Chicago. His wife and youngest daughter died during the voyage.
