I spent a lot of time last night on the internet trying to recall my home turf in southern Minnesota, regaining familiarity and realizing I know a lot of places there. I haven't been there in a long time. I was also out on the Freeborn Historical website and my attempts at trying to locate other places to obtain birth and death certificates caused me write over twenty cities down. That is, places I was familiar with. I finally happened on a site for 'Ancestory' when typing in Edward Larson with 'Alma' a location in Spink Union South Dakota USA. Now I've never heard that there was a South Dakota location for my side of the family under Christian Haagenson Trogstad, or Edward Larson, though Hagbert 'Haagenson' Trogstad's descendants prevail from there. A great many live in the South Dakota area. My search found:
Edward Larson, b: 1860, Male, White, Birthplace: Norway, married to: Alma, Home in 1930 Spink Union South Dakota USA, Dwelling #144, Family Number 144, Home: Owned, Radio set - yes (I do not know was that means), Lives on Farm: Yes, Age at First marriage: 22, Attended School: No, Able to Read and Write: Yes, Father's Birthplace: Norway, Mother's Birthplace: Norway, Language Spoken: Norwegian, Naturalization: Un, Speak English: Yes, Occupation: Farmers, Industry: General Farm, Class of Worker: Employer. Household Members Age: Edward Larson 70, Mary Larson 57, Ludwig Larson 37, Edward Larson 36, Sofia Larsen 34, Ha(u)lmer Larson 29, George Larson 28, William Larson 22. Of course, it was late and I neglected to write the url down. There are several reasons why I think this might be the individual I am looking for. I sorta recall my dad mentioning a 'Ludwig' and a George. And then of course that the name Alma is attached to it. I haven't had a chance to look at the computer until just this late hour and thought to check your response and send this. Thanks for the timely feedback. jodi



Radio was the "hot" new technology in 1930 and the US government wanted to know who had a radio.

Good to have some additional names to look for. Much easier to find a family than one lone individual.

Here is a link to the Edward Larson in Union county, SD in 1930:

Same family in 1910 and Edward's brother Matthias is living with them:

Probably not the right Edward Larsen but the birth record from FAG is correct.

I have to ask about copyright of the forum. I have not obtained permission to do this, and just realized that there is need for permission. I copied the above information with 'links and reference' to this site, what do I do to make this correct for use? What may I do to receive permission for use of the information?

On Family Search website they complied quite a few different profiles from census, and related them to each other which provided me a clear connection for a family for Anthon Larson, but still the name Edward was not listed, only Anthon or Anton in relation to his family. Only for his wife Alma Ayars, and their children was there and association to Edward in the Census. When I began to view the 'loose' (my term) profiles they just fell into place, and I see today on Digitalarkivit that they are listed under the Skonhovd, but I did not know what that meant. I was looking continuously under Kristiana, but it looks like this Vardal, Oppland is now coming up. Also, there is listing to Vestre Toten Oppland. I am trying my best to familiarize myself with these names/locations for clarity.

Try going to familysearch.org
Pull down the search menu options and choose to use the Research WIKI.
When that comes up type in Norway as the place.
You can see a map which shows the layout as to where Oppland is in relationship to Oslo (Kristiania).
Click on Oppland on that map and it will take you to detail for that fylke (province/county).
Then you can see the districts within Oppland on that page - note Vardal and Vestre Toten.
The WIKI will probably also give you more detail about each of the districts.

Skonhovd was the name of a farm.

Hello. I removed all of the forum that I put on Wikitree, and only have the links to the Norway Heritage forum for sources. Easy enough to do. Hope that resolves the concerns. I did not even think about it when I did it and I was trying to respect your input into the search by copying the forum and providing the link to your website.
