Ole Olsen Mellem Grue/Brandval /Hedmark Church book 8, page 81, entry 81, shows Ole Olsen Mellem was born 2 Feb 1853 and baptized 17 Feb. 1853. Son of Ole Johansen Kopmoen/Mellem and Olea Eriksdatter Skrigerud. Brandval Parish records, FHC microfilm 307244, p. 348. These records show that Ole Olsen Mellem left Brandval with the family of his sister, Maren Olsdatter Mellem, who was married to Peder Olsen Korsmoe. Ole Olsen Mellem shows up in the fall of 1873 as a witness of the baptism of his brother Erik's son in Decorah, Iowa. What he did next I've not discovered, but he is buried in Memorial Cemetery, Grand Forks, ND. The ND Death Certificates Index shows he died 12 Feb. 1943. (Erik's son Louis Mellem and Louis' son Walter Mellem are also buried in this cemetery. Erik Mellem is buried in Lutheran Cemetery in Decorah and the Korsmoes are buried in Eau Claire, WI.)

Hunting Passenger Lists

The information in the Norway Heritage Project passenger list database mainly covers New York lists 1828 - 1850, and Canadian lists 1865 - 1875. In some cases information about Norwegian emigrants has also been added from other sources like newspaper announcements, voyage accounts or other random records. There are also entries from the Norwegian Police Emigration Records. For more information read the article
