This is my great grandfather, Laurits Jacobson Aadland Nygaard. He is with his parents and his siblings and uncle. Laurits and his brother, Martin, took the last name Nygaard as did his father. The family settled in Sparta, Chippewa Co., MN. Later Laurits and Martin moved to the Pierpont area of South Dakota. Laurits married Anne Martha Aadland. He became a successful farmer and had 6 children out of 12 that survived him. His oldest daughter, Anna Marie Nygaard married Haakon Tollefson and Laurits resided with them after his wife passed away. He and his family are buried outside of Pierpont, SD at the Skudesness Church.

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
