- 228. [ROOTS-L] Norweigan ancestors 
My great grandparents Anna Ever son and Elias Paulson emigrated from Norway
in 1881 when my grandmother was a toddler. I have been told that he was
hired to accompany a group of emigrants here as he spoke English. He was
supposed to have been a professor in Norway and apparently worked for the emigration
office in Galveston after their arrival as he spoke several languages. Does
anyone know why groups of people emigrated from Norway and how I might find
out if this story is true. They went

did change it in 1943 thru the courts in Ohio.
I also found out that my paternal grandfather was a name changer!!! He was
born Charles Juengst but raised by a family named Wilson as their grandson.

- There is a Rootsweb list for memories like those
being discussed here. It will be of interest to
those who want to share and archive their
recollections. That mailing list was specifically
set up for the discussion and sharing of
information regarding such lives and personal
memories so that descendants could locate and learn
more about the personal side of our lives besides
names and dates. The list also provides a place to
remember family members who are gone from our

You sort of lucked out since he would have been born in about 1895 (WWI

the Draft Card separately.
If you had any Knight's from the North Carolina area let me know and I'll
see if I can find a census or two.

- OK, then, it looks like we all agree that true is better than false and
documented is better than undocumented, but that something is better than
nothing at all.
As a matter of fact, I am wrestling with this exact issue right now. I
have an ancestor who was documented as being at Jamestown, Virginia.
However, there is no proof of who his father was, just family lore that he
was an English soldier in the service of the Low Countries. Who knows if
it is true or not, but it's someplace to start.

I believe you are both right and wrong here, and clarification would be good
to prevent others from getting an incorrect impression.
When you post a tree to RootsWeb you can always update or remove it. As far
as I know, that has always been the case. Ancestry.com does, however, have
access to that database and reserves the right to use it as they see fit.
They did use the RootsWeb trees among others to build the computer-compiled
