CONCLUSION: If you can trace people back far enough, descendants from the
same areas tend to be related somehow!!!!

After finding all the above in Vegaarshei --and there's more yet to be
found--I would suggest you obtain a copy of each of the Vegaarshei books as
well. (Rent, then previously mentioned; or, if you can find
them!!!!, you could always buy copies.) Then, on a cold winter's night, when
you have nothing else to do, you could work on translating to
English...especially Vegaarshei i Eldre Tid. There's a bunch of juicy
stories in there, I'm thinking....I did work on a few of them, so far, but
there's lots more.
Plus, you may want to get the Gjerstad, when you get around
to it, you'll be able to keep yourself VERY busy! Enjoy!!
