Subject: SV: Tromsø reunion

Eyolf Steffensen, of Tromsø, asked, "When and what is this reunion exactly?"

The family reunion's common ancestor is Anders Andersen (1777-1842). He was married two times. First with Maria Birgitha Mortensdatter (1771-1812) and then with Elen Lavine Andersdatter (1795-1848). Maria had 6 children and Elen 10 children.

It is being held at the Scandic Hotell on July 15-18, 2004. Here is a link to the web site for the reunion:

Herbjørn Torheim and Jan Egil Jakobsen are two Norwegians on the reunion planning committee. Many of the descendants that emmigrated settled in Kandiyohi County, Minnesota, in the Lake Lillian area.
