I'd be willing to bet that the two Vik lines you mention ARE related to each other in some way, even though that may not be why they also became neighbours in the US. It has been my experience that almost everyone in the Vik area was somehow related to each other, event though the relationship may have been remote. Chances are I have people from both lines in my own database.
and I've been going through another lineage for the husband of one of the sisters of my maternal grandmother in Vik, Sogn og Fjordane (new info I just found tonight: one of the children by her first marriage was a twin I'd not seen recorded before, and now I have info on him, and, sadly, his death not long after the birth - the other one lived to adulthood - but his father died when he and his older sister were toddlers, his mother married his father's brother, and he and siblings and new step-sister and parents emigrated right after her birth - I now have images for marriage, birth, and death info for all of that data - the rest of the
family was born in the US, and one of the sons born in the US married my grandmother's sister). I have a separate family to do research on who were also from Vik, Sogn og Fjordane, not related, but they ended up being neighbors eventually in MN (according to plat maps for the township).
