These were my great-great grandparents, Helge Andreas Norem and Eli Knutson. They lived in Haugesund Norway and had at least thee children, my Great-great-grandfather had an older brother who settled in Milwaukee Wisconsin before extending an invitation to my GGfather, who migrated in 1886. When Helge Norem died in 1885, Eli emigrated to Milwaukee with her daughter to live near her boys. Helge had sailed the seven seas many times but was laid to rest in his native Norway.
Anyone have anything to add?
Nils (my Great-grandfather) met Anne Marie Neilsen, who was from Kristiansand, Norway and was brought to the USA by a wealthy Norwegian family in Milwaukee. That is where Nils met Anne Marie in church. The rest is my family history.
