In Reply to: Elius (Elias) Nilson Tweten- looking for his parents' information by Marshall Hammer of 17693

I found a record of him leaving Oslo in 1907 with destination listed as Chicago. It also says he was an evangelist.

Martin Elius Nilsen Tveten
b. 18 May 1888 Bamble, Telemark

His baptism:
Martin Elius
b. 18 May 1888
father: Nils Peter Knutsen Tveten
mother: Jakobine Mathilde Eliasdtr.

Parents marriage:
Date: 19 Nov 1880
Bamble, Telemark
Groom: Niels Peter Knutsen Tveten
Birthdate: 3 Aug 1853
Groom's father: Knut Larsen
Bride: Jakobine Matilde Eliasdtr.
Birthdate: 8 Oct 1854
Bride's father: Elias Kristensen (Bresand?)

I found these on the Digitalarkivet website.

From FamilySearch (

Niels Peter
b. 3 Aug 1853
chr. 11 Sept 1853 Bamble, Telemark
Father: Knut Larsen Tveten
Mother: Marthe Pernille Jensdtr.

Jakobine Matilde
b. 8 Oct 1854
chr. 19 Nov 1854 Bamble, Telemark
Father: Elias Kristensen Vaagøen

There is a bygdebok for Bamble which probably has lots of information on the ancestors of these people.

I'm not related.
