Surname Saturday

Today I am going to link my family back to One of the more recent immigrant families in my family.

1) Me, Betty-Lu

2) James Edward Baker Jr - born in North Dakota
     Elizabeth Joan Bionaz - born in California

3) James Edward Baker Sr - born in North Dakota
     Lucy Mary Huyck - born in Wisconsin

4) Henry Austin Baker Sr - born in Ontario Canada
    Anna Christofferson - born in Minnesota

5) Erland Christofferson - born in Lesja, Oppland, Norway
    Elizabeth (Syversdatter) Haugen - born Lesja, Oppland, in Norway
*Erland and Elizabeth married in Minnesota

6) Christoffer Erlandsen - born in Lesja, Oppland, Norway
    Aase Oldsdatter - born in Lesja, Oppland, Norway

6) Syver Syverson Haugen - born in Lesja, Oppland, Norway
    Marit Hansdatter - born in Lesja, Oppland, Norway

I will need think of a way to continue the Norwegian line, Norway had 2 naming system:
  1. Patronymics
  2. Farm Names 
Sometimes both names are used and the farm name can change as they moved from place to place.
