More Family report updates
During the last six months we have received a lot of new updates from family members in the US and Canada. The first came from Kristi Anderson who lives in Edmonton AB. She has reported on Lars Stabel Lillejord’s eldest daughter, Lorense. She lived in Norway and had her family there. However, her husband died and all the family left Norway and joined Lorense’s parents and siblings in Canada. Here she remarried and had three more children, among them Kristi’s grandfather. On the photo we see Lorense’s grandchildren David and Ireene, flanking the great great grandchildren Jenna and Kyrie-Lynn.
The next contribution came from Karlyn Ramsay. She lives in Plymouth MA and is a great great granddaughter of Martine Lillejord, the youngest of Hans and Margrete Lillejord’s children. She is eager to visit Norway and see people and places there.
The last contribution came from Jordan Michael Beriault. He is of the Peder Johan line and has given information on Peder’s daughter Lillie Othilda’s descendents (The Lund’s).
Thank you all three for bringing the Family report forward. You’ll find the Report here.
The Report has once more been modified and extended. The last extension is a result of information from Hege Anita Andreassen and Christel Skavhaug on the Hanna Pauline and the Sakri-Olai line, both on the Norwegian part of the family.
Christel has reported on the family of Anna Sakariasdatter, who moved to the Saltstraumen area near the city of Bodø. By the way; Saltstraumen is the world’s strongest tidal current.
The report has now been modified and extended from 51 to 52 pages. The last extension is a result of information from Tina Mallory on the Lars Stabel line, more exactly Alice Lillejord/Earl Colbow’s family.
The photo shows Earl and Alice in 1963, attending their daughter Diana’s marriage. Submittet by Tina Mallory. Thank you so much, Tina.
Latest! Debbie Booth & Katherina Luneng have supported the web with some updates on the Luneng Family. Thank you!
During a vist of Norwegian family members in Lillejord areas of Minnesota, more descendants of Hans Martinus were detected, especially the Forkrud family in the Sacred Heart area.

Spring 2013 a descendant of Lars Stabel’s eldest daughter, John Einan, visited Beiarn. He has delivered new information on the Einan family. John didn’t know that Einan was the name of Lars Stabel’s homestead in Norway. He was rather surprised to meet people living at Einan today, bearing the same surname as himself.

We have also received small deliveries of family information from many other branches of the Lillejord people. In total more than 5 pages.
There might still be some errors in the list, and a lot of missing information. If you find information in this list that you definitely know is wrong, or at least are pretty sure that it is, please inform us by e-mail and we’ll check out the information. When we have adequate proof to concider the information truthworthy, we’ll correct the report.
We are trying to present the best and most complete report at the Reunion and are asking for your assistance.
Thank you for your contribution
