GENEALOGY in Rukkedalen.
When I first started searching for my family I thought it would be fast! But after a lot of reading and searching - the family lines is rather difficult. I need to say that looking for my family here in Rukkedalen is very easy. I need to look in the church book for Nes only. This is great help - I know that most of the family is located in one place only.
But when you have so small area you need to start all over again very often. Why? Because you are getting involved in more and more families. So now I am down to the conclution that I need to write all names from this area. Easy job - no - it is very time consuming.
I will be makeing more and more family trees on my homepage. I don't see now how many there will be. But to my guess there will be several. So don't miss anything - be looking - and most of all. If you can help me out in any way PLEASE tell me your informations. I might be the help for you in return.
