Welcome to our English home-page.

We have made these English pages so it may be easier for non-Norwegian to read our genealogical publishing.
Our hope is that it may be a help for someone to find ancestors from Norway.
Maybe you can find some of your ancestors among ancestors on our Family, Intermarriage or Other sortet by geographic area.

Who are we?

My name is Geir-Arne Helgeland and my wife is Jofrid (Nåden).
We have four children:

  1. Sven Martin married Vibeke, daugther of Else (Grannes) and Helge Moen.
  2. Alf Sigurd married Anne, daugther of Liv Andersen (Andersen) and Tor Njærheim.
  3. Arnfrid married Johannes, son of Judith (Hommeland) and Sigmund Bjelland.
  4. Øyvind married Mariann, daugther of Anne Brit (Lurås) and Knut Hagen.

We live in Norway at the town Bryne in county Rogaland. The nearest big town is Stavanger.
From Stavanger many people emigrated to America in the year of late 1800 and in the early 1900.
We have many relatives in America, but we only know a few of them. Maybe this side can help us to get contact with more of them.

I trust in: 2 Cor.12:9:
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
