When reading through the local history books for Meldal - hundreds of names with the word 'Amerika' next to them start appearing. People who left their ancestral Norway seeking a new future in the mythical America. So far from home - so far from the people they had always loved and known. Can you tell us what happened next - link the individual stories in new world with the family saga of the old?

The Meldal saga
In 1946, the municipality of Meldal (Sør-Trøndelag, Norway) commissioned Nils Lykkja to write the saga of the local farms – from the earliest records, mainly from the 1600s and onwards, to the then present day. Ten years later, in 1956, the first volume of the saga was published. Volume 2 came in 1959 and volume 3 in 1960.

Nils Lykkja takes us on a fascinating journey – from farm to farm and from family to family - families who may have been in this region since the days of the vikings and before.

Amerika - building a bridge between the old and the new world
One thing that captures the reader’s eye is the word “Amerika” written after so many of the names listed in the book. What happened to all these individuals - can we today tell the real stories behind the dates and the names, make them come alive, connect the saga of the old country with that of the new?

They say that we live for as long as we are remembered. Let's remember them all and thus make them live on through our memories.

Maybe you can tell the stories of what happened next? Do you have old photos that you would like to share along with the written stories? Why not register as a user and write your own saga-chapters. If you need inspiration on what to write - why not take a look at “History of emigration from Nordmøre” relating to one of the neighbouring districts.

Contact us - skriv gjerne på norsk
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any additonal information, photos, comments - or more names to add. Skriv gjerne på norsk da dette saga-kapittelet er skrevet på engelsk for å kunne nå lesere i USA.

So far we have added the names from the first of three volumes. All farms and tenant farms listed below have a narrative in the book, written by Nils Lykkja.

Lo (Nystuggu) gnr 7 bnr 1 | Loshagen Tenant farm (page 87)
Rasmus Jonson b. 1857 (tailor like his father) and his wife Karen Åsgjelen b. 1861 emigrated to America with their family in 1907. Children: Johanna b. 1881 - died young | Gjertrud b. 1883 married to Anders Espen from Orkdal | Jon b. 1885 | Ingeborg b. 1888 | Ole b. 1890 | Berit b. 1894 | Gurine b. 1897 | Johan b. 1900

Interestingly, we see from libertyellisfoundation.org that Jon emigrated the year before the parents and the rest of the children: John Rasmussen Lo (20), arriving at Ellis Island 29 May 1906 on the ship 'United States', departure port Kristiania (today Oslo), Norway. His destination is listed as Tacoma, Washington state and the person who paid for his ticket and who he is travelling to looks like 'cousin Ole Takold'.

From familysearch.org we find it recorded that Rasmus Loe (50) immigrated to Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States in 1907. Arriving aboard the ship 'Saxonia'. With him on the boat was his wife Karen (46) and the children Ole (17), Beret (11 1/2), Gurine (10), Johan (8). Their destination is listed as Tacoma, Washington state.

From libertyellisfoundation.org we see that Ingeborg travelled as Ingeborg R. Loe (19) on 'C.F. Tietgen' - meaning she was on the same passage as her neighbours - the family of Even and Berit Lo (see below for details) and not her own. However, her destination and travel arrangements were the same as for Jon - 'ticket paid for and travelling to cousin Ole Takold'. As Tacoma and Woodburn is not too far apart it is reasonable to think that she travelled with Even and Berit across the American continent to get to her destination.

In the 1910 US census we find them again as the family Loe - now all together: Robert (53), Carrie (49) - and John (24), Inga L (22), Ole (20), Bertha (16), Gena (12), John (9). Location is Tacoma Ward 5, Pierce, Washington, United States.

Lo (Oppigard) gnr 11 bnr 1 (page 91)
Even Arntson b. 1850 (blacksmith and farmer like his father) and his wife Berit Halvardsdatter Vormdal b. 1867 emigrated to America with their family in 1907. Children: Anne b. 12 September 1890 | Arnt b. 22 May 1892 | Ingeborg b. 14 May 1894 | Hanna b. 28 March 1896 | Eli b. 12 April 1898 | Einar b. 4 October 1900 | Anna (according to Nils Lykkja - date of birth unknown)

From libertyellisfoundation.org we see that the family arrived in New York listed as Even Arentzen (misspelt as Knutzen) Loe (57), Beret (39), Anne (16), Arnt (14), Ingeborg (11), Hanna (10), Eli (9), Einar (6). They arrived at Ellis Island aboard the ship 'C.F. Tietgen' on 24 April 1907 departing from Kristiania (today Oslo), Norway. Destination seems to be Woodburn, Oregon. The family paid for their own tickets and the person they were travelling to looks like 'brother-in-law Mr Wormdahl' - so probably Berit's brother.

In the 1910 US census we find the family again as the family Loe: Even A (60), Berreth (44), Ernt (17), Enda (15), Hanna (14), Ella (12), Einer (9) and Emma B (2) (born in Oregon)

Their location in 1910 is Needy, Clackamas, Oregon, United States.
