  1. I was searching the net and found your Norwegian Family Tree when looking up Anders Halvorsen Siljan*. I am directly related and was wondering if we could communicate about our families. Here is my line in the family:

    Lars Olssøn LUNDE (1686 – 1755)
    is my 5th great grandfather
    Karen LARSDATTER (1718 – )
    Daughter of Lars Olssøn
    Halvor Neilsen SILLIEN (1744 – 1821)
    Son of Karen
    Anders Halvorsen HEGNA (1786 – 1853)
    Son of Halvor Neilsen
    Halvor Andersen HEGNA (1823 – 1896)
    Son of Anders Halvorsen
    Hans Jacob HEGNA (1871 – 1928)
    Son of Halvor Andersen
    Eunice Mary HEGNA (1923 – 2000)
    Daughter of Hans Jacob
    Pamela Jean Robinett (married name-Stegmaier)
    I am the daughter of Eunice Mary

    Hope we can connect and share information. I would love to talk with you further, and to find out the mystery between Sillien and Siljan with the last names.

    Best regards,
    Pamela Stegmaier

  3. Lisa, was doing a bit of googling and found some of your posts about the Truby-Stalnaker connection. I may have some info that could clear things up!
