Wordless Wednesday -- Burud Farm in Baerum

Burud Farm in Baerum, Norway.  Several generations of ancestors lived on this farm.  My third great-grandparents, Kristoffer Pedersen and Ellen Hansdatter, had several children while living here.  Martin, Hans, and Haakine Christopherson eventually emigrated to Salt Lake City.  Their sister, Jonette Kristoffersdatter (Norwegian spelling) stayed in Norway, and she was is my great-great grandmother.

Part of Burud Farm is now a lovely golf course.

  2. Great pics. While researching my last name (Burud) I came across this post. I've traced my father's side to Buskerud and mother's side to Alesund and Telemark. Do you have any other info on the origins of this farm? Thanks!
