I am trying to find my Great Great Grandfather Halvor Tangen's family. He was born Halvor Tangen abt 1863 in Norway (not sure of the city). He immigrated abt 1885 and he married in 1896. His wife's name was Emelia Andreason/Andresson, when they married he took her last name. The family from that point went by Andreason/Andresson which later changed to Anderson. The only information I have of his ealy life is from census records. I haven't been able to find out who his parents or siblings are.
Halvor and Emelia had several children Esther, Andres, Christian, Sena, Ole, Martha, Martinus, Magnus (my great grandfather), Earl and Elna.
Halvor lived mainly in Clearwater Co, MN. His children mainly stated in Minnesota, my grandfather Magnus (Halvor's son) moved to Polk Co, MN and then eventually to Washington state.
If anything rings a bell, I would love to compare notes!
