Classification: Query
Surnames: hoystad, gunstad, steig, kongsli & oppland
My grandfather & great grandfather's names were Hoystad (changed spelling to Hoistad), but prior to that & moving to America the names before that were Gunstad, Steig & Kongsli as far back as about 1600. Erik Johannesen Sygard KONGSLI, who died in or about 1676, married to Guri Sveinsdatter ROLSTAD(died: about 1670) are my Great(9) Grandfather & grandmother. I would like to go back further & hear that we might originate from OPPLAND. I checked out the name OPPLAND & was able to date back some persons back to 100 AD, but don't know if I am related to any of them. Am I a dreamer or is it possible to trace one's ancestry back that far - an additional 500 years. If anyone knows how I could research this, please let me know.
