Any advice much appreciated, I am new at this :) I will look into the links you've provided- thanks! I was unaware
of the free search sites.

Is it likely they named the farm "Birkedstrandmyren" after their last name Bjerkestrand? Or was it common to take the last name Bjerkestrand because the farm was named such? (does that make sense? sorry!)

The family rumor is that his last name was Peterson but that the farm was named "Bjerkestrand" so he changed his last name to "Bjerkestrand" when he emmigrated to America. So then when searching would his parents last names be "Peterson"? All stuff for me to check into.

Thanks for all the info!
