My mother, Lill-Aase Thingvold, is from Kristiansund No. Her grandfather imported cod and sold guano. My grandfather, Hakon Thingvold, died in 1970. Most of the family left the city after th ecity was destroyed in WW II. My family is very private, since your family emigrated in the 1920s, I am not sure that there is much of connection; however, we have records of the Thingvolds and Losetts which date to the 1400s- during 600 years- there was only one Englishman and a German in the 1870s-everyone else is Norwegian (not even Swedish). By the way the name,"Aase" means Goddess in ancient Norsk. Thingvold means parliament hill. I do not recognise the name "Scrhraa" but "Aase" is rare and it seems that we may be related. However, that may be cold comfort if you do not speak or understand Bokmal Norwegian or Danish- I doubt a living Thingvold (other than me) will be of any help.
