About Odd-Steinar's Viking Saga

For å lese på NORSK!! Norsk skrift er i rødt. Se lengere ned.

Unfortunatly this website does not support the Norwegian letters Æ Ø or Å at the beginning of surnames so I have had to convert the names beginning with Ø to O and the names beginning with Å to Aa. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause when searching for names.
At some time or other we all wonder where we came from and I have made this site to help me document my ancestors.My ancestors came from Norway, the land of the midnight sun and Vikings. Hence the name 'Viking Saga'. If you are also looking for your roots, you will find links here that may be useful in your search. If you have any information on my ancestors or you notice any mistakes, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would like to state here that not all persons on this webpager are related to me but may be related to someone who is related to me through marriage. I dedicate this Web site to my mother, Oddbjørg Oline Dybvad, who died on 28 January 1995. A special tribute to my Great Grandmother, Benjamine Kristine Olsdatter, who, because of her poverty and hardships was a great economist. For Christmas presents she would knit mittens with two thumbs. This was so that when you rowed a boat and wore out the palm of the mitten you could turn it over and you would have another mitten with a new thumb and palm. Bless her soul. I would like to thank all persons who have helped me make this Web site possible. If any family member has a photo or anything else they wish to add to this site please contact myself. My name is Odd-Steinar Dybvad Raneng and I was born on the 15th April 1946 in Stjørdal Norway. I left Norway with my father for Australia at the age of eight. In 1957 I returned home for a three months visit to family and friends. Through misfortune I eventually lost all contact with Norway. In October 1999 I was surfing the web when I came upon a web page from a sports club from my home town Stjørdal. I wrote a small message in the guestbook asking for help in tracing my family. I shortly received a reply from Jon Eivind Schefte who was able to trace all my family that was still alive. Through him I have been able to contact my closest relatives, who by the way, had been searching for me for many years. Since then Jon Eivind and I have become great friends through the internet. Thank you Jon Eivind for all your help. So I say to all those people out there who may be looking for lost family and freinds, there is always help out there even when all seems lost.

Jeg har bygd denne Websiden for å dokumentere min aner også for å hjelpe andre som leiter etter sin slekt.Mine aner er fra Trøndelag og Nordland. Jeg har brukt navnet Viking Saga i det håp at jeg en dag finner min vei til Vikingene. Jeg har fått mye hjelp fra både Stjørdal og Lånke Historielager igjennom bøker og bilder. Hvis du også søker etter dine røtter så er det mange lenker som kan være nyttige her på min lenkeside. Jeg er medlem av Tronder-L og bruker Digitalarkivet til stor nytte. Jeg vil først si at ikke alle navn som er på denne websiden er i direkte slekt med meg men kan være i slekt igjennom ekteskap eller ektefelle. Hvis du har noen informasjon på mine aner eller merker noen feil, venneligst kontakte meg.
Jeg dediserer denne Websiden til min mor, Oddbjørg Oline Dybvad, som døde den 28 januar 1995.
En spesiell hylle til min oldemor, Benjamine Kristine Olsdatter, som var i sin tid fattig og hadde et hardt og vanskelig liv og kansje derfor ble en flink økonom. For julepresanger strikket hun votter med to tommeltotter. Dette var så når en rodde båt og håndflaten av vottene ble utslitt så kunne en bare snu votten og bruke den andre tommeltotten og en helt ny handflate. Klok jente min oldemor!! Hvis det er noen familiemedlem som har bilder eller noe annet de vil vise på websiden så gjerne kontakte Webmastern, som så klart er meg selv. Jeg heter Odd-Steinar Dybvad Raneng og var født den 15de april 1946 på Værnes i Stjørdal nord Trøndelag. Når jeg var 8 år reiste jeg fra Norge til Australia med min far. I 1957 kom jeg tilbake til Norge på besok. Senere, igjennom hendelser så mistet jeg all kontakt med min familie i Norge. I oktober 1999 var jeg på internettet når jeg kom på Stjørdal Jakt og Fiskeforenings side. Jeg skrev en liten beskjed i gjesteboka deres for å se om det var noen som kjente til min familie i Norge. Jeg fikk to svar, den ene fra Jon Eivind Schefte som da fant hele min familie som var fremdeles levende. Igjennom ham har jeg fått kontakt med min nærmeste slekt i Norge som hadde også søkt etter meg i mange år. Siden den tid har Jon Eivind og jeg blit gode venner på internettet og jeg møtte ham i 1999 når jeg besøkte min familie i 2000. Takk Jon Eivind for all din hjelp. Så jeg sier til alle dere som søker etter slekt og kjente, når alt ser håpløst ut så er det altid noen som kan hjelpe. Aldri gi opp! Copyright Odd-Steinars Viking-Saga © 2007.
