The greatest part of life is to realise and appreciate life as it is. One of my ways of doing so is to appriciate my ancestors and what they did – which again somehow resulted in myself… The genealogy part of AkkuratD has focus on both directions in my family tree. Going back in time finding my anscestors is one task – but perhaps even more interesting is the task to find relatives still alive either it is my grand-dad’s sister-in-law’s grandchildren – or my cousine.
My ancestors originates basically from the area around Bergen (north, south, west and east of), i.e. Lindås, Ytre Sogn, Evanger, Austevoll. These are places where there are available quite some documentation – fortunately, at least back in to the late 1600 and early 1700. Therefore I have quite easily found information about my ancestors, but the registration and verification work is of course both time-consuming and often not so easy.
