How we all got here...

Ole and Kari Gullingsrud were both born and raised in Nes, Buskerud, Norway.  Nes is located in the southeast section of the country and is about 100 miles northwest of Olso.  They were married in 1848 and had all of their children while living in Norway.  Their oldest son, Thomas, was also married there.  The four oldest sons: Thomas, Elling, Ole and Herbrand all left Norway before the rest of the family.  In May of 1880 Ole, Kari and their five remaining children arrived in the U.S.  See the census records page for places where each of them lived.  Below is a table showing only the children of Ole & Kari who were married and their children. On a side note, Kari's brother Ole Ellingson also came to Minnesota and settled in Kandiyohi County. Not sure about any other siblings. I believe all Ole's siblings stayed in Norway, however I do know that some of his sister Astrid's children settled in Norman County. They have the name Reiersgaard.
