I did this layout a long time ago.  It's my fathers mother and his aunt.  They both lived at Flisa in Åsnes and they had four children, each.  They even died before they turned 70 years old.  But I got to know them - a tiny bit - just for a few years - I wonder what if I had known them better - would I've then been doing geneology? Or... who knows... anyway I'm glad I met them.  Very...

My Grandmother, Mimi Martinsdaughter Langerud Nymoen, born 20. August 1898 at Snapholt, Hof in Solør, Åsnes County, Hedmark.

My Grandmothers sister, Margit Ovidia Martinsdaughter Langerud Linna, born 6. February 1903 at Flissundet, Åsnes County, Hedmark.

Margit married Olav Syversen Linna 12. July 1923 in Åsnes Church.  They got four children, Syver Asbjørn, Ole Martin, Eva Marie and Bjørn Harald. 

Margit Ovida died at Flisa 17. February 1971 and her housbond Syver died 6. November 1941.  They are both burried at Åsnes Curch Cemetary.

My Grandmother Mimi married my Grandfather Einar Karlotson Nymoen 31. October 1925.  My Grandfather, Einar was born 4. September 1898 at Råberget, Hof in Solør, Åsnes County, Hedmark. 

Mimi and Einar had four children, Marit, Inger Marie, Ola Martin and Eivind.  Marit and my father are not with us anymore, Marit died 4. May 1995 and my father passed away 19. March 2005.

Mimi died 24. Februar 1965 and Einar died 1. September 1986.  They are burried at Åsnes Church Cemetary.

Hipp Hipp Hurra! It's Norways Birthday.

Today is Norways Birthday.  Our Constitution Day.  Congratulation!
"A day to honor freedom, our rich heritage and our common bond as citizens of this great country"  I borrowed this sentence - It says it all.

Nichlasen is in Oslo with his father - Varg and I are home alone - doing nothing!  This is a day to reflect over our freedom and to celebrate.  We the Norwegian people have a lot to be proud of and to remember. 

Today is The day when everybody! talks about the weather - here on HedEmarken it's grey with some ray of sunshine - it's 13 Celsius pluss and 55 Farenheit.

We do have bunads / national costumes from nearly every part of Norway.  This is the Solør Odal Bunad.  Even though I don't live in Solør anylonger - I'm Solung in my heart!  So it was easy to choose which bunad I should wear! 

This layout I did some years ago. It's not the layout you should focus on - but the picture.

It's my aunt Randi waving the Norwegian Flag in Kaffegata - The Street of Flisa - on 17th of May 1941.  My Grandfather Simon commanded his children out in the snow - with the flag - and he did take some marvelous pictures this day - even tough The World War II was going on in Norway.

The handsome young man is my uncle Johan - he passed away in 2004.  You can see the famouc birches in Kaffegata behind my mother Grethe.

This is my Grandfather - Simon Andreas Johannesson Holter - 1898-1969.  He dared in 1941.  I think he belived in freedom for everyone, he was strict - very! and he was conservative...I think.

Have a nice day - where ever you are and enjoy...Hipp Hipp Hurra!
