Hi,

Mr Bert Iverson moved from Norway to the States - or his parents came from Norway to the States.. This mysterious man is a question mark.

Actually I just know that he married Elsie River/Rivers, a daughter of Vihtori (Victor) River who was my greatgrandpa's brother.

Are there any hints and tips for me where I could find more information?

Hi Denise,

Thanks for your efforts. :) I think this Bert Iverson is not the person I'm looking for. I heard that "the right one" was born 1900 in Minnesota and died in 1950. His father may have been called Oscar, b. 1875 in Minnesota, d. 1945.

Hi there, Bert and Elsie Iverson are my grandparents. I never knew Bert as he was gone by the time I was born. His father is Oscar. Unfortunately my father is older and doesn't have many details about Bert and Oscar. I have been curious to know more history about him and his side of the family, where in Norway they are from etc. We do know a bit about Elsie's side of the family and their Finish roots (Rouvola?). I hope to hear back from you.
