About  Winjum - Sanden Tree
This site contains the ancestors from my Mom Ruth’s side. I have been compiling this history for  over the past 25 years from many different sources and during the time when I was Genealogist for  the Hallinglag of America 1996-2003. I have a lot of other information collected on the ancestors  that is not on this site.  
 There was a lot of inter-relationship with the ancestors, you will find many second, and third  cousin marriages within the family tree. Example being, the grandparents Ed and Geline were 6th  cousins, the great grandparents Ole and Ingeborg were 3rd cousins, great great grandparents Osten  and Ragnild were 2nd cousins, the great great great grandparents John Paulsen Sanden and Gunbjor  Nielsdtr Gire were 1st cousins. There was not much genetic diversity.  Most of the ancestors from my grandmother Geline side for the most part lived within the  Hallingdal Valley of Norway between Oslo and Bergen within the Fylke (County) of Buskerud. This  valley is about 150 miles long and made up six kommune (townships) of Fla, Nes, Gol, Al, Hol, and  Hemsedal.  Throughout the generations ancestors lived in all but Hol township and also in  townships to the south of Hallingdal called Sigdal,Eggedal. My grandfather Edward side of the tree  were from Lunder, Modum Sigdal,Fla, and Nes. 
 I have placed several photos on this website, most come from my grandparents, but there are a few  From the Estate of Olga Burtness-Johnson of Glasgow MT daughter of Ellef Burtness, and Ryan  Brunsvold (a 5th cousin). Also there are several Uggen photos that come from Georg Bjørkli a third  cousin, who mother was Gunnhild Uggen. 
  I will be adding more information about the ancestors from time to time as I have time to  translate what is known about them from Norwegian records. 
 I also have web page like this for my dad's Ukrainian side  Tribalpage. Wasylow Stelmachuk Family  if Interested.
