> Kari Northup,
> I wandered into and typed in Gulbrandson, and there in your site was my great grandfather, and may other names listed on the family tree picture I have.
> He is Edward Gulbrandson, and I think his father - Endre - was the member of my family to drop the Lunde surname. Edward's sister Kari married Lars Nielson Lunde, who was a Lunde cousin four generation removed. Edward died the year my grandfather, Edward Stanton, was born (1900).
> When my daughter was in school, one of her classmates was named Karissa Lunde, who turned out to be a granddaughter of Kari's. So my daughter and this girl are related in two ways. A friend of my other daughter, it turns out is also related somehow through Kari, but her grandfather is not being co-operative in clearing up names. I have to pursue that from some other direction.
> This family is largely from Hayward, MN, a very small farming town. There is a little cemetery there with LOTS of Gulbrandsons and Lundes there - including my grandparents. Many moved to Albert Lea, MN at some point.
> Gerri (Gulbrandson) Leonard

> My Grandfather had a huge brown toned copy of this family tree. We took it to a printer and had copies made. I love looking at it. The thing of it is, wherever there is a new spouse, that is another family line to follow. I don't have a lot on knowledge about the family. I have tried here and there. My grandfather was pretty quiet, and when I was old enough to ask, he was that much older. We have a couple of ancient photo albums with very little information on them. They most likely came from my g-grandmother (Bertha Bensen* Gulbrandson - *not sure about the spelling). The photos all seem to have been taken here in MN.
> My mom is the real family tree buff. She is working on her family the most. They immigrated here from Mexico in 1915, so most of the old info is far away. She has done a pretty good job though. Many people from both families came up, so there are many cousins with stories and memories that give starting points. And of course the Church down there has lists and lists. She has been making notes of my dad's family though, so she will for sure check out you site.
