Updated genealogy pages - Troms:
Sophia Matthiasdatter Kierrisnæs The parents of Sophia was Kvens who had settled at
Kierrisnæs in Målselv.
The Kvens lives in northern Finland and the Tornedalen valley of northern Sweden. They speak a finnish-like language named Meänkieli, meaning «Our language».
Her father - Mats [Matthias] Hansson - was probably the son of
Hans Olofsson and Karin Matsdotter from Lainio in the parish of Jukkasjärvi.
Her mother - Dordie [Dorothea] Henriksdotter - was probably the daughter of
Henrik Matsson Kemiläinen and Sofia Niklasdotter Servio from the village of Jukkasjärvi.
Henrich Hofnagel
Trine Henrichsdatter Hofnagel
Aase Henrichsdatter
Previously I have assumed that Aase Henrichsdatter was the daughter of Henrich Hofnagel and the sister of Trine Henrichsdatter Hofnagel.
This was wrong, and is now corrected!
Julius Aas Julius got my mother, Hildur Aas/Christiansen, outside marriage in 1910.
In 1915 he also got the son Reidar Julius Aas/Clausen outside marriage with Laura Jensen.
Julius died from consumption in 1916.
Nora Fredrike Jensine Nilsdatter My maternal grandmother married Adolf Johannes Christiansen on august 31, 1916, in Bergen.
The biography of Adolf contained many errors and is corrected.
Hildur Aas/Christiansen In 1910 as well as in 1912 my mother was named Hildur Aas and not Hildur Nilsen!
She presumably lived with foster-parents in Bergen until she 6 years old moved to her mother and step-father in Christiania.
