Photo Number 626

We will look at some foreign CdV’s this week. 
This is someone’s Grandmother.
Grandmother from Norway CdV DL Antiques
The photographer must be H. Ingeberg
Grandmother from Norway Back CdV
Bestemor( Grandmother)  Berte Karina Aaistad ( Aarstad) fodr ( Father?) Hilton

 Grandmother from Norway Back CdV
Perhaps someone can translate better than I can..is this from Norway?
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update From Iggy:
Berthe married Ole Olsen Aarstad on Feb. 28, 1853 in Ullensaker, Ankershus, Norway.


Update from Anonymous:
Hilton is not a very common name in Norway, but definitely Norwegian. The Hilton farms can be found at Kløfta, just north of Oslo.

My guess is that Bert(h)e Karina(/e) is this woman: http://bit.ly/oz0zlC.

If that is true, then we have a connection. Berthe's brother is Halvor Nilsen Hilton, whose son is Augustus "Gus" Halvorson Hilton, who moved to USA and married Mary Genevieve Laufersweiler. They had 8 children, among these Conrad Hilton (1887-1979).

Conrad Hilton started the hotel Dallas Hilton in 1925, and I guess you know where it leads...



Kløfta is a place in the municipality of Ullensaker (in Akershus, Norway).

Ole Olsen Aarstad was the goodfather of August, mentioned above.



Update:


I mailed this photo to Liv a relative in Norway  Feb 28 2012.


This photo is Full Circle 50 on March 26, 2012

  1. "Föder" (I think) is born, so her maiden name ought to have been Hilton.

    Christiania is the former name of Norwegian capital city Oslo.

  2. I forgot to say that Aaistad should probably be Aarstad.

  3. "födt" (født) means "born", as Crex points out.

    Christiania is the old name (pre 1925) of Oslo, the capital of Norway.

    Toldbodgaden 22 is the address (Tollbod = customs, gaden = street). The last sentence says "Lindegaards previous business" (presumably Ingeberg has taken over Lindegaards business, as the link below confirms).

    Helene Ingeberg (1854-1914) is a female: http://bit.ly/norc5U

  4. Presumably, she or her offspring immigrated to the USA - I can't tell how old she is in the picture - or guess when the picture was taken except it was between 1887-1914(?) if I understand the previous commenter's post.

    Is Hilton a Norway kind of name? Either Family or town?

    Karina seems to be an odd spelling for Scandanavia too...

  9. Thanks everyone for all the help with this one.

    If what we suspect is true then the lady in the photo is The Great Aunt of Conrad Hilton.

    I sent an email to the person that has the mention of the name Hilton at Ancestry..we will see what happens next:)

  10. This is why I love this site.
    All we need are a few revealing words on the side of the photo and voila, the whole Hilton-history comes forth.

  13. Hilton/Hylton is an English name and dates back to prior to the Battle of Hastings. I wonder if anyone knows how the Hilton Farm came to be called that. That bit of historical data could shed some light on some things.
