We will look at some foreign CdV’s this week.
This is someone’s Grandmother.
The photographer must be H. Ingeberg
Bestemor( Grandmother) Berte Karina Aaistad ( Aarstad) fodr ( Father?) Hilton
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.
I mailed this photo to Liv a relative in Norway Feb 28 2012.
