Krogstad Family History

Krogstad Family History


"A family without a genealogy is like a country without a history"
Traditional Chinese saying
This page will start with genealogy and hopefully continue into other things of interest to the Krogstad family, friends and relatives near and far.
I have posted the information I have gathered thus far. Most of it has been put together by others; in particular Carol Jo Thompson, whose tireless research on the descendants of Even Throndsen Krogstad has provided great detail over the past few generations; Anders Normann, who generously filled in the background from church records and bygdeboks; Lennart Alfredsson, who provided most of the Swedish connection (this branches off above my generation, so is not relevant to most Krogstads); and Rev. Dr. Gerald White, who translated many pages of Swedish for us. Any plaudits and congratulations are due them, not me.
I will, however, take responsibility for any errors or inaccuracies in the data. I have checked it as well as I could, but my translating skills are weak at best. I have also made some assumptions that were not explicitly established in the data I had, but which I felt were solid enough to use.
I would deeply appreciate any input or information that relates to these ancestors; and will be happy to share whatever I can provide to others. I especially need input on etymology and correct spellings of surnames and localities- in most cases I have used the spelling I have, which is third and fourth hand translated and is not always accurate.
