- NAME: Could be Vroldsen
- From Wallace Mitchell (Cove, UT), a descendant of Francis Thor Rolfsen, after he returned from a visit to Norway:
"Hit some pay dirt today. Went to the bookstore on Krags Gate and met Harald Lindstol (37150755 and email email@example.com). He went to school in Grand Forks, ND, so speaks English well. He showed me the series of books about Risor. Anders had just one volume last night. The series has one book that is an index. The name of the book is Sonnedeled Gardhistorie Volume III page 154-155. It talks about a land parcel named Korstveit located on the north side of the peninsula and NNW of the main part of Risor. It appears that Bent Rolfsen bought it in1842 referring to him as skipsbyggmester. It also tells of this land passing to his wife Gjertrud Marie Vroldsdatter and how she sold various parcels off, some to sons Rolf and Jakob Bentsen, giving the price and quantity. One item mentioned is named Kjaeret which is a very old house at Krags Gate 29. It sounds like Gjertrud Marie sold the last parcels between 1866 and 1886.
"Harald also referred me to Arne Myhlebust (91335690) in the Risor Sko shoe shop 3 doors up from the bookstore. There is some research going on now about shipbuilding in Risor. He will do some looking and we will talk to him at 3 PM tomorrow. I also took a picture of the building where Anders Rolfsen's family had the shoe store. It is right next to Thomas Axelsen's home."
