Jim Bjorklund maxims@gateway.net writes:

"I have checked with Washburn, Wisconsin and theytell me that the marriage date for Adrina Bjolgerud, married to Ole P. Swanby listed as 1888 in Chicago, is not verified by the state of Illinois. I cannot locate Adrina in Norway. The Vesterheim Genealogical Center in Madison, Wisconsin couldn't locate an Andrina Bjolgerud in Norway. They also weren't married in Wisconsin. I would appreciate any helpful information you could give me."
