Re: Does anybody have relatives in Norway?

God Dag Rita,

As you can see, my name is also Fallin. However (dessverre), my family came to America before 1680 and appears to have come from Ireland. The names Fallon, Fallin, and Fallen are all present in Ireland.

I do believe that some Fallins also came to America from Norge. I have seen an index of "Minnesotat Naturalization Records" that lists both a Christin Fallin and a William Fallin. As you may know, many Norsk innvandrere came to Minnesota.

I also have a record of what appears to be your family through references at "http://www.h2a.net/slekt/wga19.html#13445".

I can read Norsk quite easily, although I cannot speak or write it well. If you have further questions, please feel free to write them in Norsk. I will understand.

My direct e-mail is JakFF@aol.com.

Jack Fallin
Walnut Creek, CA
