Im seeking family.

At least 9 of my great-great grandparents children emigrated to Usa between 1877 and 1893. The left from the Farnes farm in Balestrand, Sogn og Fjordane Norway. There parents were Bendik Pederson Farnes and Dorthe Katarina Ellingsdotter.

Here is the norwegian-spelled names and information.

1. Anne Bendiksdatter Farnes b. 18/01-1850. She went to U.S in 1883, and got married with someone called Simon Rusten (?)

2. Kristi Bendikson Farnes b. 13/11-1852. She left in 1876 and got married with Tønnes.

3. Pernille Bendiksen Farnes. Came to U.s as a widdow in 1893. She left with here two children Anders and Hansina Hanson Menes.

4. Hans Bendiksen Farnes b 22/12-1858. Left 1877. Married someone called Lina.

5. Marie Kristine Bendikson Farnes b 1/7-1860. Left 1881

6. Thomas Kristian Bendikson Farnes b. 4/5-1863. Left 1881

7. Hermund Bendikson Farnes b. 3/4-1865. Left 1886. Married Johanna.

8. Lovise Bendikson Farnes b. 4/9-1869. Went 1869. Married Eirik.

9. Johan Bendiksen Farnes b. 22/3-1866. Left 1886

I hope someone can help me to locate some family. It seems that most of them went to Lake Preston, Kingsbury, South Dakota. But I dont know that for sure.

Hope someone understand my bad english :)
